This year, I'm finally moving, so I have a small subset of stash with me. I've started a new file that shows how many miles I have as well as how many projects I have going on, finished, and how many queued based on available supplies. All of the yarn that I have, aside from project scraps, is tied to a semi-specific project (Blue Socks and Purple Socks still need patterns!), so it should be pretty comprehensive. I'm updating it every time I finish a project or acquire new supplies.

So far, I've learned that if I have a small stash, my brain says, "You need more, now!" I've already bought a significant amount of yarn this year, thanks to my apparent need to have more stash than is reasonable, a couple of interesting mystery patterns (I'm a sucker for a mystery or -along), and great sales/coupons from JoAnn's. Hopefully I like Deborah Norville Serenity Sock - I've got a lot of it!

Also I like charts and graphs. And colors.

Finally, a 2016 Wrap-Up!

2016. The year I found the Will Work For Yarn group.

The good: I finished 84 things. Not as prolific as in past years, but not too shabby! Eight of them started before 2016, which is not particularly good, but oh well. I also processed (knit, crocheted, sold, traded, etc.) 13.48 miles, pretty excellent!


The not-so-good: I finished the year with 35 projects, fivemore than 2015 and a total of thirteen new ones. Four of those are commissions, and really the rest are from when I started all possible projects for the Ravellenics and then didn't actually finish very many!

The ugly: I acquired over 20 miles of yarn. New high record!
