That is just too cute! Definitely adding this one to my list. <3

No, I'm not addicted to yarn... that? Oh, that's just my stash. So what if it takes up so much space in my room I have to sleep on the couch? And it's not my fault if I'm always broke because yarn is so expensive. I need it!


...Stop looking at me like that.
