A Good Feeling

It really shocked me to realize that the little pile of sock yarn I'd put together a few weeks ago is gone. Those skeins are now the Summer Rainbow socks, and the Regia Surf Socks, and the Flamingo socks. I never work like that. I'll pull together yarn or fabric and patterns and make plans and something else always sends me off on a happy little detour.

I don't know if I like working this way or not.

It's a good feeling to use up stash that's been sitting there for years, especially when it's good stuff you'd almost forgotten about!

Just in case you're getting the wrong idea, this is not the yarn that I used up. It's the stuff I pulled together when I realized that I need a bigger pile.

Weekly Stash Report

I've got a finished pair of socks that may or may not be included in these numbers. I tried to go back through my last few stash reports to figure it out, but I've finished so many socks lately and I'm reporting them all as the exact same yardage and I can't remember quite when I finished them... Blame it on way too many nights with way too little sleep.  I've used a lot more yarn that I've bought and that's the whole point of keeping track. I'm sure it'll all balance out somewhere, right?

Wow, you must really have a big stash. Although I really shouldn't talk. I do too. You have been quite productive with all those socks. Maybe it is time for a detour.

Congrats on getting all that yarn used up! Wish I could work that fast. :) ~Melanie
