Use your Stash 07

So, today is the first official Use your Stash day. Of course, I went out and bought $50 worth of yarn yesterday :o) I am in love with the malabrigio yarn!!!!! I should repost our rules in here, since I'm going to use this as my yarn blog/crochet blog.

Knit From Your Stash 2007: Guidelines for L-B and Wendy
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?
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.

except, I'm thinking of slightly altering them to make it work for me and Tonie (and whoever else) that want to participate. And, we want to do Christmas projects early, so we would need our yarn for those. We tried the whole starting in October thing this year and didn't have enough time - almost for me, but not quite. Soooo.

exemption 1) any yarn meant for a Christmas project 2007, is exempt and allowed to be bought.
2) Ours (due to small stashes) will only run for a shorter time. We need a time frame. 4 months? through April 30?
3) we can fall off the wagon .... once a month? (hey! we aren't saints!!!!)
4) books, patterns and accessories do not count.

Oh! And julie and I came up with the months. This year, each month is going to have a theme - I remember
January - use your stash
February - charity
july- start christmas
october - baby projects
november - finish christmas
december was a free month

we also had a sock month, a new pattern month, mitten month etc. Yay!

of course, as with any diet, i expect this to last either 1) until OTL gets new yarn or 2) until next week :P
