I reviewed the ratio of Finished Objects to New Yarn purchases reported recently on this blog, and it doesn't look good. In fact, it's a little embarassing. Lots of new yarn. Not so much with the finished objects.
So I'm considering joining Knit From Your Stash 2007 for the second half of the year. I have so many beautiful sock yarns and so many nice sweater yarns that it's just foolish to keep buying more yarn.
So, here are the modified rules I'm considering:
1. The Knit-From-Your-Stash-a-Thon will start July 1, 2007 and end December 31, 2007.
2. I will not buy yarn during that time, with a few exceptions.
2.a. The clever knitter behind Knit-From-Your Stash had an exemption for sock yarn. Tempting, but sock yarn is a big part of the problem. So no sock yarn. Eek!
2.b. Yarn may be purchased for a specific requested knitted gift. I will make every effort not to encourage recipients in the direction of a yarn I want to buy or try. That would be cheating.
2.c. If I run out of yarn mid-project, I can buy enough to finish the project.
2.d. If I go to Rhinebeck, it does not count.
3. Yarny gifts and swaps are also permitted.
What do you think? Reasonable?
