Stashdown 2019: Q1 + Q2

No graphic for this post as of yet, kittens. You’re not missing much.

As you could see in my last monthly wrap-up post, I have not been knitting, spinning, or crafting much since February of this year. This also means I have not been making many–OK, any–craft purchases during that time. An overseas move while your husband is in a school many states away will do that, it turns out. Reading was a much easier past time to indulge in.

So what does this mean for Stashdown 2019?

Fiber in-16.0oz
Fiber out- 4.9oz
Ratio out/in- .31
Total fiber stash change: +11.1oz

Yarn in-475yds
Yarn out-4,881yds
Ratio out/in: 10.28
Total yarn stash change: -4,406yds

Nothing but 0s all around in all categories. Exciting, right? 

I am not optimistic that there will be any data for Q3, given that September is the only month remaining and I am working on a long term project that will not affect any of my numbers. It will be a thrilling entry to read.

How have you been doing, kitten? Did you make any goals to track your stash? How are you doing so far on that goal?

I liiiiiive.

But I haven’t really been knitting during my time away. The move was more involved than I thought it would be, and I turned to insatiable smut-reading as my comfort during that time. (Seriously. 2+ books a day. Most of it is tracked on my GoodReads account; I’m not owning up to all of it. Some things are best kept to ourselves, yes?) I am slowly easing back into crafting and hope to re-enter those respective worlds soon.

I hope you all had a lovely spring and summer, kittens. What have you been working on?
