Welcome to my Stash-A-Long!!

Please feel free to grab this button!

The object here is to knit and/or crochet or create whatever it is you make from your stash for as long as you can. My goal is 12 months worth because I have a ridiculous stash! As a stay-at-home Mom it's time to stop the yarn buying insanity before my 20 month-old becomes aware of my nasty little habit.

These are guidelines that were altered (with permission) from

1. The Stash-A-Long started January 1, 2007 (or from the moment you found this and want to join in) and run through December 31, 2007.

2. Don't buy any yarn during that period, with the following exceptions:

2.a. Incredibly priced sale yarn does not count. A yarn sale is a terrible thing to waste. However, unless it is an emergency (you define emergency) you should hold off on making anything from it in '07. Afterall, the object here is to eliminate the stash you've already created.

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. I've already had to do that once.

2.d. We each get one "Get Out of Jail Free" card -- we are each allowed to fall off the wagon one time. (Love this one! Thanks Wendy!)

3. We are allowed to receive gifts of yarn.

4. Trading stash is allowed.

5. Spinning fiber of any sort is exempt.

Just try and do the best you can. Can't wait to see what y'all create from stash. Even if you just want to post the creations that you make from your stash this year without participating "full-up" we'd love to see those too!
