Stash busting!

Yep, my New Year's resolution is to diminish my stash. I never used to have a stash. In the distant past I simply used to buy yarn for a project, knit it up and only then acquire yarn for the next project. Somewhere along the line things changed and I find myself with several large tubs of yarn. So, this year, with the help of Baad Medicine, I am going to reduce my stash. If you would like to join why don't you hop over to their blog and leave a comment? The mere thought is already making me feel quite virtuous.

I also intend to exercise on a regular basis. I started the new year on the right foot ('scuse the pun) and went for a 4 km walk this morning. Now I just need to keep it up.

So a Happy New Year to you all and may your resolutions be achievable!.

Happy New Year!!! Stash busting does have one unfortunate side effect - suddenly you have more room to store yarn. :)

May the yards run through your fingers.
May the stitches fly on by.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and finished objects grace your life.
And until we meet again,
May you hold your knitting in the palm of your hands.

(Very Big Fat Grin!)

Hey Valli, for a brief mad moment I very nearly did decided to take pictures of the stash but fortunately sanity prevailed. I'll keep my stash hidden and only reveal the yards used ;)
