Knitting From Your Stash 2007

Even though I have the laughably small stash, I still thought it would be a good idea to have a few ground rules now as opposed to trying to have them after I've clearly gone mad.

The Guidelines I will follow:

1. This exercise will start January 4, 2007 and run through July 3, 2007 -- a period of 6 months (with the option of extending 3 more months resulting in an end date of November 3, 2007).

2. I will not buy any yarn during that period, with the following exceptions:

- Yarn for baby gifts does not count.

- If I cannot knit a specific gift from my current stash, then I'm allowed to scour bargain bins to complete the project.

- TTC Knit-A-Longs do not count, but I must show serious discipline and have restraint.

3. I am allowed to receive gifts of yarn.

4. I am allowed to do yarn swaps.

Thanks Not An Artist for bringing the challenge to my attention. Thanks Wendy Knits for starting it!
