Whenever I want to start I project, I end up having to purchase more yarn, different yarn, or different needles because what I have on-hand won’t get me the guage I need for the project I want to start. [COLOR=“Red”]Does anyone have a system of purchasing yarn, so that when you are ready to start a project you have enough usable yarn on hand?[/COLOR] Right now I have 17 skeins (whole, half, and parts of skeins) and 30 needles including long straights, short straights, dpns, and circulars. [COLOR=“red”]Also, if see a beautiful skein on yarn in my local craft store but I do not have a specific project in mind at the moment of discovery, how many skeins/yards should I purchase in order to have enough on-hand to use it when I’m ready? Please help! All suggestions welcome. :knitting:
P.S. I usually make accessories like hats, gloves, and scarves. This summer I’d like to knit a sweater and a shrug to fit a size 16 bod.
