Yarn & Fibre Diet

Yesterday on my Instagram TV channel, I officially announced that I was going on a yarn diet. Saying it out loud keeps me mindful and (I hope) will hold me accountable. From now until at least December, I am only knitting from my stash and trying to knit mostly for others. I don’t like having too much of anything. I feel its wasteful, disrespectful and unappreciative. In the world of essential oils we are taught to respect how much work it takes to get one drop of oil from a plant. Because of that, we are mindful in the use of it. I don’t buy a ton of oil that may sit and rancid. I don’t run my diffuser for hours on end, so I don’t even smell it anymore. Thirty minutes at a time is sufficient to get the effects of the oil(s). I don’t want yarn to just sit and look pretty. I want to use it, appreciate it and share it with someone. I will be sharing photos along the journey here and on Instagram as Nyknits.

Is anyone else feeling the need to downsize? To not have too much of anything? Tell me about it. How are you doing it?

Until next time…
