I cannot believe September is already gone... Yesterday was officially the last day of my Knit From Your Stach commitment!
Nine complete months purchasing no yarn but sock yarn - lots of sock yarn - but I frankly believe that I did not do as well as it sounds after all, because my guidelines were way too permissive.
Results: Despite the fact that I have bought yarn only once (I have used my "Get Out of Jail Free" card on April second), I have ended up purchasing more sock yarn than I would have had if I had not been on that so called "yarn diet" - not mentionning books and patterns that I have also acquired during that period of time...
The spending-yarn-money-urge has kicked anyway and I ended up fulfilling it, but in a legitimate way because it was allowed... What a trick! I have not increased my stash, but I own now a considerate amount of sock yarn!
Today, first day of October, is also Knitters' Coffee Swap 3 opening day of sign-ups. They will close as soon as the number of 150 participants is reached. I missed round two, but I was very determined to be part of round three. I love Coffee as much as I love Tea!
Because I was not able to find a button on the swap's blog, I made my own. Feel free to use it if you would like to, but please no bandwidth.
