In spite of my “don’t buy more wool unless you need it for a specific project” I bought wool merely because it felt fuzzy and was on sale. That rule is intended to stop me from making such impulsive purchases and adding to my hoard but it only works if I actually follow it.
In my defense though, I did actually use it and didn’t just stuff it in the bin with the rest of my impulsive sale purchases. I made a little baby sweater.
It is cute but now I have a new problem. What do I do with it? I have no babies in my life right now. My kids are adults. No grandchildren yet. No friends with babies. No little nieces or nephews. No babies.
Some times I try and sell my stuff at my friends craft sale table. But two problems with that…she decided not to have one this year and none of my stuff actually gets sold.
I think I will do one of two things: store it in a hope chest against the day that I do actually have a grand baby or donate it to charity. It likely will go to charity. It served its purpose for me which was keep my hands and mind busy while I watched TV and vented a little creative juice. There is a bit more of that wool left over so I will get another smaller sweater out of that and then hopefully I will get to work on my sewing projects and work on reducing my wool hoard.
