Happy New Year!
Today, I thought that in lieu of making any New Years resolutions, I would reveal my Ravelry yarn stash total in metres.
Many of you may recall I did this back in August of 2013. So I bet you’re all interested in what’s happened since then? I know I was mildly interested! I’ve done a little bit of de-stashing since then, plus some knitting and crocheting of course. But… I have continued to make thoughtful and considered yarn purchases, there is no denying it.
…Well of course I’ve gained milage! At first look I thought I hadn’t done too badly, an extra 1,100 metres…
…but no, I’ve gained about 11 sweaters of yarn: 11,000 metres to bring my old total from 237,565 metres
to my new total of
an increase of 4.7% for those so inclined.
How do I feel about this? Absolutely fine! I love my stash. I could make some ridiculous goal of decreasing my stash by next New Year, but as far as I’m concerned, if I love everything in my stash and it’s protected from baddies and I have the room to put it; what is there to be unhappy about?
In preparation for Stitches West which is about 7 weeks away (eep!) I’ve downloaded Hannah Fettig’s app called ‘StashBot‘. I’m so excited by this. I know that I’ll be overcome by stash fumes in the market hall at Stitches West and this app is really going to help me buy more yarn!
