I will definitely commit to de-stashing in 2009, though I'm not sure I can manage a stash-ghan as well as the 5-10 projects I have that are unfinished. So like Marria I will work on my UFOs until there are no more and then work my way through my oh so huge stash.

I'll be home with a newborn early in 2009 (i'm due Feb 27 - another boy for me) So I'll likely put the knitting aside whilst I get #2 settled, but I'll pick it right back up again when he starts sleeping for longer stretches and I am not completely pooped.

Nice thing about the seamless blanket, no matter which style you choose: you can work on it, put it aside, then pick it up again when you have time!!

I bought my ticket
I hopped on board the Stash train last night and started knitting up some of the cotton yarn I have. I am working on seeral Baby Genius Burp Cloths and Baby Bibs for some expecting mothers.

I plan on destashing this year. My stash isn't that big, but I have only been at this knitting business since July and I can see it getting way outta control. I don't know if I'm going to join the Afghan KAL, but I'm gonna think about it.

I did organize my queue on Raverly, so I know what will be next OTN.

Even though I failed miserably last year - I'm on the train this year! In fact one of my goals this year is to not buy any yarn in the first 6 months! Although I have to confess that i did buy some Dream In Color this week before today!

I started today using some Bernat Alpaca Natural blends to create a Baby Cocoon for a friend's photography business. I'm also using up some Katia yarn for a neck warmer for another friend.

I plan to do the stashghan and use up my Caron Pounders and other acrylic yarn also.

I don't see how that would be cheating. You aren't buying more yarn, so that's the important thing.

nah, just using the store credit for the things i need, like the correct size straight needles (found the yarn sticking to the bamboo needles... thus making it a royal pain to attempt to use what's in my stash)....


I already printed out a list for my dh to shop from for my birthday... It's ALL various feet and attatchments for my sewing machine so I can make a dent in the three 21 gallon rubbermaid bins of fabric i have (i only bought what's in one bin... the other two were given to me via free cycle). I hate working on the quilts only to have a pucker show up on the back when i'm doing the actual quilting because I don't have a feeder foot or the free motion foot... I even went and color coded so he knows which ones take priority over the other parts

I would love to learn to sew, but I don't have any room! And remember, if you are given yarn for your birthday, that doesn't count!

Yarn acquired with gift cards is BONUS YARN...and doesn't count against you! Try to get yarn that you will use asap!
