I've decided to join Wendy and L-B's Knit from Your Stash-along for 2007. Here are my tweaked guidelines:
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. Sock yarn does not count. What? You think we are made of stone? I have enough sock yarn to make at least 23 pair of socks. No need for more for a while.
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 three times. I want to give myself a little more than one exception. I figure once every three months is reasonable. There's another Webs trip in my future, I'm sure!
3. We are allowed to receive gifts of yarn. Hint, hint. My b'day isn't that far away!!
Spinning fiber of any sort is exempt. No new spinning fiber until I've spun at least the wedding shawl fiber. And maybe more of that Romney I purchased last year.
I'm thinking about other resolutions and projects for the new year, but wanted this to have its own post for when the going gets tough. I'm sure I'll need to review this now and again!
