Glad you agree with me about my gifts from Sarah.
Now, I must share the good news-
The yarn diet is over!
I survived! Now I'll have find to find something else to witter on about obsessively.
Do you know, in a strange kind of way, I sort of enjoyed it.
I committed to 90 days, and I got to 97 days.
During that period 3583m,
yes three and a half kilometres of yarn, were made into items and 0 m of yarn entered the builiding.
Angel Kathleen says, "May I add at this point that only finished objects were taken into account?"
Devil Kathleen says, "But you finished some things which had been languishing just so you could count the yardage for the whole item towards the yarn diet tally."
Angel Kathleen says, "Yes, true, but at least I got some more finished objects for my trouble and have also cut down the number of WIP, which was getting out of hand."
Normal everyday Kathleen is just so glad it's all over and I have made a tiny bit of an inroad into my stash. I must spend a little time over the next couple of days tidying it up a bit to see if I can spot any improvement.
Fanatics will be wanting to know what yarn signalled the end of my abstemious period. It was Orkney Angora St. Magnus D.K. 50% lambswool 50% angora, bought from K1 yarns last Friday. (See sidebar for K1 yarns.)
Ha ha, I am a free woman!
