Yarn Diet '11 Check In

Is your mind blown that I'm actually remembering to do a yarn diet post? Mine is! That being said, my mind is also blown that we are almost done. I won't get too much into reflecting back right now since we still have another month to go, but I will say it's been a lot easier than I thought. I'm sorry to all of you who are also participating for my lack of posts. I promise for next time that I will be better at it. That's right, I said next time! Since I didn't update last month, I'll just give you the totals that now exist since I don't have any numbers to look back from.

Skeins used in the month of March and April: 8
Total skein count left: 267 (counting all yarn bought during yarn diet), 234 (without)
Total FOs completed in March and April: 3
Total yarn purchases in March and April: 1
Total purchase remaining: 3

If you have a recent yarn diet post you'd like to share, please add it to the ongoing Mister Linky below! Good luck with the last month of the yarn diet and I look forward to your updates.


  1. Hopefully this summer I'll use up some of my yarn!

  2. I should probably go on a yarn diet as well. LOL. I get such a sense of satisfaction when I finished up a stashed skein. :)

  3. Yarn diet? What is that? ;)

  4. Alea, for sure! You need to finish the few projects you have going because they'll eat up some of the yarn!

    J.R. it has been a lot easier than I thought it would be! Don't you just love the finished skein feeling?

    Vanessa, HA!

  5. Interesting post and project. Probably a good thing to keep track of.
