Jane would like to take this moment to issue the following retraction: Peter Vincent does not spend the entirety of Fright Night drunk on Mimosas. He drinks Midori. Hence, the green and black yarn. If he drank Mimosas, the yarn would be orange. Jane obviously needs drink something other than vodka and soda for once when it comes to cocktails.

Stash Dive

Thought-provoking threads on Ravelry
Flash Your Stash 2012
How do I cull my stash?!?!?

Stash defined:
Yarn not being used for a project being actively worked on + UFOs + FYUs

What creates stash?
Failure, gifts, free-shipping minimums, the “I’m not buying yarn”/”I bought yarn after all” cycle

How do we destash and/or minimize stash accumulation?  
Personal challenges, Donations, Free boxes, Selling on eBay

Is there a healthy level of stash?
“I’m OK.  You’re OK.”
If it feels good, it’s cool.  If it feels burdensome, it’s a problem.

  1. I love your podcast – very clever and funny and comfortable. It feels like we are all sitting around a table together knitting, laughing and enjoying each other’s company. Keep up the good work!
