Welcome to our first Stash Report of 2016. Here, I will include both a yarn and fabric report. Feel free to include whatever you want to track in 2016 (craft related) and share your links here.
I was a bit confused about how to caption this report since this is just the third day of the year. There’s always a black hole between the last report of the year on a Sunday and the first report of the new year the following Sunday.
I did have one little victory to share. The Madelinetosh girls had a gorgeous yarn color called Stormborn and I really wanted it. I put it in my cart, dumped it, put it back in and went so far as even typing in my credit card number and then said . . NO! Use what you have. That was on the evening of 12/31 and I kept telling myself . . no one will know . . you’re ordering before January 1 and you don’t have to report it, but it’s the fact that I just don’t need it and I didn’t do it. Good Judy!
As far as my fabric report, I can pretty much guess I won’t be buying any fabric this year and I’m hoping I’ll use some but for now, nothing in and nothing out.
Fabric Used this Week: 0 yards
Fabric Used year to Date: 0 yards
Fabric Added this Week: 0 yards
Fabric Added Year to Date: 0 yards
Net Fabric for 2016: 0 yards used
As far as yarn, for now, it’s the same thing . . nothing in, but I’m hoping to use lots of yarn this year. With yarn, as well as fabric, I’m not reporting til I’ve completed whatever I’m making. And, I’m going to track yarn in yards instead of skeins and hope that works out ok.
My friend, whose name I won’t mention, had also committed to not buying yarn in 2016. We talked about how strong we both felt . . how good we were going to do in 2016. First thing . . probably before daylight . . guess who bought yarn online. Nope . . not me! 🙂

On Ravelry, I track my yarn usage and I think these numbers are pretty accurate. Here are my 2014 and 2015 numbers. That’s 23,232 yards used in 2015. I’d love to knit a bit more in 2016 than I did in 2015 . . we will see.

Here’s a pat on the back for putting the yarn down. 😀
And even if Sunday-Thursday were “last year,” they were this week! Good for you for not slipping through that little hole in the calendar.
Yes, good job of saying no to the temptation, Judy!
Those are Pretty gloves!

I can’t believe your friend would let you down like that.
BTW, it was AFTER daylight. Way to stay strong, at least one of us was.
