Stash Report – Week 07, 2018

I know I go on and on about the same things… but I rarely win things and Sunday’s is a stash report.  I won this basket of about 17 yards and again I’m not going to add it to my stash report. In the past I usually do so I get an accurate report at the end of the year of what came in and out.  But this year I’m being more particular because I’m trying to be more mindful of what I buy and bring in.  Which I can’t be with winnings.  I want to enjoy my winnings but it would be disastrous for my stash report and make me feel a bit low about it.  So I’m not going to add it this time around.  I’m not sure if that will be the case for always but it’s the case for now and probably for this year’s reports.  Other than that I have not purchased anything or finished anything.  I’ll take those numbers!  woohoo!

The fabric stash:  

  • Used since last time: 0 yards
  • Used year to date: 4.25 yards
  • Added since last time: 0 yards
  • Added year to Date: 8.5 yards
  • Net added for 2018: 4.25 yards

For yarn: Since I’ve finished the Martine Hat!

Martine Hat

You can find details as to the yarn and pattern on Ravelry.  I’m mellies1000needlz on Ravelry. But that’s one skein used.  It didn’t take a whole skein but I’m counting it as a whole skein.  It would be too cumbersome for me to count in grams or yardage.  So I make it easy on myself and only count the number of skeins used.  The leftover gets put in a bag and I’ll use it somewhere else later when I get around to it.

The yarn stash:

  • Used since last time: 1 skeins
  • Used year to date: 3 skeins
  • Added since last time: 0 skeins
  • Added year to date: 7 skeins
  • Net ADDED for 2018: 4 skein

Slow Stitching Sunday

And here’s what it looks like now:

Block 8 – in progress

Slow progress but progress nonetheless!  I’m in Tahoe this weekend so I’m not sure if I’ll be able to play with this piece while I’m here.  I did take it with me just in case as I really want to get a bit of hand work today.

~Happy Sunday!

  1. Lucky you winning a basket of goodies. I see some other cool things in there besides fabric. You can count however you want. I don’t count fabric given to me for charity projects. I keep it separate and don’t use it in my own quilts.
