I saw the article about this new patch and apparently there is also some opposition from Congress regarding the economic impact it would have on our country. It went on to say that these scientists have absolutely no regard for the mental health of knitters and the long term consequences could be devastating.
The first intelligent comments to come out of our Congress in some time......

I've been on a no-buy for at least six months, and I'm loving the fact that I'm using up my stash (it's good stuff). It helps to take it out and look at it, feel it - just like you would at an LYS.
You can do it!
I'm with you.

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 still new to knitting (2 months or so) but I must say I have cought the bug bad. I'm glad to know I'm not in this alone. I took all my yarn and spread it over my king sized bed and filled every inch of it. I had to hurry and put it away before my husband came in.

What would he think? He dosn't know how often I shop for yarn. But it's not a problem, I can stop anytime I want to......right?

I could manage until the 19th Dec but as that will be my bday and my friends are taking me shopping and for the first time in months I will have money that I don't have to budget I don't think the resolution not to buy yarn would last the day!
