One WIP finished!

The chenille blanket
is finished! And yes, it does look exactly like the one I made back in November, though perhaps it's a few rows longer. The count is now 2 WIPs frogged, 2 thrown in the trash (don't worry--it was really cheap acrylic yarn), and 1 finished. And....

----drum roll please-----

I have used up 3.11 MILES of yarn so far this year!!! (It sounds SO much more impressive in miles)

Luckily, even I have the sense to not total up how many miles the entire stash would be--there are fun experiments and then there's downright insanity. Let's just say that crossing a state line would not be unthinkable and leave it at that.

Hi! I've been enjoying reading about your WIPs. I ended up taking a look at mine and I'm not far behind! What kind of "excel" thing are you doing to count/use up your stash? I can't find anything like it on the net. How interesting! Thanks for sharing.

Congrats on your FO! I have some chenille in my stash that I bought to make a toddler or baby something out of, then I started worrying about it worming or shedding and... well, that's why it's still in the stash. Hm, wonder if my son's art class could use some chenille? After all, I did give his last school a bunch of cheap acrylic yarn odds and ends a couple of years ago and the teacher was thrilled to get it.
