Summer of Stash

Hmm. Well, I missed the official sign-up, but I'm committing myself to the Summer of Stash. Don't worry, that is neither dirty, nor drug-related. That means that I will not buy any yarn this summer, but will use only things from my yarn stash. What's a yarn stash? If you have to ask, you probably won't understand. But once you start knitting there's something that comes over you and you buy yarn for future projects and it just doesn't stop. Now, I'm not as bad as a lot of people out there (I'm not hiding yarn in the piano, or in the sleeves of coats hanging in closets), but I do think that I should commit to completing the projects I have already purchased yarn for.

I am announcing this on here because then I will have to be better about actually doing it. And then J will know about it.

The official SOS program allows you to pre-set some exceptions. My exception will be if I need to purchase yarn to complete my project for my One Skein Secret Pal. And that's it. This is tough love.

Wish me luck!

I need one for other crafting supplies, including themed fabric (for sewing welding hats--and my husband doesn't even weld anymore!) and rubber stamping supplies.
