My stash to be exact. New year, new goals. I still feel like many of last year's goals for me are continuing to be my focus, not just the stash one. But let's tackle that stash one today.
I'm continuing with my destash efforts. That money has helped pay for the three clubs I've signed up for for the year- Woolgirl, Rockin' Sock Club, and Plucky Classics. I'm hoping these three clubs will account for most of my stash acquisition, give or take a few well-thought out Blue Moon purchases (Stitches West, Sock Camp) and some others from my favorite dealers, Woolgirl, Purlescence Yarns, and Plucky. To keep track of that, I've joined the Stashdown Challenge with my Yarn Snob friends on Ravelry! So far, so good!
I'm also trying to take more photos of my stash....a little reminder for me. So let's start with the incoming stash this week (all 2009 purchases, so I'm still in the clear this month!).
Woolgirl's kits always amaze me! I'm always thinking the new one is my favorite! A Yarnissima pattern (and two more awesome patterns by Christina Bain), a gorgeous skein of Juliet yarn from Yarn Love, a PINK!!! Namaste buddy case (an exclusive colorway!!! love love love!!), and other sweet goody treats!
The new Plucky Classics shipment. Love. Love. Love.
And then there was the Blue Moon New Year's Eve Rare Gems event! These beauties....wow!!! So glad I indulged a bit (you know I don't need anymore STR!).
From all the gorgeous Rare Gems I've seen on Ravelry this week from this event, wow! I'm hoping the leftovers will be at Stitches West....a little motivation for me to cast on with one of these soon!
It is definitely time to fall in love with my stash!
