Stashalong 2009

The object of the game is to have a net loss of yarn. My starting point (from ravelry):
67642.2 yards of stuff
121 items in my stash
4 items to trade/sell
10 items in handspun

The idea is that by 1/1/2010, I need to have less yardage and fewer items in stash than this. Handspun is a little iffy because it's a 2 step process, first spin the fiber and then knit up the yarn. With the handspun, I'll be making slower process since I want to sell my Ashford Traveller and buy a Majacraft so...we'll see.

That's a lot of yarn! Good luck on your challenge. How many unfinished projects did you find?

My resolutions are similar. First part, I must finish or rip out all uncompleted items. Next, I can not purchase yarn for a project until I use 3 stash projects. 1 to 3 I broke my stash down by types of yarn placed into large, large containers.

Enjoy stash diving, you never know what goody you will find...

Wow - I'm so impressed that you counted every yard of your stash!

Good luck on your stash challenge!

Happy New Year! May a lot of the yarn will be used up in 2009. :)

No new yarn for 2009?!?!? What will you do for MDSW? I'm getting palpitations just thinking about it.....

LOL. A net loss, eh? Does that ever happen to passionate knitters like you?
