2013 Stashdown: Q3

Kittens!  This latest edition of my Stashdown efforts is much more upbeat than the last one.  Check this out!

While still bringing in a few skeins of sock yarn (plus a little to finish off my Pomme de Pin), Q3 was widely successful this go ’round with 4 times the amount of yardage out as in!  It’s been more than 2 years since I’ve had that good of a yards out/yards in ratio.  I’m pretty pumped about it.  I did do a fair amount of destashing to get such a high ratio– especially some ahem bad feelings yarn from a certain emo dyer– but the yardage came from quite a few finished projects as well.

I’m hoping to finish strong in Q4.  I will not be able to undo my monstrous stash in numbers from the first two quarters of the year, but I can make a good sized dent in them by the end of the year.

September was a much more productive months after August’s heat!  We have been so lucky to have relatively cool weather this fall.  It’s still been warm but beautiful enough to want to work with wool.  Thanks to some small, heavier weight projects my yardage knit was way up this month.  It’s amazing how much non-sock projects can bank up and in less time.

I have big plans for the fall including at least one sweater, a few pairs of socks, and finally trying to finish up the Blanket O’ Doooom.  In cross-stitch I plan to finish my Dessert Sampler, complete my Spooky Sampler, and get the Autum Sampler from Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery out of the way.  I have a few sewing and quilting projects I need to work on and finish as well.  I’m going to be busy; Wish me luck!

What do you kittens all have planned for the fall?  Is it full of yarny goodness or something else?
