In 2010, the year I was supposed to be on a yarn diet, I bought 33 skeins of yarn. I think I set myself up for failure, though.
I bought 3 skeins on my first trip to Green Mountain Spinnery.
I bought 4 skeins on my first trip to WEBS.
I bought 9 skeins for items that have been gifted.
So really, that's only 17 skeins I should feel somewhat guilty about. But of those 17 skeins, I have started and/or finished projects with another 5. That knocks it down to a dozen. For five more, I had a gift certificate.
7. 7 skeins. That's not so bad.
Did I mention I'm going to the Vermont Sheep and Wool Festival for the first time too?
Screw it. 2011 can be the year of the diet.
