Stashalong Over

Yes, my three month stashalong ended on the 30th September. I was quite surprised that it took me four days to realise. I had seen some scrummy sock yarn on the AY forum gallery earlier today and thought about buying it, then thought, oh no I can't....wait a moment.... and the penny dropped *cue evil laughter*

I suppose my stashalong was a success in a way. I didn't get any more yarn that I was allowed to under the rules of the stashalong and bought yarn for myself twice, and one of those times it was just 1 ball to finish off a project - the other stuff was part of the SSS, my Posh Yarn lace club yarn and some sock yarn which was a present from a friend. Totally beyond my control...

I think the main result has been to realise that I am honestly not going to use a lot of the stuff I have been hoarding in bags in the sideboard and it is time to let it go. Some will be going to K9Knitters for their doggie coats and the rest will be going to the charity shop.

Now...after all that charitable talk, I feel the need to shop...where did I put my credit card?! *more evil laughter*

Same sort of thing for me with Stashalong, which I finished about 4 weeks ago. Helped me to focus a bit better on what I was actually buying yarn for, rather than eyes lighting up, and going into a zombie trance state at the site of some yarn (esp if it was reduced!) but having no idea what I would ever do with it. But must admit, its fun now to shop again and have recently discovered the handspun, hand-dyed section on ebay in the US (not good...)

Shop till you drop. Well done for the Yarn diet. And I am glad to find somebody else that ships stuff to the K9 Knitters
