I've been trying not to buy unless it is REALLY necessary, not just b/c the color is nifty or I like the pattern.

I'm statshbusting by making crocheted blankets for one of my favorite charities.

(BTW, with the ends of the skeins that are too long to throw away and too short to use in a project, I've been rolling them into a ball.  DH asked me last night what I was going to make with the ball of yarn once it's too big to handle.  I told him "a blanket" and got a raised eyebrow!  Cheesy)

Miss Barbara, I have seen some beautiful blankets made with scraps like that.

I'm really going to try this. I am going to be moving halfway through the year so I'm going to attempt to use and or organize as much of my stash as I can. Maybe get it down to one large box instead of three large boxes and every nook and cranny of my apartment!

Last year I had a goal to reduce my yarn stash by 50 skeins.  Now, had I phrased it "use up 50 skeins of yarn" I would have come close to making it.  But... I think I ended up with something like 35 more skeins than I started the year with...  O.o  And I thought I was doing so much better about not buying!

My stash grows despite not buying much Smeddley, people like to give me their unwanted oddments and outgrown clothes to "do something with" and I never refuse anything,you never know what you might miss out on  Cheesy

count me in, I fell off the wagon big time this year, I am not going to put a dollar amount on it because it would scare me......
But I cant walk in my room any more, and thats always a sign that I am about to star in an episode of ( Fabric ) "Hoarders, buried alive"
So I am keen to use up my supplies so I can buy more stash, hmmm fabulous stuff I need, in 2014, yah!
