Today I've decided it's time to confess about my terrible but changing stash! My stash I would say is made up of 80% acrylic yarn.

I'm not saying that acrylic is bad, and I can't afford to be a yarn snob, most of the delicious yarns are imported and that makes it far too expensive to make most projects.

In saying this I am at the stage of my knitting and crochet life where I'm not happy to just be cranking out acrylic items, I want, no NEED yummy yarn.

I'm still on a huge stash busting kick even though I've been purchasing yarn this year, I've got projects in mind for the yarn I've purchased. Not just to fill my emptying crates.

So today I will be taking pictures and uploading to Ravelry and I'm hoping this will encourage me to use Stash first before heading to my LYS or the Internet.


  1. Having your stash on Ravelry really helps you remember what you have. I have found it really helpful to go through my Favourties on Rav and find a yarn in my stash that would work with it and then queue the project. That way when you finish something you can immediately go to your queue and find a project already matched with yarn in stash. It makes it more likely to use what you have.

Thank you for reading my post, and in return I promise I read all your comments.
