Relper's Anonymous?

Wouldn't this be a great group to start for those of us who can't seem to keep our hands quiet? Has anyone created a Twelve Step program for the thread and fiber addicted?

I've been using up scraps of acrylic yarn to make rasta hats. It is fun to combone the colors in shades or bright contrasts and see what develops.

My daughter Alpha, a member of the California BARF (Bay Area Relping Females) chapter of the LLRS, will be here in Oregon next week. Already we have a joint project on tap and I hope we'll be able to go to the weekly LLRS meeting together. It is such a delight to find her becoming one of the relping addicted and to be able to share the adventure with her.

What a disappointment. Half the group didn't show and didn't call. Another left early. No show and tell. Did they run off for fear I'd returned from the south bearing grandmother stories and pictures? Actually I have both but had no plans to demonstrate either.

I'm relping alone it seems.
