Checking in on my progress for the year:
Projects done: 10
Yards of yarn used up: 1442
Skeins/hanks of yarn used: 7.25
Yards of fabric used: 9.08
If I kept up the same pace all year, (which we all know is seriously unlikely, but work with me here for a second), I would finish the year with:
17,304 yards of yarn
87 skeins of yarn
108.96 yards of fabric
Which is pretty close to what I did during my first year of cold-sheeping, so I guess it doesn't sound too far off at all. Rats....I was hoping my first month had been more...record-setting?
One of my hopes for 2010 is that by finishing all these projects, I will use up huge amounts of my stash, and thereby freeing up room in the sewing room. As I wasn't on a fabric buying ban last year, let's just say that there has been little real progress toward finding the floor in the last year. So.....I have decided to go on a fabric-buying ban as well--though I don't have a cute name for that (going "Cold Fabric" or "Cold Cotton" just not having the same fun-factor as "Cold-Sheeping"). My only exceptions will be:
* to finish a project
* if I need something for a gift that I really have no other appropriate material for (seems unlikely)
* the March visit by some of our closest friends--I can resist buying yarn while they're here, but there WILL be a trip to Joann's then and all bets are of.....
Still......90 PROJECTS TO GO, AND 11 MONTHS IN WHICH TO DO THEM.....:)
