2017 Stash Down….or not

Remember earlier this year when I was trying to reduce my yarn stash overall?  Neither did I, apparently.

I started the year at about 71,000 yards of yarn.  Right now, I’m sitting at about 86,000 yards.  There’s a few days left, and I have some big projects in process, but it’s definitely NOT going to be a net decrease for the year.

On the other hand, I did accomplish a LOT!  I got some very large projects out of the way – including several baby sweaters and almost finishing a sweater for me (I have a second sleeve to finish up).  I’ve been playing the Eat.Sleep.Knit. Yarnathon seriously for the first time.  It’s a really fun way to earn badges and compete throughout the year.  I’ve knit about 3,600 yards in finished projects, plus I have over 1,200 yards knit into the sweater that I haven’t finished.

In good news, I guess this gives me a pretty obvious goal for 2018…STASH DOWN!
