Ok, me not getting new yarn is just not going to happen. I think I can still make it till september if i add these 3 addendums:
exception a: Yarn purchased for the sole purpose of teaching does not count as stash. It is an office supply.
exception b: Recycling is good for the enviroment; therefore, yarn recycled from thrift store sweaters is A-ok.
exception c: Adding store-bought to stash can be excused if and only if these two conditions are met 1) Yarn is on CRAZY sale – minimum 60%-off AND 2) there is already a project in mind. this means pattern is already bought, written or printed off the inter-web. (condition 2 can be excused for yarn bought for holiday gifts – that goes in storage till september anyway.)
