Nat, you have such gorgeous projects planned!
I didn't go with the ziploc bags to store my yarn, but I did squish my yarn into the box and was able to fit quite a bit more than I had originally. Nearly all of my yarn is in there now!
For the stash train, I've decided to go with three simultaneous projects -- one with "new" specially bought yarn, one with "old" stash yarn, and an afghan that I have been crocheting for what seems like half my life.
My plan is to knit for an hour every night, rotating around these three projects, probably about four or five nights a week.
My "new" project is a new scarf for my DS -- I bought the yarn at the LYS last November and after working on it again last night, I am about a quarter of the way done.
My most recent "old" project has been a pinwheel blanket
, but it is full of mistakes and I don't like the color, so I'm going to frog it and restart it later with a different yarn. I really liked how it was turning out, mistakes and all, but I'm tired of this ugly yarn and I think I've gotten far enough along that I won't make those mistakes the next time around.
Instead, I'm going to to the January "Stashghan" KAL so that I can use other colors besides that ugly green.
Hopefully it uses more green than any other color, but at least I'll have three other colors to swap in for variety.
