Knitting machines galore since one is never enough, photo tutorials, and knits gone wild

The Yarn Game

yarn game list of yarn purchases and salesIn an attempt to limit my yarn splurges, I keep a tally each year of how much yarn I buy. I turn it into a game to see how far I can stretch a $100 without going over budget.

Remember, given the number of garage sales and thrift stores I visit, $100 goes a long ways.

For me it isn’t so much an issue of money. It’s a fear of volume.

Right now I have over 500 cones in my basement that came with three different knitting machines. Basically I inherited other ladies’ hoards to supplement my own.

The Yarn Game rules are simple. If I buy yarn, I write it down. If I sell yarn, I deduct it from the total. This gives we wiggle room to buy good stuff at real knitting stores.

With two months left in the year, I’m currently at $60.92. I think I can make it.
