Earlier this year, I turned the quarter century mark. To celebrate how far I’ve come and also act more responsibly as a grown adult, I decided to start using up my yarn inventory.
I’ve been crocheting from the age of eight and knitting since I was twelve. In that time period, I’ve made a pretty large collection of my craft materials. Large enough that I have not been exactly sure how much I have.
Since my birthday, I have finished off 37 balls of yarn and knit 4,260 yards. I know that may seem like a lot, but most of those balls of yarn were remnants and I still have a long way to go. Also, some of those knit and crochet things were only partial projects; pieces to later be assembled into a whole.
So, how much yarn DO I have? I don’t yet know and I honestly don’t have the time to unpack all of it just to find out (especially since I’ve hidden some away in random boxes that I can’t reach at the moment). My best estimate is 12 ft cubed. I don’t even know how many skeins that would be, but it seems like a pretty accurate spatial measurement. The point is, as I find it, I intend to knit more and more of it.
To assist in these goals of mine, I’ve purchased a few containers to divide the skeins/remnants/etc by intended use or how much has been used.
I have a few more bins, but I will get to those later. They are heavy and not wanting to budge to be photographed. (Yes, my yarn is sentient.) Much to do, but I shall have more picture of my goal-busting as it happens! For more regular progress updates, visit the Ravelry project page, click here.
