Yes, Braden, I definitely think we will start a fresh new thread called the Year of the Stash 2008. Matter of fact, now that you mention it, perhaps we (I?) should get folks thinking about it RIGHT NOW...in preparation for it! That will give folks a few weeks head-start to organize all that wonderful yarn that is languishing in YARN JAIL!

By starting a fresh new thread, folks can read the posts from the get-go...not 125 pages of 2007 posts ! A little overwhelming, eh?

I have certainly enjoyed the support from other knitters who also feel overwhelmed by the size of their Yarn Stash! I have done well at reducing the size of the Stash I had on hand in January 2007.
I have used my REWARDS yarn many times...but that's ok! Ya can't completely avoid a yarn purchases altogether! It wouldn't be natural!

I may have time tonight to get that thread rollin'!

Thanks for the idea and input!

I need a year of the Stash 2008. I am also doing a "socially and environmentally responsible yarn year" for 2008. All the yarn I buy next year will be hopefully both of those things, but at least one (so Malabrigo and Manos are in-the womens collectives make them ok for me). It will cut down on the buying for sure, because the options will be limited but will also up the price of individual skeins, but that is fine, because of the large, larger, larger stash!

Hi Rebecca! Thanks for supporting us for 2008 Year of the Stash!

What defines yarn as "socially and environmentally responsible"?
Sounds like a great cause! Is there a "group" to join?

That sounds like a GREAT idea! Please do post a link to it when you get it started. I'm still having trouble finding things around here. If you post a link I might be able to actually find it! I have had to purchase a bunch of yarn for holiday presents and requests. This has seriously slowed down my stashbusting. I'm hoping that after the first of the year I can get back to it and put more time into it.

EnjoY!
