Knit From My Stash !!!

This is something that I really need to do .. I must control this yarn addiction .... I went and bought some yarn today just to get it out of my system for the next nine months.. Then its the KFYOS for me :)

Thanks Wendy for Creating this Great Inspiration for me...

This will also be a New Years Resolution... ummmmmmmmm??? But resolutions are hard for me to keep <> I'll try !!

Here are The Basic Rules :

Knit From Your Stash 2007:

1. The Knit-From-Your-Stash-a-Thon will start January 1, 2007 and run through September 30, 2007 -- a period of nine months.

2. We will not buy any yarn during that period, with the following exceptions:
2.a. "Exceptional "Sales are not to be passed up... What? You think we are made of stone?I mean like those one in a million sales that happen sometimes.. LIke the 11 skeins of Taiki that I got for 99 cents... Now I would have to really be crazy to pass that up, right?

2.b. If someone asks for a specific knitted gift that we 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, we may purchase enough to complete the project.
2.d. We each get one "Get Out of Jail Free" card -- we are each allowed to fall off the wagon one time.

3. We are allowed to receive gifts of yarn.

4. Knitting Books and tools are allowed ... " So here starts yet another addiction " Oh Dear !!

I changed # 2a and #4 to my Own Knitting "Personality" :)

But at least you complete a LOT of projects, Penny. If anyone deserves to have a large stash, it's you! Thankfully, my stash is not big enough yet. (How do you know when you have too much???)

9 months of non yarn purchasing? I wish you luck. I could never do it.
