something that I started last year, and I'm going to pick the thread up again now,  If I have the money to spend on yarn and fiber, I have the money to "buy it back" from  myself.  Whatever I spend on it, when I finally get around to using it, goes into savings.   Same thing with spinning fiber.  I buy back the cost of that fiber.  If I happen to knit with handspun, I buy it back at $.15/yard.   Right now I have one spinning and one knitting project going.  If I were to "buy it back" that would be a little bit less than $70.00 back into savings.

I saw the greatest stash buster hat when I went to see Cirque Du Soleil the other night.  It was conical, and striped and ran half way down the performer's back with all kinds of different yarn.  I got to thinking how cool it would be to use my yarn remnants with something like that.
 
Did you see how Paul cut 87% off of his electric heat bill with 82 watts of micro heaters?
