Holy. Crap.

Saturday, February 10th, 2007

Lately, I’ve been looking at a LOT of yarn porn. So in an effort to avoid whatever leads me to sin, I decided to officially rejoin the stashalong. I like numbers and charts, and also confessing, so I thought the full disclosure option (#2) would be my best bet. I went through and counted up […]

Destashing Mama

Saturday, August 19th, 2006

I’m very well pleased with myself right now. I just did my first round of semi-ruthless destashing (that is, admitting that I am not a fine yarn knitter or a sock knitter, though I desparately wish I were both, but not quite admitting I’m never going to use another 10 or so pounds I will […]

Back on the wagon

Wednesday, August 16th, 2006

I just reenlisted in the Stashalong for 3 months! I made a list of goals/rules I have to follow. I’ve been very, very naughty lately. 1. Knit/crochet 15 new things (5/month). 2. Finish or unravel all outstanding projects. 3. Eliminate net 10 pounds of yarn (make stuff/sell). If I acquire new yarn in the form […]

Flash Your Stash!

Monday, June 26th, 2006

Flash your stash was totally fun! Although it was not great for stashbusting (I only had a net decrease of about 10 balls), it was great for replacing yarns I’d never use with yarns I am signficantly more likely to use. I sold a fair amount, bought some (for a song), and got a TON […]

Pink Yarn Experiment

Sunday, June 4th, 2006

It’s cloudy, so the color’s still not quite true. The big skein has more orange in it (the orange shows up better below, but is strangely more washed out in the other hand) & it’s a bit darker. The bubblegummy hank is plain old kitchen cotton, the big hank is an overdye of an really […]

Stashbusting!

Sunday, June 4th, 2006

I culled out a great big bag of stuff for the flash your stash. Hooray me! I also wasted a bunch of time reorganizing my yarn yet again. I moved all the stuff in the cabinet into the 3 lockers closest to my room, and made lists of what’s in each locker, so I can […]

Last of the new yarn (pre-stashalong order)

Thursday, June 1st, 2006

Today I received some yarn I’d ordered before I joined the stashalong. I’m actually kind fo relieved that it didn’t really thrill me. I almost have buyer’s remorse. The first stuff, 10 balls of On-line Linie 20 Cora (60/40 superwash merino/acrylic) , is just a bad color for me, but I like the yarn well […]

Because the first step…

Friday, May 26th, 2006

I present: My stash. Normally all the stuff on the floor is hidden away int he cupboards, but I thought I’d walk it out and face it all at once. But I always know what I have, because I keep a reference ball (tagged with the total number of balls) in the top cupboards. Well, […]
