Stash Management

On the topic of “stash management” it is not going great, but its not going horrible either…

I am reaching the home stretch on the sweater and it looks like I will be under by a little more than one skein…. I finished the 1st sleeve…  while  I am happy with it but want to waive in the ends and fix some part of the sweater before I move on to the next part. I think most people would want to finish the knitting portion, but I know myself and if I go straight to the knitting, I will procrastinate forever.. so since I am no longer in a race to the finish ( I missed the KAL deadline)  I can take my time….. although  this approach will slow down the effort to “stash bust” if I leave this as a work in progress.

So here goes nothing. There will be a major effort to make a dent in my stash courtesy of Tour De Fleece the annual spinning event that takes place along the Tour de France. I am five days in and I have to say things are really moving:

I plied a little more than 2.5 ounces SW merino.


I spun up the remaining 2 ounces of the Merino Cashmere Nylon.


I have spun up 6 ounces of SW merino

I don’t really have a goal other to get as much of it out of the bins as possible. So It will be interesting to see what happens.

  1. Ok I like the new format. You are only one sleeve away great. I always weave ends as I go, I know I can hear the 😬 eeks but if I don’t it’s to overwhelming at the end. Once in a while it’s been an issue but guess I’m a slow learner.

    Good luck on the emptiness of the tubs
