I am starting to get back to being myself after the birth of the Second Princess or P2. That means that I'm starting to notice how messy my house is and I now feel the urge to do something about it.
To this end, I decided to organize my stash. I moved the bags that were holding my yarn to the basement and started filling an old cupboard that until recently had served as dresser. Hmph. It turns out that I'll only be knitting from my stash this year. It is both a financial decision and a challenge. Although my family is comfortable and we don't want for much, I still feel that spending lots of money on yarn when I'm not earning anything at the moment would be irresponsible. It's also a bit of a challenge to see if I can survive a year of little yarn shopping. I say little because I don't think it's realistic to cut myself off entirely. There are always sales, right?
And so it has come to my attention that I have a lot of sock yarn in particular. I guess everyone I know is getting socks for Christmas. Sorry to ruin the surprise. Perhaps with this much notice, my loved ones can place an order for the design and color of their choice. I can't guarantee anything and reserve the right to decline your request or veto your choices as I see fit.
Knit on, stash busters, knit on.
