Week 1 Stash Report and Plan


Friday, January 8, 2021

On the Needles Friday

 This week has flown by.  I am really not sure where the days went.  It isn't like we are going anywhere.  But I did get to spend some quality time with my sewing machine and yarn.  My first yarny finish for the year is a hat for Meg.

Elementary Twist

And I was able to cast on my Q1 project for ESK's Yarnathon.

Rhythm Hat

This is my first attempt with mosaic knitting.  I hope to try a more involved project when this is finished.

BOM's Away Monday

 I have resolved this year to concentrate on BOM's that have been started.  Starting off this year is Joy of Life.  It was a 9 month BOM that I started around 2010.  I am working on block 9 of 9.  I want to update my progress until it is DONE, including the quilting.

Joy of Life Block 9

Here are two of the other blocks.  I need to photograph the others.

Weekly Stash Report and Plan

 During a Blog Hop last week,  I found some great ideas that completed the sentence:  My stitching resolution for 2021 is ________________.  At ChrisKnits  I saw her Stash Report that was simple but informative.  I am taking her lead and will keep a list of what comes in and what goes out. Starting next Sunday January 10, I will hopefully add a few numbers to show that I did something constructive this first week of the new year.

SEWING:  I have no idea how much fabric I have.  My goal for the year is to only purchase what I need to complete a project.  I have never tracked the amount I have spent.  I really, really didn't want to know!

Fabric In: 0 yards
Fabric Out: 0 yards
Net Fabric:  0 yards
Fabric YTD: 0 yards
Spending YTD: $0.00

KNITTING:  I did calculate how much yarn I have.  Again a promise to myself to work from my stash and limit purchases.

Starting Yards and Skeins: 53394.5 yards/355.5 skeins
Knitted:  0 yards/ 0 skeins
Purchased: 0 yards/0 skeins
Ending Stash:  yards/ skeins
Spending YTD: $0.00


Plan for the Week
