So I did it! I have gone 95 days, as of today, without buying yarn. (GO STEPH! GO STEPH! IT’S YOUR… sorry, got carried away for a minute.) Just in time for Sheep and Wool, too!
In honor of my accomplishments, I am going to buy yarn. Probably yarn I don’t need, or yarn that will sit in my stash for months if not years, but only fiber people get this. (Actually, crafting people of any sort get this, I’m sure.)
I am making a list of how much and what I might need for the projects in my queue. For the most part, my stash is fingering weight gauge projects. I don’t need any sock yarn. But I would like some solid or semi-solid fingering for some fair-isle work. I would also like to get at least enough yarn for one sweater (I’m thinking I want to do a Sahara, in the long sleeved version, maybe using beads on the cuff). Other than that, I think the pretty will do most of the talking!
Who wants to guess how much yarn I’m going to buy? I know other people have similar contests. If you want to play, I’ll send you a set of hand-made stitch markers! Make your guesses by midnight on Saturday, May 3rd! (I will only be there one day, so I am limited by a time constraint, if that helps!)
Will I see ewe at MDS&W?! (haha! crack me up!)
(and yes, I know that is a goat.)
