Tallying the Stash for 2015

January 1, 2015

WSKAs always my goal was to be under 40 000 yards by the end of the year, and in this I have failed.  I have not failed as spectacularly as last year, when my New Year Tally was almost 53,000 yards. The total this year, drum roll please, is 45 511 yards!  I should be down under 40 000 yards again in 4 months!  Not too bad.  The stash I bought this year was worth it, this lovely set of skeins from Western Sky Knits was scored as well as a rainbow skein set from Rain City Knits as their Cyber Monday sale.

Quebec YarnI have a number new sweaters that I am itching to get too, as well as some I need to get knitted up asap.  I have so much good knitting planned for this year, I cannot wait to get at it!

Happy New Year to Everyone, and may you have fun rolling around in the stash as it gets tossed for the annual tallying!

I don’t plan to go on any diets this year, but I do plan on following some simple guidelines.  I will be buying online, but only from a few Canadian retailers, with the dollar the way it is, and shipping, plus duties at times it is too expensive to buy from US sites.  We hope to be visiting Utah in March, and stashing up on items that are expensive in Canada, keeping in mind the lower dollar, will be in order.  My knitting group is already super excited about Olds in June, so we’re looking forward to what lovelies we will discover there.  The photo above was a random purchase from Olds, it is just labeled “Quebec Yarn”, 100% laine, but I couldn’t resist the teal, purple, green combination, and bought all the grey as a background colour.   What an exciting year I have coming up!

    Hi Anne, Not sure if you remember me but you gave me a beautiful pair of mittens years ago for commenting 🙂 I am moving away from Calgary in the near future and have a couple boxes of knitting books I would love you to have if you are interested. If so, please email me. Sonia
