I've joined my first Knit-A-Long for 2007. Wendy from Wendyknits started this Knit from you STASH a-long.
The rules are fairly flexible and I should still be able to come visit favorite yarn stores and support them a little since I can buy sock yarn and roving.
I see lots of socks or sock-yarn based projects this year, among a new found passion (I hope) for spinning.
Here are the rules:
1. The Knit-From-Your-Stash-a-Thon will start January 1, 2007 and run through September 30, 2007 -- a period of nine months.
2. We will not buy any yarn during that period, with the following exceptions:
2.a. Sock yarn does not count. What? You think we are made of stone?
2.b. If someone asks for a specific knitted gift that we really and truly do not have the yarn for, we may buy yarn to knit that gift.
2.c. If we are knitting something and run out of yarn, we may purchase enough to complete the project.
2.d. We each get one "Get Out of Jail Free" card -- we are each allowed to fall off the wagon one time.
3. We are allowed to receive gifts of yarn.
4. Trading stash is allowed.
5. Spinning fiber of any sort is exempt.

So I see many striped scarves, hats, miniatures and one-skein projects and swatch stuff to do with the cool balls I have around here.
So I'm committed.
Which means that I shall start taking inventory and track myself on this blog.
Ooooh, this really sounds like fun.

    I am participating in this too, though for me my sock yarn needs to count since it is a bit out of hand. (16 mi/26 km at last count!)
