Yarn Diet 2011
Today is a scary day. I'm officially on a Yarn Diet until June 1st of this year. Now before you go "Oh yeah right you can't do that Alea!" I will tell you I am allowed to buy as much yarn as I want 5 times during those 5 months but really 5 times is not very many times!!!!!!! And if I use up half of my yarn before June 1st I'm done and can go back to my yarn buying ways! Even though I'm new to the yarny crafts (I only learned the very end of last February!) I have gathered quite the stash!
So in preparation for this challenge I took another set of pictures of my stash, pulled out every single skein of yarn and then counted them all! I'm afraid to say it but I ended up with 381 skeins, even beyond my own guess! HOLY CRAP! Here is a flickr album of all the yarn and in the descriptions I put all the projects I have planned for the yarn so I won't forget and can focus on those instead of finding new projects (and new yarn) to want!
I do have a set of needles from Knit Picks, a ball winder, a swift and a few final skeins of yarn on the way which will hopefully ease me into my diet though!
