From September 1 until November 30, it’s time to fall back in love with the things you already have. New yarn cannot compete with a long-term love.
Complete as many of the following as you choose. As always, please feel free to involve other hobbies or crafts as well:
Love at First Sight - pick a yarn in your stash that
was truly an impulse buy--a yarn you just fell in love with. Find a
pattern that will do it justice.
Soul Mates - make a pair of socks, slippers, booties, or stockings from stash yarn--the deeper the better
Glass Slipper - Match a pattern you already have with a yarn you already have and put them into a project bag to surprise yourself with in 2014
‘Til Death Us Do Part - complete FIVE rows on a WIP that is at least one year old, or your oldest if they’re all more recent
“Are You Lonesome Tonight? - Complete TEN rows on a second WIP
“You’ve Lost that Lovin’ Feeling” - Complete SEVEN rows on a third WIP
“Killing Me Softly” - complete SIX rows on your most frustrating WIP or project
“Hit the Road, Jack” (or “Hit the Toad, if you prefer) - review your WIPs and frog any that you don’t love
“We’ve Only Just Begun” - update or embellish
something you already have: crochet cuffs on a pair of jeans? Ribbon
embroidery? A new hat or scarf to match an old coat? Create a look you love.
“Do You Believe in Magic?” - finish ONE WIP
“Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye” - make one gift
“At Last” - finish a SECOND WIP
“Dreams Can Come True - finish a THIRD WIP
“We Belong Together” - work 40 rows on any project made with stash yarn
“Embraceable You” - sort through ONE yarn bin, drawer, or bag to remember what great yarn you already have
