Well I have done nothing but dye my hair and play around on the computer all afternoon. Oh and I went over to a neighbor’s house and chatted for about an hour. It is now almost 3 pm.

I did however bid on some stitch-markers on eBay that I was sure I wouldn’t win. But I did! Hooray!!! I got them for a total of $4.98. That is including shipping costs. This is what they look like. Aren’t they cute? I thought so too.

I have a bid on 2 more sets of stitch markers that will be ending in about 1 day.They should not be more than $5.00 each with shipping as my highest bid is $3.00

I have come across this from Wendy in my putzing around the web.

Knit from Your Stash 2007

L-B mentioned to me that she was thinking about attempting to knit from her stash exclusively in 2007. I, of course, laughed at her initially, but started thinking that attempting to knit from my stash exclusively was not a bad idea. Both L-B and I have stashes of epic proportions. L-B had suggested a period of 9 months of knitting from the stash, so that we could go to Stitches East next October and buy yarn there.

So, in a phone call, we sketched out our guidelines.

Knit From Your Stash 2007: Guidelines for L-B and Wendy

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. Spinning fiber of any sort is exempt.

Anyone else who would like to join us in this is welcome to do so! Feel free to link to this page or to post the guidelines on your own blog. You may also alter the guidelines to suit your own situation.

So. What do you think? I think I am going to try it. I have a ton of yarn that Jeff’s given me a lot of crap for. Does exchanging yarn bought recently for different yarn count?

Now that it is 3:25 pm I think I will leisurely make my way over to my favorite LYS to do just that.
