2007 Stashalong

FEBRUARY Destash Goal: 1500g (MET!)
Yarn Used: 1905g
Yarn Earned: 3 balls!

bear cub poncho: 375g Lana Gross Ultra

bear cub hat: 85g Lana Gross Ultra

scarf & hat: 130g Austermann Naturwolle + 10g Knit Picks Merino Style
(the gloves were also from February, but they don’t count, because they were pre-stashalong)

Knit Picks Two at once, Toe-up socks in Knit Picks Parade: 60g (thanks to the short cuffs)

Faux Fair Isle Sweater, 540g in my handspun 2-ply + Classic Elite TwoTwo

matching hat: 55g
matching mittens: 65g

baby set: 70g Sirdar Snuggly Bubbly

Viper Girl cardi: 200g Schoeller Stahl Volare + 160g stoneleafmoon “Don’t Mess with Viper Girl” handspun

Kinderwhore bootie variation with pointy toe, 75g random recycled wool I dyed

+ 80g of handspun I’m sending to a friend. I’ll put a picture up in a few days, to be safe. It’s not overly glamorous or anything, but I do love overdocumenting.
Unfortunately, only handspun I made prior to the initial tally counts toward my destash (the yarn in question was made prior). My spinning fiber stash is a whole other can of worms. Maybe I’ll address it when I hit some marvelous yarn destash benchmark.

MARCH Destash Goal: 1500g
March Yarn Destashed: 2773
Total Yarn Destashed: 4678g
Total Yarn Earned: 9 balls!

Yay! But 7 balls used, bringing my balance back down to 2 balls, so I’m adding a new item:

Earned Yarn Balance: 2 balls.

Well, still have a stack of knitted objects requiring buttons to transform them to actual finished objects, so my stashalong total has fallen short, sniff sniff.
