I want to destash too.
I am AHKAtelier over at Ravelry too.
I have WAY too much yarn. My son moved back home after the army and I gave him my craft room. I still have most of my yarn in his room. I really need to start moving through it.

I get sidetracked so easily with work and everything. Any chance someone will send an e-mail or something to remind us monthly or so that we have a goal?

I need to finish adding the rest of my stash to Ravelry so that I can see what I've got.
My goal is do finish one stash project a month. I may only buy yarn for a new project when I have finished my stash project.
I probably can't start before my Christmas gifts are done. Well, maybe I can destash a couple of yarns for presents...

I'm in, I'm in, wait for me! I can't afford buying new yarn for a couple of months now, so I have to knit from my small stash! I have yarn for particular sweaters, so after I'm done with New Year's presents, I'll move on to these! And socks of course, I have that yummy Knitpicks Memories sock yarn that just screaming at me "Knit me, knit me, oh please knit me" !

4. If it really is an orphan, get rid of it on de-stash or ravelry.

I would love to NOT buy any new yarn but lets face it, that isn't realistic, is it! So I need to come up with a reasonable reward for myself!
Hi Suzie!

Welcome aboard the Stash Train! I made a trip over to the Ravelry Ranch and added you as MY FRIEND! See ya there, and here!

Go ahead and get yourself on the waiting list! YES it is worth it!
I have a thread somewhere here on KH called: Reluctant Ravelers, Join Me! It is directed towards Ravelers who have been accepted, but have done nothing with the toybox! It seems daunting!

I was a Reluctant Raveler myself! WAS.

Ravelry is a nice way to showcase ALL of your knitting in one place: YOUR NOTEBOOK. It is nice to view ALL of someone else's knitting in one place: HER NOTEBOOK.

But besides that, there are other features that are useful, and helpful.

For example, here is one:
I entered a project that used Malabrigo yarn.
On the side of the project page, there were two links automatically displayed:

1) Other knitters who have done this pattern.The link displays all the ways other knitters have done this pattern. Most use different yarns than me. Some knitters make adustments to the pattern!

2) Other knitters who have used this yarn. This link shows all the ways Malabrigo have been used by other knitters. That in itself is a great inspiration. It is wonderful to see how the different shades of Malabrigo knit up!

Go ahead, sign up...and wait for your invitation. BTW, in the meantime...if you have not downloaded the free Mozilla FIREFOX internet browser, DO SO. It is a much safer way to browse the web...and it works much better with Ravelry and KH, too.

If you do not have a Yahoo account, get signed up for that, too.
You will need a user name and password.

If you do not have a FLICKR photo account, go ahead and get signed up for their free version. You will need it to effectively add photos of your projects and yarns.

In the meantime, knit on good woman!
