Stash Report – Week 3, 2017

1/15/2017

Nothing Used and Nothing Added so far for 2017. Since I went on hiatus I never recapped my total for 2016.  I ended the year with +48.472.  This is very similar to where I ended in 2015.  I’m hoping to not add so much this year as I want to focus on using my stash than buying fabric.  I really only want to buy fabric for when I need it for a project.  Right now, it is generally when I need something for my backs.  I’m going to continue to monitor the adding and using of fabric since it really helps me in not going crazy and buying fabric.

For the fabric stash:  

  • Used this week: 0 yards
  • Used year to date: 0  yards
  • Added this week: 0 yards
  • Added year to Date:0  yards
  • Net ADDED for 2016: 48.472 yards

For the Budget: 

Similar to the fabric stash, I’m really watching my budget this year.  I’m not going to set a budget but I’m only going to buy things that I actually need for a project.  For example, I’ve been working on a pair of socks that have been using #2 needles.  I’ve been using the #2 – 9 inch circulars and I’m at the point where I need to make the heel.  I’m not so proficient that I can do this with 9 inch circulars so I bought #2 DPNs.  While I was at the yarn shop, I bought some yarn to make my next set of socks.  Total spent this week – $39.91.  I do have $50 in gift cards to spend at my LQS.  I am close to finishing a quilt top and plan to use my funds on a back. 🙂

Spent this week: $39.91

Spent year to date: $39.91

For the yarn stash:

This year, I’ve decided not to count my stash.  I’m actually not buying yarn as much as I was and there’s not much movement here.  As long as I knit a bit each week, I’m okay.

And for Slow Stitching Sunday with Kathy at Kathy Quilts, I plan to continue my work on A Rainbow Garden!  I haven’t been around for a few weeks so I’m not sure if Kathy is still doing Slow Stitching Sunday.  I also haven’t touched this project in a few weeks so it’s still where I left off the last time:

A Rainbow Garden Block 6 ...in progress... 12/12/16

I’m going to work on getting those cream buds stitched down and then I can move onto Block 7. 🙂
