Every year I start by crunching the numbers on my stash. I’ve come a long way since I started counting in 2013. As a resolution I wanted to coldsheep as much as possible. That means, not buy yarn but knit with stash. I find that although there is still enough stash yarn planned with a project, I need to buy some new yarn to boost creativity. So in fact I’m more modeerate merino with a balance between what comes in and what comes out. But knowing me, when I consider myself moderate I tend to shift into a buying frenzy. So in 2016 there will be new purchases but only If I can’t find what I want and need in my stash. A good friend of mine told me she’s pregnant with her first child. She’s absolutely knit-worthy so I know I’ll buy yarn to knit her something beautiful.
Looking back I’ve knitted in 2015 more than I thought. In my mind I didn’t knit much but maybe that just because I’ve been busy with so many other thing. I’m very pleased with the result as shown below.
I will keep tracking progress in 2016 because I like seeing the facts:
