Saturday Stash Sums

I figure I have to set up a way to report on my stash-busting challenge.  Posting once a week on my progress should keep me honest as well as motivated.  So, each Saturday you will see an update.  Right here.  With illustrations. 

First up is the skirt:  I have already started this project.  It's a good thing I have an interesting sock to pick up every now and then.  This is pretty monotonous knitting.  Mostly a four-row repeat that seems to go on forever.  But then, there are these cute little gussets to make.  That's the thing that keeps me going. That and my imaginings of how it will look.  Do other knitters daydream about wearing the finished product even while they knit?

This week I will begin getting the stash a bit better organized so I can see what I have.  I'm an 'out of sight, out of mind' kind of person.  The yarn is everywhere and I'm sure that not all of it is wonderful since I tend to hoard preserve everything.  Reducing all this variety will be part of the challenge.  So, soon you will get to see what I have.  And you can listen in on my mental meanderings as I try to make it all work.

The skirt looks good so far...will I get to see ALL your yarn in one shot? Can you even fit it all into one picture, ha ha!! Hey, you could let us all vote what yarn to use next!

OK, I'm smitten with the color combo. Can't wait to watch the progress on this WIP.

You're going to reveal your stash? Brave!
Skirt looks brilliant already. I do daydream of how the finished product will look, it's part of the process for me.


can't wait to see the finished product :)

I love the colours but I know what you mean about boring repeats - I've just finished my stash jumper and kept sane by doing Jaywalker socks as I went along! Will post it on a blogpost soon!
