Inadvertent yarn diet

So I was looking back on my expenditures for the month of February, and I realized that a very unusual thing had occurred. No yarn purchases! Not a penny spent on yarn during the entire month of February! That hasn't happened since....May 2004 (why yes, I am anal about tracking my expenses!). Hm. I guess I have just burnt myself for now out in terms of frivolous yarn acquisitions. After buying the yarn for Clapotis, there just wasn't anything I really wanted out there anymore. Lord knows I have enough stash yarn now to keep me busy for quite some time. I wonder how long this accidental yarn fast will last?

In other knitting news, I am chugging along on Clapotis. I've reached the decreasing part, so the end is definitely in sight. I just hope I have enough yarn; I measured the circumference of my first ball before and after the increasing part and then did some fancy elementary school math to calculate the volume of yarn consumed by the increases, so I should have enough left for the decreases (which should theoretically take the same amount of yarn, right? Am I doing this all wrong?), but we shall see. I can definitely see how my math skills are rapidly disappearing with time. =)

Wow! Hooray for inadvertent yarn diets! Actually, it's been a long time since I bought yarn too...hmm...actually, that time we went together was probably the last time I bought stuff.

OMG, and tell me about those disappearing math skills. It took me and my friend, like, 2 minutes to convert yards to meters the other day...only to find that a yard is only about 10cm short of a meter. :P I'm such a disgrace to Kumon (HA HA HA!!)

I can't wait to see your finished Clapotis!
