The PLEDGE!


OK...
I will, for one year... in fact for the whole of the next financial year... NOT buy any pattern, fabric, thread, wool, book (craft) or unremembered related object. NOTHING!
Excepting... if I need a zipper, or a matching cotton for machining (which is unlikely since I have all of my own and my mother's stash), if I need a button or related notion, or indirect things of that nature.
UNLESS, I lose the weight I have gained and get down to 11 1/2 stone, whatever that is in k's. Then I'm allowed (by personal decree) to buy (only) the wool to knit this jumper. I am determined to do it and accidently bought the book in anticipation, before the pledge kicked in. The other thing I waited for is some gorgeous Yak wool for this jumper which I am about to begin, straight after the baby blanket is finished (next week). It's all very exciting.

I just read this this morning and had a nice chuckle. I enjoy your attitude! Don't forget your BIRTHDAY and Mother's Day and "Please Try to Remember the FIRST of Octember!

you may all laugh derisivley and scoff into your hanky's, but i'll do it too, yes i will!
already i have the relaxed attitude of not looking into shops, and therefore, not seeing what i must consume. i love using every skerrick of something and having to adapt... you wait, i'll prove it! i promise to admit to any derivation from the goal. promises abound this day.
