Since the end of April when I last posted an update, I have downsized pretty admirably. In addition to finally knitting up some cotton and silk that have been lurking for over a year now, I’ve removed a fair amount of yarn that I know I just won’t use. Some of it isn’t great quality, but most of it is perfectly lovely and just not my style. My ongoing tally of skeins in and skeins out is here, on a Ravelry project tracking page.
Mohair (so much mohair!?!), chunky yarn that isn’t Lopi, novelty yarns with sparkles or extra threads… These are things that look nice as yarn, or look like fun to a younger or beginning knitter, or are rejects from someone else’s stash that I ended up adopting but I will never actually use. Most of this stuff has been around for so long that I have no idea where it even came from or what its label said (when it had a label). I’ve definitely had some of it for more than four addresses, perhaps even longer than that. There are plenty of things in my stash that I will use and I am excited to work with, but to these hangers-on, I say good riddance!
