Stashbusting Stats

Since I have a lot of different personal and public challenges I’m taking part in for decreasing the size of my stash (and how much yarn I get to buy for how much yarn is used), I decided a tracking page would be good. Links to my blog posts on the subject can be found at the bottom of this page!

“For every 9 skeins of yarn used up from stash and 1 skein of yarn destashed (I’ve got a few hideous ones that just need to go), I get 1 new skein of yarn. Skeins don’t count as used up until the project is finished (ends and blocking eligible for postponement because life gets crazy). I also get a new skein for every deep-stash hibernating WIP that is finished (this one requires ends woven in and the project blocked).”
