    As many as I can. I try to find mill ends of the yarns that I like and then crocheting is the limit.

    I usually get 1-2 skeins. This way, if I don’t wind up using it, its not a big loss. Plus, if the pattern is small and I haven’t done it before, it gives me a chance to see just how much yarn I would actually use for it.

    First, I try to remind myself of all my other stash and WIPs. LOL

    I aim for at least a shawl quantity (800 to 1200 yards) or 3 or 4 skeins for a hat and scarf set.

    If it’s lace weight, thread or a novelty yarn I may get just one or two to test it out and use as an embellishment on another garment, or maybe crochet jewelry.
