which I do and have done several times and indeed am doing right now three times over in fact... but what happens if you want to make something that needs several balls?
yes I know you can make a stripy something but sometimes you just want to make it plain just one single colour and you just can't do it. So there you are surrounded with all of this wool but what do you do if you want to make that sweater that takes 4 balls but you just have 3 or you have 4 balls of a colour but it's not really the colour you wanted for that particular project..... what if you have made a resolution to use up your stash.. what then? do you ignore it and go buy more anyway.
I am trying to learn by my mistakes so here's my new years resolutions.
1. Just make small items until I have used up all random balls of wool. (unless it's a blanket then it will be a large item)
2. Do not buy ANY wool at all UNLESS I have a specific pattern in mind and know the correct quantity to buy.
3. De-clutter my home ( which will happen anyway if I use up all random balls of wool )
Does all that make sense to you... it kind of does to me, doesn't mean I will follow it through though but I must...I must!!
but then what will I do if I want to make a blanket and I don't have any random balls of wool ?....you do understand my dilemma don't you? :)
