New Years Resolution

Knit From Your Stash 2007!

I don't make New Years Resolutions, because I break them. I will start something I think is important, when I think it is important and usually loose interest and stop. I saw this idea on someones blog and thought I'd give it a try. Who knows, it might actually work for me. I will give it my best, although I know that when we go to the US this summer I will crumble at the Fibre Shows.

Knit-Your-Stash-a-Thon will start January 1, 2007 and run through September 30, 2007 -- a period of nine months.
2. I will not buy any yarn during that period, with the following exceptions:
2.a. Sock yarn does not count.
2.b. If someone asks for a specific knitted gift that I really and truly do not have the yarn for, we may buy yarn to knit that gift.
2.c. If we are knitting something and run out of yarn, I may purchase enough to complete the project.
2.d. I get one "Get Out of Jail Free" card -- I am allowed to fall off the wagon one time.
3. I am allowed to receive gifts of yarn.
4. Spinning fiber of any sort is exempt.
Anyone else who would like to join us in this is welcome to do so! Feel free to link page or to post the guidelines on your own blog. You may also alter the guidelines to suit your own situation.

Happy New Year! I wish I had the stamina to only knit from my stash. I am too weak. Maybe there should be a support group? Ooops...it's known as a SnB!!

This is great, Holly. These are my kind of resolutions! Happy New Year!

GOOD LUCK! Does this mean no more buying fleece. From the looks of your garage you have enough to last at least 5 years. Laurie & I will only buy you yarn if it is returned as a gift for us.

Hi Holly, I have already failed by going to Springwools on Saturday and buying some yarn to add to my already huge stash. See you hopefully on Tuesday.
