If some of the more common diets were related to yarns:
Weight Watchers Points: Each yarn has a point value and you are only allowed to buy so many points worth each month. You earn extra activity points by destashing.
Mediterranean Diet: Only buy yarns from Greece and Italy.
The Zone Diet: Only yarns that are 40% plant fibers, 30% animal fiber, and 30% acrylic.
The Atkins Diet: No acrylic yarns.
Vegan Diet: Only plant based yarns.
Raw Food Diet: Only unprocessed, un-dyed yarns.
I’d have to join the Weight Watchers Diet. I think if I could stick to a point system I could stash yarn with a more guilt-free mentality! 🙂
I agree with Kelly. WW is the way to go for me. I believe all yarn is healthy if done in the right moderation. 🙂
I think this corresponds to a “Fat-Blocker” diet, but it’s really a cost-blocker. I’ve spent the last six years or so on a Thrift Shop yarn only diet. My stash has nearly doubled, but at about 5-15% of the cost. I’ve given up selection, color choice and immediate availability, but been rewarded with the hunt and the savings. Example: 21 skeins Adrienne Vittadini Trna cashmere blend for $7.98. Of course I’ve slipped a few times, but I can afford to!
I love this how appropriate.
