This month seemed to go by in a blur with all that was happening at work and home, so I honestly have no idea how I did with stash this month!  Let’s see…

My accomplishments

  • I made a hat with stash yarn and won two more Ravellenic Medals.


  • I tried something different this month.  Instead of buying yarns in the appropriate colors for my September swap gifty for A Swap A Month, I traded and bought partial skeins on Ravelry instead.  So rather than ending up with three new skeins of yarn, I ended up with three partial skeins of yarn that should be close to exactly what I need for my project.

On the other hand…

That’s a lot of yarn!

The Verdict

I guess it’s pretty obvious that the stash won this month!  I brought in 25 skeins and 3 partial skeins, and only finished off 3 skeins.

September goals

  • Lately, I’ve been craving new yarn.  I’ve been fighting the urge to buy new yarns online or run into Knitty City for a quick haul.  I know that I’ll be going to a fiber festival in September, so I vow to be reasonable with my purchases – I’m setting a budget limit as well as a 3 skein limit.
  • I’ve finally found a local charity online that seems interested in yarn donations.  I will contact them and hopefully move out a large amount of yarn.
  • This may be wishful thinking, but I’d like to spend more time crocheting and knitting this month!  If I do, I shouldn’t have a problem busting through some stash.
