Cold Sheep

I have a small problem. I have a yarn stash that is a bit.. much. So, that’s it.. I’m going “cold sheep”.

I’m not buying any more yarn until my stash is gone.

That’s right. GONE.

This includes bits and bobs of this and that.. which means lots of scrap yarn projects. I will probably end up making some hats and mittens to donate. I have lots of left over acrylic from the HUGE afghan I recently finished.

This took me two years. It should have taken 6 months.. but I got bored.

Acrylic is nice for donations because it’s easy to take care of, tough as nails, and pretty warm considering it’s plastic.

I also have too much sock yarn and I have yarn that I bought because it was pretty and I have no idea what to do with it.

And then there is the fiber.. I have spinning fiber and only a tiny bit of ability to spin it.. so .. yeah. I’ve not decided if I want to consider it part of the Great Stashdown of 2014 or not.

I’ve inventoried a lot of it so that I could familiarize myself with what I bought and start dreaming about the projects to make with it.   If you follow me on Ravelry, you can see it here. and I’ve also tagged projects with #stashdown2014 Whatever I can’t use up or donate is going to have to go to the birds.

In a cruel twist of fate, a Lion Brand store opened up not far from my office. Of course it did.

At any rate, I will catalog my projects and progress on Ravelry but I hope to also post about them here.

  1. I’m doing the same thing. I can purchase yarn if needed for a specific project that’s going to be sold or maybe gifted (but only if something specific is requested!)

    I wish you luck in your endeavors!
