As you may remember I have a list of rules about purchasing new yarn in order to control my stash and my budget! Last week I amended the rules for non-inclusion to allow the purchase of yarn for projects already in my queue. But there is another circumstance that I need to allow for that I had not anticipated would arise — the purchases of yarn in a foreign country.
New rule: Yarn may be purchased anytime one is traveling in a foreign country, provided that a pattern is also purchased and the resulting kit is immediately added to one’s Ravelry queue.
Therefore, I now have the following kits in my queue:
The kits were purchased at The Silk Weaving Studio on Granville Island in Vancouver, BC, Canada. I had to use my passport to get there; therefore, under the new rules, this SANJOSILK yarn qualifies to be in my stash! Yahoo!! (OMG! I LOVE this SILK and wool yarn — to die for!)
