Stash Reducing Project 2018

Last year was not really a great year for knitting. I had some trouble with my left hand (tendonitis ...). So I only knitted some projects in the first few month of the year, did my usual break over the summer (it was just way too warm) and then I had to keep my hand in a hand splint. It has gotten a lot better but I'm still taking it easy. But that doesn't mean I abandoned my stash organising routine. For the sixth year in a row I'm now working on reducing my yarn stash. In 2018 I started with of 4.750g of yarn and had the resolution to end the year with the same amount or less in my stash. And I reached that goal - by the end of 2018 I had a total of 4.340g in my stash. Thats a minus of 410g in total. (And it's exactly the same amount my stash gained in 2017 - that's kinda funny to me.)


In total I used up only 410g (in 2017 it was 2.370g) of yarn and added no new yarn at all  to my stash (in 2017 it was 2.780g). I worked on only 4 projects, finished 3 successfully and one is still in progress. Here are all my 2018 projects on Ravelry.

This year my goal is still to get my stash under 4.000g or at least use up at least as much as I buy. My queue on Ravelry has some things on it, but I'll need to sort through this again. And I still have to decide what to do with my Rainbow "My Favourite Things Scarf" since I don't really like the way it looks and that's probably why I didn't continue working on it. So much for the plan. In the sidebar you will find a link to the project which I'll try to update every month.
