Lenten Yarn Diet

I have decided to go on a yarn diet for Lent. I really do not NEED any more yarn; I have 2 wonderful skeins of Lorna's Laces Sock yarn from Debb, I am currently knitting a pair of socks with some Sockotta yarn I bought a few weeks ago; I am anxiously awaiting my package from here , with some Project Spectrum themed sock yarn. And my WONDERFUL HUSBAND, who is traveling in CA, stopped in here (thanks to Debb) and purchased 6, yes 6, skeins of green-colored Lorna's Laces sock yarn for me. Now that's love.

The purpose of this yarn diet is two-fold, the first being Lent, the second being my sister and I are going here for the April 19th taping, I need to save money, so yarn was the first thing to go :).

P.S. Guess what? I need/have to buy dpn's in size 1 (don't have those) so that I can knit up all this wonderful sock I go to the LYS :)

Knitting Fact -
1 out of 3 women knows how to knit or crochet. The number of women who do these crafts increased from 34.7 million in 1994 to 38 million in 2000.
