Yarn Diet

Almost half the year is gone and I'm really happy that I've been sticking with my yarn diet. I told myself I wouldn't buy any new yarn for this entire year.

It hasn't been easy with some of my favorite stores having sales recently. I've tempted myself a few times and even visited my local yarn shops twice so far but I haven't made a purchase yet. Some easy things to help me stay focused are

1. Not finding colors that I like for sale.
2. Picturing my current stash in my mind which reminds me that I still own plenty of yarn.

I might not make it through the entire year just because I know I like to buy a skein or two come the fall but I'll see if I can hold out.
