Good News:
I knit more yarn in 2016 than I did in 2015 (both in terms of weight and yardage...YAY!!!)

Not so Good News:
The amount of yarn I bought this year was wayyyyyy above the amount I knit.

Current Thoughts:
I bought a lot of really nice yarn this year and I don't regret any of my purchases. I truly have been accumulating a beautiful stash that I want to knit.
I'm never going to say that I'm not buying yarn because that's not realistic (and I joined a yarn club! and I got into SSK!), but I really would like to spend some serious time this year with the beautiful skeins of yarn I have. So I think my goal for this year is to use the beautiful yarn I have and maybe buy a little less than I did last year (no guarantees though!).

Here's to another year of knitting, swimming, kitty cuddles and adventures both far and wide (and maybe even a bit more blogging). Happy New Year!
Someone is supervising my work on my stripe study shawl which is almost done!


  1. Congratulations on building the stash...I love my yarnz so much!

    1. I love building it! But I'm so excited to use it...I have so awesome projects planned and I just want to knit them all!

  2. Happy New Year to you too! I hope we both make significant dents in our stashes this year.

    1. Anything you're especially excited to make or to use?
