State of the Stash

Although there’s zero evidence here, I have been keeping track of my stash the last few months. That said, I haven’t been great about adding yarn to my Ravelry stash as I’ve bought it nor weighing leftovers accurately. I’ve knit a lot this year, but also had a few times of going a bit nuts at my LYS or when traveling, so my numbers since my last stash summary, way back in May.

Here’s the numbers, with delta shown against those May numbers:

  • Total of 18248 (-1030) yards
  • Lace weight: 0 yards (same as before)
  • Fingering weight: 10873 (+3628) yards
  • Sport weight: 1587 (+443) yards
  • DK weight: 1587 (+443 yards)
  • Worsted Weight: 4108 (-2324 yards)
  • Aran weight: 254 (-2591 yards, mostly by giving it away)
  • Bulky: 988 (-144 yards)
  • Super Bulky weight: 0 yards (same as before)

Not too shabby, really!

Other than the little I have in WIPs, here’s what all that yarn looks like (inside of my very messy closet).

Top shelf: UFOs and FOs, waiting to be finished or delivered to their recipients

Second shelf: Bag with all of my needles and notions. Stash of dishcloth cotton

Third shelf: Bulky and sock yarn

Fourth shelf: Worsted

Fifth shelf: Fingering not suitable for socks

Last shelf: All of the leftovers

State of the Stash II

I’m pretty impressed with myself, both in terms of how quickly I managed to acquire yarn after my last SotS (less than a week later) and also how much I actually knit this month.

Current statistics (delta from last month):

  • Total of 20,215 (+1262) yards
  • Lace weight: 0 yards (does not include the yarn I have up for trade/sale)
  • Fingering weight: 7,245 (+253, probably just something I found between stash counts as I did not buy any)¬†yards
  • Sport weight: 11612 (+315) yards
  • DK weight: 1144 (+684) yards
  • Worsted weight: 6,432 (-249) yards
  • Aran weight: 2645 (+603) yards
  • Bulky: 1,131 (no change) yards
  • Super Bulky weight: 0 (no change) yards

What I bought:

  • Two Studio DK gradient kits (685 yards each, one used up in this month) from Neighborhood Fiber Company
  • One Rustic Fingering gradient kit (1100ish yards) from Neighborhood Fiber Company
  • One skein of Studio DK from NFC (which I just realized I never put in my stash…so is not above)
  • One skein of Jawoll in crazy bright colors (459 yards)

What I Knit:

  • Various leftovers from projects, mostly Sport weight
  • Started a skirt for E (though that whole total is still in the above)
  • Knit a Clapotis and a mini shawl (totaled 685 yards of DK, but that was all purchased this month)
  • Knit a Different Lines (used up 2 skeins of Spud and Chloe Fine)

State of the Stash

Although not required by the Constitution of Angela Land, I feel the people deserve a summary of my stash on a regular basis. This will serve as the first such review, with emphasis on yarn acquisition ( Mostly because I had no time to catalog the stationary stash.)
