I am....

Going on a yarn diet. A pretty serious one. I have stash guilt.

While talking to Bugsy about it the other day she came up with a plan for me (which at the time I thought was great..Might not feel the same in 6mths time! lol).

I have to make 10 small projects (beanies, mittens, toys, socks and so on) and 10 childrens jumpers/cardigan! And I cannot buy yarn!

There will be THREE exceptions to this
  1. I am allowed to buy yarn for an order if I get one in and dont have the yarn for it
  2. I am allowed to buy yarn if I run out of yarn before finishing the project (but only for the project)
  3. There is a MASSIVE yarn sale on somewhere that I would be an idiot not to buy yarn at! lol

Ok so since deciding to do this diet I have already finished a small project. A friend of mine ordered one of my Baggins. So that is now knitted up, will be felted today and thats an order and one small project done.

I have also decided to include Harleys jumper that I am knitting into the 10 childrens jumpers/cardis. for 2 simple reasons. 1> I got the yarn over a year ago so it has been sitting around in my stash (its not a new yarn that was just bought). And 2> I had only finished the back when deciding to go on this yarn diet. So It is gonna be worked in during it.

I have now finished the front and started a sleeve. I want it finished by Sunday so she can wear it to Shells 3rd birthday party.

Also I am promising to myself that just cos I have to do childrens jumpers/cardigans I will do BIGGER sizes not baby ones! Its not gonna use up my stash if I only make baby ones. Mind you. I dont think I will be using up much of my stash as it is! lol

Okies folks. I will catch you later with a piccie of Caites ordered Baggins Bag when its felted! Take care!

    I'll do that too... maybe it'll be easier if someone else is doing it as well? You need to flash your stash before you start though *grin*
