2013 Stashdown: Q2

So here it is: Quarter 2 of 2013’s Stashdown efforts.  This year I am tracking all four year’s worth of numbers and seeing if any trends pop up.  So far…I’m not getting much out of them.  But I find this fun in a weird, nerdy sort of way.

Why I ever try to make plans is beyond me: it seems as soon as I say them, I act in ways that guarantee that I can not get the outcome I was aiming for.  Early on in Q2, I bought a bunch of yarn again…had April been like May and June, I would have had little or no stash in at all.  I do not count fiber for my Stashdown efforts–neither in nor out.

I’m amazed I am not busting out all over the place with yarn here.

Sorry I’m a little late with this one, kittens.  It’s been a crazy last few days, and I forgot about the post writing thing.

After 8 months of really high knitting output, this month’s number is a bit of a let-down.  But considering I cross stitched an entire sampler in that time…it’s pretty easy to see how most of my crafting time was spent.  I didn’t do too badly for stolen moments in the car and watching podcasts.  And it’s probably best that I accept that until the weather cools down, I’m likely not going to be knitting all that much any way.  I can still hope to do a little better in July.  In the sweltering, humid heat.  Where are Spring and Fall when I need them?
