Stashdown 2017 – December progress and year round up

Another quiet month as I was busy with other things. The only yarn I managed to use up was 312 yards in a pair of colourwork mittens. I also took the opportunity to add to my fibre stash to the tune of 280g of gradient.

I just about managed to reduce my stash overall for the year, with a net reduction of yarn of 2,337.8 yards, 2,058g. Not bad going given that I have spun up 2,770g worth of fibre. For the year I totalled 16,078.8 yards or 5,238g either used in projects or donated to better causes. I start 2018 with 54,562.1 yards or 13,076g of yarn in stash and 1,680g of fibre. So enough yarn to work with for a few more years, but I might be buying more fibre.

Total monthly yarn out: 312 yards, 62g
