Hard core south beach yarn diet

Seriously kids, I’m going on a yarn diet. Since I’m starting to renew my vows to Weight Watchers and working out, I thought I would also do the same for yarn.

I don’t know what happens. I enter a yarn store and BAM–I leave anywhere between $20 to 200 poorer. And that doesn’t bode well when I need to be saving up for a wedding this year. All I need to say are two words: Knit. Cafe.


So, anyway, I’m going hardcore. I’m not even going to buy sock yarn. OK-WAIT that’s just not fair. I mean, at least with WW I can have sweets… OK–I can buy sock yarn, but THAT’S IT!

Well, if I need needles, I’ll just have to do with my Denise Interchangeables. No cute little doodahs or needle holders, etc.  And if someone wants to reproduce,  let that baby be swaddled in a sweater made from my stash.

And my stash can handle it.  I know my stash is not as bad as some knitters–I still think it’s pretty shameful. I mean, I have yarn to knit three sweaters for myself: The Knit Cafe one in green. That Kim Hargreaves one in brown cotton. And lastly, “Remembering Honey” out of some gorgeous plummy cotton. First the Kim Hargreaves and then we’ll take it from there.

So, you have my word on it, people. No more yarn purchases until my wedding. That means November. Ooh, I’m shuddering just thinking about it. NO! I’ll be strong! Yeah!

And tomorrow, I should have pictures of not one but TWO completed baby sweaters. I know! Crazy!

  1. Yeah. You can’t go cold-turkey on sock yarn. That’s just too harsh. You know, some withdrawals can be life-threatening. Besides that, I just saw that Trekking is a REALLY good price at Webs… oh. I shouldn’t have said that.
