Need to go on a no-buy, starting......?
Anyone want to try? I have one teensy order I want to place and then, I'm done until I finish the WIMs and the WIPs I have going on. Or at least no more buying until the end of the year?

I need support!

I thought about it for about 30 sec's. Sorry I don't think I'm ready for that. Do they have a patch for this addiction?
I forgot to say that a friend and I are going on a LYS run next week. We will be hitting about 4 stores. My bad.

The scientists are working on the patch but the AKA (American Knitting Association) is lobbying hard against the further development of this project.

Maybe a modified no-buy?
No yarns unless they are on sale or discontinued (in which case, you HAVE to buy)......

Just trying to do a few baby steps here!

Well, if it's on sale, you HAVE to buy something. I mean that's in the knitter's handbook, it's like....law.

See how quickly y'all are catching on?
I placed an order tonight ONLY because (okay, I could have improvised) my LYS didn't have all of the DB Pure Cotton that I needed for my baby blanket. I had the light blue and the mint.....

And I DID say after one teensy order.....

Okay, I vow to try very hard not to buy any yarn, one day at a time. I should make it through tomorrow.....

How about if they are for sale? Can I buy then?

This reminds me of the stashies project we started at the beginning of the year. That was this year, right? I've never bought more new yarn in my life, lol. It's like a diet, the minute you think you can't, you MUST.

The good news is that at some point you will actually run out of money and credit and things you can sell, and then you will find yourself able to quit buying yarn, lol.

I'm right there with you! I've got so many projects already on needles and so so many floating around my head that my fingers are already mentally casting on the next one before I'm even halfway through the first. I think I need professional help.
