Yarn Diet

Okay, that's it. I'm going on a yarn diet - no more new yarn until I use up what I have! Except for swaps of course, can't expect my pal to go without just because I'm on a yarn diet. And gifts of course. And really, really, good sales. But that's it! I have a handy, dandy, little tracker on top of my blog now - do you see it? No more new yarn until it gets to the end. The big problem is that most of my yarn stash is in single skeins and partial skeins - so there are going to be a lot of one-skein projects. Here is my first - The Clutch you'll never give up from the One Skein Book. I knit it from some bulky Fleece Peace yarn that I've had for a few years now. I finished off the skein by knitting a rectangle to felt and use for leaves for felted flowers. It took me only 7 innings to knit (Sox were losing so I went to bed). It's drying now, and still needs embellishing - but this skein of yarn is gone from my stash! These two skeins of knitpicks Merino Style are next. Depending on how the Sox do tonight - I may be able to update my ticker tomorrow!

You had plenty of inings to knit tonight, too bad they lost.

The clutch is the bag that I made for Dobarah. It was such an easy knit and felted so nicely. I was thinking that I should make myself one! Or, it would be a good Christmas gift too! HMMMMM.
