My 'Knit From Your Stash 2007' guidelines

Knit From Your Stash 2007

(Kaylee Edition)

Knit From Your Stash 2007 Guidelines

1. The Knit-From-Your-Stash-a-Thon will start January 1, 2007 and run through September 30, 2007 -- a period of nine months.

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

2.a. If someone asks for a specific knitted gift that I really and truly do not have the yarn for, I may buy yarn to knit that gift. However, I will look through the stash to see if I can find an acceptable alternative prior to buying the yarn.

2.b. If I am knitting something and run out of yarn, I may purchase only enough to complete the project.

2.c. I get two "Get Out of Jail Free" cards -- I am allowed to fall off the wagon two times. Purchases will be kept under $50 each time.

3. I am allowed to receive gifts of yarn, as well as participate with pre-existing stash swaps or secret pal exchanges. I cannot buy anything to enhance my own stash if I do participate in exchanges.

4. Dyeable yarn is exempt but only after I have dyed what I already have.

Here's the original guidelines

I like how you changed the guidelines to fit you better. I applaud you, I could never do this!

It's a necessity for me. At the moment I have no self control when it comes to stash enhancement, and I need to save money for a possible relocation at the end of grad school. But I could not stick to it if there were no exchanges/swaps :)
