Here’s my rules:
- This yarn diet runs from April 1 to October 1, or until I run out of yarn. This is possible, I knit fast and that’s baseball season.
- Anything on the needles March 24 must be off the needles in some fashion by June 24.
- New yarn can be bought for specific projects for other people. i.e. Steph’s Ravenclaw Scarf.
- One skein of gorgeous sock yarn for me may be bought if one of the following conditions is met: get an A in a class, pass a qualifying exam, empty an entire hatbox of yarn. My problem is not that I have too much yarn, it’s that I don’t feel inspired by what I have, so this should put a little inspiration back in.
- Giving away yarn is just as good as knitting it.
- Patterns/needles/notions don’t count. They’re getting rid of the stash, after all!
- Gifts totally don’t count.
