That's one COLD SHEEP up there!
I decided late last year that I was going to go
once the new year started.
Similar to Cold Turkey.
No. New. Yarn.
For a while.
I told myself no new yarn until DFW Fiberfest this spring.
And then, I could acquire new yarn in person there.
This went out the window
in the first 72 hours of the new year.
I was short on yarn for this.
So I had to order more to finish it.
That really doesn't count.
Anyhoo....I have so many beautiful yarns,
paired with beautiful patterns,
and it's high time I started to knit with what I HAVE!
It gets out of hand so easily!
Do you agree?
And I have also decided to not add to the stitching stash
for a while too!
And here we are, January 31,
and I haven't purchased any new yarn or stitching stash
other than the skeins I needed to finish that shawl!
I'm pretty darn proud of myself.
So while I can't really say I've gone Cold Sheep,
you can say I've adopted the mindset of
No more haphazardly buying yarn!
It hasn't been as hard as I thought it would be.
It's actually FUN! Going thru the Ravelry queue and casting on with what I have!
What a concept!
Working with what I have!
Have you made any goals in the new year regarding
your creative stash?
I'm going to keep myself on the straight and narrow!
I'll be sure and let you know how I do.
And if I stumble....if I fall....
I'll be sure and let you know! ;o)
