The Stash is Out of Control

I have a yarn store in my house!  I have so much yarn now.  I didn't realize it could get like this.  And... I want to shop for more.  I find myself searching on Ravelry for more, more, more.  It will be next.  I remember some of my lovely things were going to be next.  They were all going to be next at some point.

I really want to blog about dealing with my stash.  I want to make a concerted effort to knit only from stash and see what happens.  A few of my skeins of sock yarn I won during the Knit.Sock.Love KAL on Ravelry, but that only accounts for about 5 skeins or so.  I have a bunch of sweater amounts of yarn, they all had a plan when I bought them.  They should be knit.  I am going to go through my stash and really look at it.  I bet I could knit for 2 or 3 years on the yarn I have. 

Ok, let's go a month at a time.  My goal right now is to make it until December 18, 2013 knitting only from stash.  I will re-set this goal in December.  My ultimate goal is to go an entire year.  That may be a tall order considering how much I LOVE yarn.  Just for today I will try a month.  I do want to really look at the stash and prioritize.  Maybe I could even put some up for sale.  They have that feature on Ravelry.  I should know, I buy from other stash's all the time.  I'm helping them out, right?!?

I have an entire bag of sock yarn that hasn't even been accounted for on my stash page.  My page is definitely not up to date.  That will be part of the first month goal.  I really want to know what I have.  Really, really see it for what it is.  I think I have been downplaying the amount of yarn I actually have.  I have A LOT!

All right, so first month will be to account for it all, prioritize it, possibly sell some, and only knit with what I have.  On your mark, get set, go!!!!
