I thought it was probably about time that I checked on the stash busting progress I am making *laughs*
Last time I checked on it was 9th January, when the figures were:
Total stash (balls): 99.5
Total stash (meters): 19,632
Total stash (yards): 21,469
Since then I know I have made some inroads... The way I work it is that works in progress count as stash until they are fully finished, so finishing things like my ballet sweater have a nice impact on the stash total ;)
Thanks to Ravelry, it is easy to keep track, and downloading the stash spreadsheet means I can total everything up without having to get it out and count it *grins* Just in case anyone was wondering how I managed to get the figures!
So, today's totals:
Total stash (balls): 88.8
Total stash (meters): 17,705
Total stash (yards): 19,362
Not bad *smiles* Nearly 10 balls down, and a couple of thousand meters/yards gone. I haven't bought any yarn in that time either, which obviously helps!
It doesn't seem like a huge amount, but as I'm not counting the balls in progress there will be another batch to come off as soon as I finish some more projects ;)
I still have lots of projects I am excited about for yarn I have already. Plus my brother has requested more socks, apparently the ones I made him are awesome ;) Well, I have some of the same yarn that I used for his last pair sitting in my stash, so that works for me. I have the perfect yarn in stash to make a secret project for my latest swap... That's some stashbusting of the best kind - having the perfect yarn to hand rather than buying more.
And, as there are no pictures in the post, here's a gratuitous shot of my gorgeous llama yarn...
