Someone in My Babysweaters Group just mentioned about how I was trying to organize my yarn a while back...Yes..I did... BUT............

Well.. Its a tough situation for me because I live in two places...Florida in the winter and NY in the Summer.. So .....I have two BIG Stashes...
Yes... I did find that putting a copy of the pattern and the yarn I want to use for it in a zipper sweater bag has worked out great.. At least I know what that yarn is for .. and I have about 15 of those " kits" made up...I made them up before I left Florida and took about 10 of them with me to NY... But so far I have been knitting away with " NEW" Yarn and have not done any of My Kits yet.. Thats ok tho because at least they are all organized and not just a bunch of yarn thrown into a bin....
BUT problem is that here in NY there are just Way Too Many Yarns Shops within driving distance and it is a temptation that I just can not resist !!! Especially when some of them were having going out of Business sales..... No Really.. Could any real knitter in her right mind not have to build up her stash when the yarn is 50% OFF.... She would have to be Out of her Mind to not take advantage of such a " DEAL"...right???
When I go to Florida there is only one knit shop in Town and its a bit too expensive for my pockets.... Only if they have a SALE !!!!
So I have several NEW "KITS" now ready to go... I think I will be knitting well into my 100 's.....

OMG, I feel your pain. I have been avoiding yarn sales, and trying not to open the emails I get advertising them, because as it is I have a TON of yarn and not enough projects (or time) for it all. I think it's an addiction for knitters and they should have a program for it....Yarnaholics Anonymous?

The nearest LYS to me has yarn sales but never in anything I would actually knit with. So I'm not terribly tempted.

But the internet...have to hide the credit card from me.

I'm hoping I get to knit all the way up to the end. And if there is knitting in heaven, then it really will be heaven.
