Well, as expected, I began the year with firm intentions to stashalong until The Great Hoard was somewhat under control. According to Ravelry I have over 44km of yarn and, baby, it aint all on there yet! The true figure may be nearer 80, gulp!
So, I was fully intending not to buy any more. I had it all planned.
I would radically cull the stash by strictly assessing the likelihood of ever using each lot, and selling (to a good knitting-loving home) those I know I will never use. You know, there is stuff I know I will never use. Much of it inherited, but in jumper quantities which makes me keep it 'just in case'
But I was slow, too slow.
Others had the same idea and they, being more organised than I, began to list their items for sale on forums. I valiantly resisted Dee's temptations (by avoiding the sale altogether). But now I had the temptation of other people's stash to contend with, and, it is sadly true, I was weak.
I could not resist.
But you see, dear reader, it was a bargain.
I was helpless, I succumbed.
*whispers* Isn't it gorgeous? G o r g e o u s! I give in.
