Well this is perhaps controversial, delusional and a down right crazy idea…but I thought I would not buy any yarn in 2020! What do you think? I have yarn for all the items on my Year Of Projects list, I have fibre I can spin into additional yarn and I’m not saying I won’t buy any more fibre, as I’ll need to keep buying that in order to make products to sell. Has anyone else had a yarn diet for a set number of months? Did it work?
I have 36,159 metres (39,544 yards) in my stash at the moment, although 10,000 metres of that is weaving wool thread. This doesn’t include what yarn I may buy at Perth Festival of Yarn in September I am definitely going to. I also will hopefully be receiving an advent calendar of minis as well.
Anyway, it is what is currently going through my head at the moment. Partly because of storage, partly to encourage me to dye the natural skeins I have, partly to encourage me to improve my spinning consistency/output and partly because I have no income other than the small amount that is coming in from the wee shop selling my felted stuff.
