Have officially stopped buying yarn

...And I mean it this time, I'm not buying any more.  Thirty eight items in my Ravelry stash and I've only listed one shelf.  There are three more, several boxes and some cubbyholes.  Plus the stuff my mum has that she is unlikely to use.  (A room full).  So it has to stop.  Healthy culling is required, a strong will and a determination to get down to knitting something rather than faffing around.

Unfortunately I am one of those slightly obsessive people who will not allow myself to start something new and exciting until I have finished off the old and boring.  This does all slow down the stash reduction process somewhat.

Wow, that's a lot of yarn ;)

I'm working on reducing my stash right now (not that I have nearly as much as you, but I also have no space at all!) and trying to remind myself that I liked this yarn and bought it for a reason, so knit it rather than getting excited about buying something else instead ;)

If you find a way to actually stop increasing the stash, please let me in on your secret. I like all the yarn I have and plan to use it someday, but the new yarn in the store always calls to me as well.
