I've just been reading of Bells' adventures in cutting the steek, and I'll be the first to admit that my post will be completely unexciting in comparison!
A couple of days ago I made a terrible and confronting admission - I had more yarn than I could cope with. See? Here's what is inhabiting the spare bed at the moment. And there's much more.
As part of the diet rules, I was to document the stash and dedicate a project to a yarn. Huzzah!
Stash: Lincraft Bamboozle - approximately 17 balls
Issue: About 6 of the balls are currently in a Short and Sweet bolero. A few months ago I made a HUGE booboo and I was going to have to rip out half the bolero. I was falling out of love with the bolero anyway so I just went "whatever" and left it to fester in the basket. No great loss, but i sure hope it frogs OK. Splitty, splitty.
Solution: Bamboo Cardigan from "Plus Size Crochet" by Margaret Hubert
Which is, I think, kinda cute and I really love black cardigans. So there.
If you want to join me in my mission, not for the yarn diet necessarily, but to dedicate a project to the unused yarn in your *ahem* collection, please do so! It was a lot of fun sorting through the bed o' yarn last night and flicking through the projects on my wannado list.
