Fantasticmio, have you been to that cute little yarn shop in Kensington Market? It's called something like Lettuce Knit and it has some nice, Nice stuff in it. Haven't been in a long time myself but hoping to get out that way soon. Surely Romni on Queen W has some stuff that isn't wool though, they must!

I've been to both!  I'm going back there on the TTC Knit-a-long, I think, but I've never bought anything from either of them.  Lettuce Knit was small and I was a bit intimidated by the knitting. Tongue  I knit now, so that's better ^_-  but I've been wanting to go back with other knitters instead of just alone. 

I went to Romni with mr.fantastic but he was allergic to something in there (not the wool... something else) so we had to go.  It's not really convenient for me to get to, marooned out in Etobicoke. lol  There used to be Village Yarns out this way, but the owner retired and no one wanted to buy it, I guess.  It's a shame, they had some good stuff. ^_^

Anyone want to hazard an opinion on  when a craft purchase ceases to be "new" and works its way into being stash?  Do folks have a time line for making the mental switch, or is it something like when you can no longer remember what project you had in mind when you originally made the purchase?
For me, anything that isn't used right away is stash. If I have a project in mind, but don't start it, the material for it is stash.

Most of mine is yarn too. Er, most but I seem to be accumulating quite a bit of supplies for crafts I don't even do regularly.

Anyway, if it's not cast on in the first couple of weeks, it becomes stash. Some yarn I purchase with a project in mind and some I buy just because it's pretty and then forget I have it (sock yarn, oh my word, you don't want to know how much sock yarn I've been accumulating recently). Most of the time when I put in a yarn order anywhere, I buy something with a project for immediate cast-on and then a few extra balls for various things I want to do in the future. The latter becomes stash.

Interesting systems all round.  I seem to overlap with those who have time-frames to shift from "new" to "stash", and those who just declare that which is bought and not immediately used to be stash. 

I think I need to start putting the dates I buy things on the ball bands so I have some idea of how long things sit around before I get to them, just out of curiosity.

Not REALLY destashing, but making room for stuff so it's not everywhere, but I did destash the garbage that's been accumulating from projects (not enough left to do anything but felt the need to keep it)  still working on the necklaces and jewellery sets, that destashed a bunch of stuff.

I have this stuff I'm willing to trade/sell/swap/whatever

aida cloth
plastic beads

Everything I've got as of yesterday:

Pictured: 12 hats and 20 scarves made out of Patons Melody, 10 of which are sets.  Also, 4 Crochet-on-the-Double hats and 1 CotD scarf, 1 set.

14 scarves and 3 hats were made in the last week!  I've been stepping up production in hopes of clearing out my Patons Melody stash by the end of August, though, my mom keeps buying more.  It's for a good cause, though. ^_^

Wow, that's a metric ton of knitting!  How many skeins did that clear out?
