Well, shoot. I went and signed up all official-like for NaBloPoMo (see sidebar) and what happens? I get called out of town for a few days, and can’t post. Oh, well. Instead of ditching the idea, I’m just going to continue on with the posts as if nothing has happened. Onward!
Well, since I was out of town for a few days, I didn’t get to work on some of the crafty projects I had planned, which means the blog fodder is thin. Hmm.
I know! How about a 101 in 1001 update! Most specifically, #23 – Sell or use entire current yarn stash (in hand as of 3/18/08).
When I last reported on the progress of this goal way back in March, I had sold a whopping 360 yards, leaving 45,310 yards left in my stash.
I’m happy to report that I’ve made a lot more progress since then. In fact, I’m almost halfway to my goal!
That’s right folks! I’ve sold, knitted or donated (in swaps or to charity) 40% of my stash that I had on hand on March 18, 2008. And it’s only November!
Granted, I still have a long, long, LONG way to go. Bug I have some ideas to get rid of even more. I really think that I’ll be able to get rid of everything by the goal date at the end of 2010. Hopefully most will be knitted up.
Which means, family and friends, be prepared to receive a LOT of hand-knit items for Christmas 2010 in my desperate attempt to knit up my stash in time for the December 2010 deadline. Just giving you fair warning. Let me know ahead of time if you’re allergic to wool. Just in case.
