Stash Status Update #3

I haven't done this since March, and as I am trying to keep myself at least somewhat on track, it seemed like a good idea to have a look at what's going on with my stash at the moment *laughs*

Last time I checked (after a brief period of buying more yarn), the totals were:

Total stash (balls): 111.05
Total stash (meters): 21,666
Total stash (yards): 23,393.8

The totals had gone up somewhat, thanks to a trip to Vegas where I bought a significant amount of yarn, plus a couple of purchases from destashes. 

So, let's look at the current totals...

Total stash (balls): 98.1
Total stash (meters): 18,695.5
Total stash (yards): 20,445.5

Excellent - I have actually used up 13 balls/skeins/hanks since I last checked. Definite progress in the right direction *laughs* Especially considering there has still been some yarn coming into the house...

3 balls to make a scarf for my Gran (as I didn't have anything suitable in stash)

Plus 5 balls from a swap. 

And a couple of skeins of Wollmeise, to replace the one I got rid of having decided the colour wasn't for me. 

The Wollmeise is nearly used up, but my system is that everything counts as stash until I actually finish the project. 

So, 9 in and my total is still 13 balls down *grins* I might be getting the hang of this stashbusting after all ;)


  1. YAY! Your successful de-stashing is encouraging me to continue my de-stashing as well!

  2. You are certainly making progress! Congrats!

  3. Amazing! I always feel inspired when other people talk about their destashing!


Hi, thanks for letting me know you stopped by :D
