So much yarn, so little time
I'm trying very hard to be on a yarn diet. It's really hard. I see gorgeous yarn and think about what I could make from it. The problem is that I really don't have enough time to knit everything that I would like to knit. Another problem is I have yarn that someone bought a tag sale years ago and gave to me that I feel like I should use - but I know it's not great yarn so I'm not inclined to use it for something nice. What I might do with that old acrylic stuff is to double it up and knit a quick blanket or two or three for my dog and to donate to a shelter. I just don't think I should toss it, so maybe the blankets or donate it to the senior center. And another problem I've run into is the colorful baby blankets I've made that didn't use the full skein, so I have a bunch of partial skeins. I'm trying to use them up by making blanket squares. I'm working my way through, but like I said - I see pretty stuff and it's hard not to add to the stash. So, I'm on a yarn diet and a food diet. Fun stuff!
