Here it is…my first post! I’ve been thinking about starting a blog for years, but never had an idea that I could write about for more than a single post. I finally hit on one last month when I realized that all my yarn was overflowing my bookshelf. I have spent A LOT of money on nice yarn for my knitting projects over the years. Often I go into a yarn store just to browse and come out with $50 worth of beautiful yarn with no plan for how I’m going to use it. And then the next week I buy more.
This is obviously pretty wasteful, and perhaps even bordering on addiction. And let’s face it: since my apartment is not that big, I should not be wasting space on yarn I’m not even using. So this year I’m going to do my best to use up all my yarn instead of buying more. To add accountability, I’ll be keeping track of my progress through this blog. I’ll provide regular updates on how much of my stash is left and what projects I’ve been working on, as well as posts on a variety of other topics including book and product reviews, descriptions of projects I made prior to this challenge, sewing, and photography.
Here are some posts that you can expect to see in the near future:
- Initial inventory – how much yarn do I really have?
- How I made a photography lightbox
- A project I completed in December
I hope you enjoy reading about my projects, and I would love to hear from you in the comments section!
