Now my behavior is clear to me so there's no more guilt about the wool I buy, how many frames, hooks and cutters I've purchased, it is in my DNA. My rationalization for those 'duplicates' is..... each frame has a different function (sit upon, small for small pieces, Snapdragon for taught foundation, big frame for larger rugs).
I started hooking with a small shank beginner hook and it worked fine. Then met the Hartman. I purchased one and it was temporarily lost and was in a frenzy. So hey, maybe I should get a 'back-up'. It all makes good sense to me!
My first cutter was a Bliss, then purchased a Fraser 500...... then the Townsend was born so have that also. After inheriting another Bliss that makes 4 cutters. Perhaps one day I might sell one of the Bliss but since I only have cartridge sizes #6 - #10 for the Townsend what if I need a smaller cut? One of those other cutters will hold the smaller size blade for convenience and not have to change sizes.
If only wish there was a way to tweak that part of the brain with the unfinished projects.
Have a great Saturday and hope you are warm.
