So the Rumors are True

Hello. It's been thirteen days since I last purchased yarn.

My husband has "challenged" me to knit from stash in 2012. It's not like I don't have a lot of stash. It's not like my knitting time has decreased thanks to a certain adorable baby.

I am still in the Rockin' Sock Club as well as the Pro-Verbial Shawl Club, so small amounts of yarn will trickle in. I also have a layaway bag at the store that I last put yarn into on New Year's Eve, so as that gets paid off, that will come home with me as well.

But yeah, knitting from stash. Here we go.

I think you'll be fine, the small quantities trickling in will help scratch the itch, right? Right. Austerity ahoy!

(I was thinking today that it would have been funny if I had made my New Year's resolution "cast on for everything in my queue at one time," but then I got really itchy just thinking about it.)

Wow, I had no idea! You will be able to knit for years! Kudos for taking on the challenge! Yay for Dennis for making the challenge!

Wow! A yarn Lay-away? THAT is a dangerous concept for me to hear about.

Hmmm... I wonder how long I can make it knitting from stash alone. I think I may join you, with the caveat that if I start the sweater my brother has requested, then I'll _have_ o buy for that. _If_ I start...
