It was my foolish intention that I would not buy yarn in 2008. Please note the word "foolish". I did not succeed in my 2008 quest but did however manage to note all yarn's incoming and going from the stash. Some months I got more than I used, others I used more than I bought. Some months the totals were the same.
My intention for 2009 is to USE MORE than I actually BUY. I'm not vetoing the purchaing, just trying to restrict it. I would LOVE to not buy yarn but asking that of me is like asking people not to breathe - ain't going to happen. I just want to be able to say on 31st December 2009 that I used a lot more than I bought.
My pitfalls ( and occasionally successes I imagine) shall be noted here, and I'm going to start the whole experiment off now too.
So far, for October I have:
the bought yarn was straight in and out which is the overall aim of the whole thing.
I'm halfway through another project so hopefully it'll be done by the end of the week and I can do some serious knitting on my dad's jumper!
