Call me crazy...

But I think I'm going to attempt to participate in Knit From Your Stash 2007, the brainchild of Wendy of Wendy Knits.

The Rules:

1. The Knit-From-Your-Stash-a-Thon will start January 1, 2007 and run through September 30, 2007 -- a period of nine months.

2. We will not buy any yarn during that period, with the following exceptions:

2.a. Sock yarn does not count. What? You think we are made of stone? (Although I will try to refrain!)

2.b. If someone asks for a specific knitted gift that we really and truly do not have the yarn for, we may buy yarn to knit that gift.

2.c.
If we are knitting something and run out of yarn, we may purchase enough to complete the project.

2.d. We each get one "Get Out of Jail Free" card -- we are each allowed to fall off the wagon one time.

3.
We are allowed to receive gifts of yarn.

4. Spinning fiber of any sort is exempt.


I'm not entirely sure if my stash will last me until September, but I dare say it could. I have a lot of UFOs that I believe also count toward my stash!

The only thing that kills me is that this stashalong of sorts aligns perfectly with my nine months of freedom before beginning law school. This might, indeed, be hard. However, time will tell.

Back to homework.

I think I need to do it, too. Think you're up to it?

Me too. Although I may have to amend the "falling off the wagon" rule to once - a month!!

I'm not doing it, I don't have much decent yarn in my stash (although loads and loads of green and grey acrylic for some reason) (not green and grey together, balls of green and balls of grey).

I'm in... as long as sock yarn doesn't count :-)
