Hi, Lion Brand site offers this explanation:
Although I rarely have the patience to do a swatch. I'm always so excited to get started on the project itself.
I'm sure there are really good crochet help sites out there, but I don't know any to list
Hopefully someone will pop up here and give you some better direction. Lol on your new yarn obsession! I love it. I have the same problem, but I have a great husband.

I am obsessed with crocheting right now and it seems as though my yarn obsession may rival my paper obsession..... not so easy to hide though
