A new way to think about it...

I mentioned in one of my last posts that I fell off the Resolution wagon and hard. Last night, I decided to make a list of all the projects I have the yarn to do, right now, and realized that I can definitely go awhile with no new yarn. I might even be able to go the rest of 2009 without any new yarn acquiring.

For those curious, here is the list:
+ Soap Bubble Wrap-Allhemp LUX
+ Broderie-Sundara FSM
+ Jasmine- Rowan 4ply cotton
+ Cherry- Rowan Cashcotton DK
+ Tempest-Sundara & Madtosh Sock
+ Tempest- Sundara Sock
+ Rusted Root- Cotton Fleece
+ Womanly Maze- Allhemp LUX
+ February Lady Sweater- MadTosh Sock
+ February Lady Sweater- Sundara Sock
+ Shalom- Malabrigo
+ Camisole- MadTosh Sock
+ Butterfly Tank- MadTosh Silk
+ Chris' Sweater- DiC Classy
+ Mom's Socks x2- Hazel Knits
+ Amy's Socks x2- Knitivity Downhome Sock
+ Selbu Modern Beret- 3IG + Baby Ull
+ Baby Sweater for a friend- 3IG or Yarn Love
+ Bath Mitt for a friend- Kitchen Cotton
+ Ishbel- BMFA STR
+ Duckies- ShiBui Sock
+ Marlene- 3IG
+ Toddler Dress for Evie
+ Mini Root for Evie
+ Dish rags for Mom, FIL, Friend
And that's not even all my stash. Maybe 75% of it. The rest I'm not 100% sure what I'll be doing with it yet.
At the rate I've been knitting sweaters, those alone should keep me busy until the New Year.

Sounds like a good list BUT it is hard not to want some of the new colors when tempted by the yarn sites. I know I try to stay away from them but then I get emails! haha
So like you, I too will cut down on my yarn buying. (but I won't cut it out because it causes too much stress thinking I can't buy any new yarn)

I have a rewards system that ramps up each month that I don't buy yarn. I'm hoping I can stick with it for awhile. If I could go the whole year, I'd almost double what my usual "Allowence" is. I plan to reward myself with money saved from yarn with something else fun I've been wanting. :)
