Stitches West Prep

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!
