Hi my name is Teresa and I am a yarnaholic. I must admit I don’t have a large stash, but I do know I can buy yarn faster than I can knit it up. Also for Christmas I was given enough yarn for 7 pairs of socks and um ... I have knit one pair from this yarn. I think my total sock stash is for 10-12 pairs of socks. I am on a budget so I am trying not to buy yarn anyway and this will help me through until Rhinebeck in the fall. I also have a sweater to finish, yarn for some gifts that will remain unmentioned until given, and some other yarn for yet to be determined patterns. I cannot give a complete and accurate count of my stash since it is spread between two countries. (That is correct even though I said I don’t have much stash one country is not larger enough to contain it.) I’ll post some pics after I get it all in one country.
I will not buy yarn this summer except for the following exceptions:
1) I need 2 skeins of hemp to finish a bag. I wasn’t sure how much I needed or if it would work when I first purchased this in December, and haven’t had a chance to go back and purchase more since I decided I liked the idea in March.
2) I need another skein of wool for a purse for my SIL. I haven’t completely figured out what felted purse I want to make her, so have postponed getting more yarn for this project. I have a skein of milk chocolate brown wool currently for this project. Her birthday is in August and the purse needs to be done for then.
That is tough, I am not good at rewarding myself. I always end up not seeing anything I like and the reward doesn’t get used. My birthday is also the week after the finish of this challenge. Maybe I will get a swift, maybe some long coveted books… I’ll decide a reward later.
