I just did a rough totalling of my yarn skeins... and there's over 300 of them floating about. This surpises me for two reasons:
1. I thought I had more yarn when I looked at it all, and
2. How did I manage to buy over 300 skeins of yarn!?
My tallying on a monthly basis seems to be heading in the right direction, and I hopefully can keep this up in 2009. I would also like a decrease in the yarn purchases without going totally cold turkey so I would need to keep an eye on the spending.
I would like to use up about 100 skeins. This is only a third of the stash and a good lot would go if I knitted:
1. my cadigan
2. another cardigan
3. my CPH
4. my jumper
Those 4 garments would bring the usage to approximately 50, so if I just knitted cardigans in 2009 I would be done in no time, lol.
However, the sock stash is really quite large so if I managed to learn short row heels, I'm sure I could do AT LEAST 6 pairs and bring the usage to about 15 balls and altogether 65 skeins.
Its all good in theory though, lets see how it REALLY pans out, lol
