I’m still, slowly, working on my stash. I had a lofty goal of reducing my boxes of crochet from 12 to 6 by the end of 2018. It is the end of 2018 and I now have…drum roll please…9 boxes. While I didn’t make it to 6 boxes, the 9 boxes aren’t quite as stuffed as they once were. Not what I had hoped but a little progress. In 2018 I only purchased two skeins of yarn. This was to make a hat for my brother. And I received some yarn support for two designs that will published in 2019 by third parties. So overall, my yarn stash did decrease, just not as much as I had intended. Once again, the second half of 2018 was busy and I just did not get to crochet near as much as I had planned. Here is what I did complete in the last 6 months of 2018-
Harvest Corn Pillows
Christmas Tree Pillows
Mother Bears for donation
A potholder gift
An ear warmer headband for me.
And last, but not least, 3 more octos for donation to local NICU.
I’ll be back at stash busting in 2019. However, I think I’ll make my 2019 goal a little easier to measure. I plan to set a goal by weight rather than volume.
Happy New Year to you all. May 2019 be filled with lots of happiness and lots of crochet.

I have been trying to do the same, Darleen. I didn’t keep track like you did, but I did not buy too much new yarn (hard to resist big skeins on clearance for $2.49 each!). Anyway, the minimizing and cost-saving effort continue into 2019. I find that my creativity is challenged by being constrained by yarn on hand. That has been a good practice.
Good luck with the busting! Happy New Year and I hope 2019 brings you lots of crochet time. 🙂
