Hi my name is Sharon...

And I'm a yarn addict. It's been nine months since I last purchased yarn, and tomorrow that all ends. Like an alcoholic heading for to a brewery I'm going to the Handknitters Guild Yarn and Craft Market  tomorrow where, amongst other things, Ursula will be selling her amazing Little Dipper Yarns.

So, I thought this would be a good time to touch base with my stash.  Last time I checked I had 23,725 meters of yarn . I expected the this time number to be significantly lower than that. I have not bought yarn for NINE MONTHS. I've knit 32 things. But, without buying yarn I have acquired some through the generous destashing of Richmond knitters, and not everything I've knit was on the original yarn tally, like the yarn I bought from New Zealand, and a thousand odds and ends. So, my new number is a rather disappointing 23,095  Going on the basis of what dieters say, it's not what you weigh, it's how your clothes fit, so I'm going to say I'm doing okay. There is room in my box, and I don't have to sit on it to close it. So clearly I've made some advances. And nothing like a mere number on a spreadsheet is going to limit the amount of Little Dipper Yarns I'm going to get my mitts on tomorrow!

  1. Love it! So exciting! Your stash has probably 'settled' and made more room :)
