I've just re-dedicated myself to my yarn diet. The idea came to me from Wendy, who said she wasn't going to buy any more yarn until she had used up every bit of everything in her stash. Wow. I've been watching all sorts of great things come off her needles and hooks since then. She makes whatever the yarn will work for.
I couldn't bring myself to be that good. I decided to knit only out of my stash for a year. Then I added the exception that I could buy yarn I needed for a gift. Then sales became an exception too. My stash is now bigger and better than ever. I mean worse, don't I?
I've been knitting away, but I really have to make the yarn I have fit in the space I have, so it's back on the diet again. I am committed not to buy yarn until all that I have fits in the bins I have for yarn. (Should I admit how many bins there are?)
The only trouble is...I'm hooked on a pattern, thinking about it all the time, and I don't have any yarn for it. In all those bins, nothing will work.
But I remembered I have a spinning wheel. And a fiber stash.
