r-anne-dom : a place for me (anne) to leave random blog posts.
Such as:
..knitting, sewing, and other random activities pursued
..Girl Guides of Canada : yep, Guiding Lives Here
..the 4 shops on Etsy : one features quality handmade items; the second has lots of patterns, & crafting supplies; the third is stocked with Vintage; and the fourth is guiding flowers.
Enjoy the r-anne-domness!

Definition: Yarn Diet

"Yarn Diet: An approach to yarn control known to be ineffective in dropping permanent pounds from the stash. It can lead to dangerous wool bingeing and yo-yo dieting, wherein the knitter holds off on purchases, shrinks the stash, then rebounds to old yarn habits, gains back the merino, and adds nine balls of the silk. Not pretty to watch."
Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, the Yarn Harlot
