We know how quickly rabbits multiply. But, what about sheep? Since my yarn is mostly wool, could it be multiplying while I’m not watching? It has to be! No other way to explain why there’s so much yarn in this house. I’ve been on a cleaning binge the last 24 hours. Speaking of multiplying . . what about tote bags? How many tote bags do you have? I’m talking about the cheap ones, the nicer ones, the ones that say Quilt in a Day on them, the ones that say Jack Daniels on them and one of them even has my sweet little boy’s picture on it . . back when he was a sweet little boy!
Told you . . I never get rid of anything! I do not even use my bags for groceries. I’m one of those horrible people who actually likes the plastic grocery bags. We have a little bitty trash can that sits on the kitchen counter and I use the plastic trash bags as liners and several times a day, I dump those into the bigger can in the garage. When/If we ever have to start paying extra for plastic bags, I’ll have to re-evaluate my plastic bag usage. Don’t even think of giving me the save the environment speech! When Vince is working and not home wanting to run the roads, one tank of gas in my Honda, which is about 14 gallons, will last me about 3 months. And, think of how much money and greenhouse gas I’m saving by making everything from scratch and not using all those packaged goods. OK . . maybe I could do better but don’t ask me to give up my plastic bags . . not yet anyway!
Back to my story . . every tote bag I pick up has either yarn or a pair of socks in progress. This is the yarn I found this morning. It has now been added to my spreadsheet and has bolstered my commitment to buy no yarn this year.
Don’t say I can’t go a whole year without buying yarn! I’m 1-1/2 days into this year and haven’t bought any yet! 🙂
