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!
