I definitely was not as focused on stashbusting this month as I have been for the rest of the challenge, and I have the numbers to prove it!
- I made a camera pouch using stash yarn for myself.
- I started a few projects using stash yarn. I made 5 hexagons (1, 2, 3, 4, 5) that will eventually be joined with 12 other (as yet unmade) hexagons to become a Christmas stocking for my grandfather. I swatched for a cabled beanie that will become a holiday gift as well. And, I made a little bit more progress on the shawl from 30+ year old yarn.
- I sold two skeins of yarn through my stash sale on Etsy.
On the other hand…
- I bought 2 skeins of yarn. I already started a project with one skein, but I have no idea what I’ll be doing with the other.
- I participated in a swap which added 3 more skeins to my collection.
Progress towards my June goals
- Finish at least two projects using stash yarn. I finished one.
- List at least five skeins of yarn for sale in my Etsy shop. Done.
- Continue working on my Holiday Stashdown Challenge. Done – all three of my current stash projects are intended as holiday gifts.
- If I buy any yarn, start the project immediately and get at least half way through it during the month. Nope, I didn’t meet this goal!
Stash: 5 new skeins
Marie: 2 skeins sold, 1 project finished (using only a small amount of yarn), 4 projects started/in progress. I’m not sure how to count this one, so let’s call it 3 since only about 1 skein of yarn was used so far in these projects.
The stash has emerged victorious in this round .
My goals for July
- List more yarn for sale in my Etsy shop.
- Finish at least two of the projects currently in progress and continue working on my Holiday Stashdown Challenge.
- Make at least four charity granny squares using stash yarn.
Did you make any stashbusting progress last month?
