It’s over! It’s done! I went six months without buying yarn (outside of my carefully established parameters)!
I don’t think I’ll be able to extend it for a year, but I have decided to try and alter my behavior a bit – no yarn buying unless it’s for a very specific project, i.e. the ‘Greenfield Cardigan from New England Knits’, not ‘a cardigan’.
I feel that I can do this because I made a substantial run on the projects I’ve been buying yarn for and not completing. In fact part of thew reason I need to allow myself to buy yarn is because I have sweater quantities of it remaining!
I don’t have much in the way of FOs to show off, since I started one of Shelly Kang’s Sock Yarn Blankies in April and it has generally consumed my knitting time, leaving a little left over for OWLs and a token class project Hopefully I’ll be able to show you a finished blanket before July 23, when I leave for Japan.
For now, I leave you with the other thing I’ve found time for – Quidditch!
