I need to go on a diet

I bought some yarn tonight. I bought some yesterday too. Its all money I have and projects are in mind. But I've got enough. I don't need to buy any more till I use up at least half of what I already have. I figure that means I don't need to buy yarn for a year. Its a commitment to me and my finances! I will stop acquiring and start make use of what I've got.

In case you were wondering I got 3 skeins of Blackberry Ridge Merino undyed and two dyed in the Tropical Fish colorway. These will be pants. Part of the undyed I'll dye for trim.

I got 2 skeins of bulky Cascade wool, its a nice 2 ply and undyed. The Purl District also had some really good prices on a merino superwash sock yarn that looks hand dyed. I got two.

I have completed some projects lately too. I lengthened the sleeves on a cardigan I made 1.5 years ago and Grey refused to wear. I made a bolero for Mar. I finished half of a vest for ds. I made the Foliage hat. I finished my reversible cable scarf too.

Hey Megan!

I just read, somewhere, about a woman who has the habit of buying and buying and buying yarn... and not needing it.

She bought some baskets and dishes for displaying the yarn, and used them in her home decor. She commented that now when she has an urge to start a project, she "shops" her own house first.

I thought it was brilliant!

Just thought I'd share. :)

When my kids get big enough to stop destroying everything that would be a good idea!
