Stitches West is rapidly approaching! Less than two weeks!
As usual, I’m working to remind myself that I don’t need to buy anymore yarn. The first step is always looking at last year’s Stash Flash and seeing what got used.
So, yes, step one confirms my suspicions. I blacked out all the yarns that got used up in 2019. As you can see, there’s still plenty of yarn left. Clearly, I do not need to buy more yarn.
The next step is a new Stash Flash. I started with all the new yarns from last year.
Lots of fun in this pile! Pride yarn in rainbow colors, yarn my Mom dyed, yarn I’m collecting for a future sweater, yarn from a trip to Steven Be in Minneapolis, sale yarn from a trip visiting my Sister.
No yarn from Stitches though! I’m reminding myself on the regular… I didn’t buy yarn at Stitches last year. It can be done. It can be done…by ME! I did it once. I’m aiming for a repeat this year.
Unfortunately, at this point, my Stash Flash got derailed. Next year I’ll probably be sad when I don’t have a big group photo but that’s just the way it’s playing out this year. It’s enough of a reminder seeing all that 2019 that hasn’t been used…yet!
I did some winding so a bunch of this yarn is ready to go. Yay for new projects! Especially when they’re stash yarns! I feel a hat binge coming on!
Yesss a stash that looks as mountainous as mine! You’ve got some lovely colours in there.
Beautiful stash! Hard to tell though, did you use more than you acquired, over all? And does your mom sell her yarn? If so how do I find it?
