Last year in my annual recap, I posted that I wanted to continue knitting down my stash, as well as getting rid of other “stuff” around the house.
How did I do?
On the home front, pretty well. We got rid of a lot of things in the basement, and by remodeling the mudroom-now-sunroom, we got that reorganized and got rid of more excess junk.
As for the yarn, not quite so well. My goal was simply to end the year with less yarn in the stash than I started with. And I did, but only by 2 skeins. However, that includes about 20 skeins of yarn that I received as prizes/gifts. If I take those away, I was down 22 skeins. Not great, but not bad, either.
Another goal was to only buy yarn if I had a specific project in mind for it. I did much better with that. Until my eyes glazed over when confronted with this:
Two skeins of madelinetosh tosh sock yarn in Nutmeg.
I couldn’t help it. It looked so nice against my black coat.
