Know What I Need?

50-yard balls of yarn.

My main motivation in knitting has become to change the stash progress tally.

End up with a sweater? Fine. Finish some socks? Whatever. Use up another ball of yarn? Whoo hoo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I realize that bigger balls of yarn are accounted for by the total yards used and that I am still using up stash which was SUPPOSED to be the idea, but it takes SO much longer to knit up 200-400 yards of yarn than say, 80, so I don't get to change the tally as often. And THAT has become my main focus this year. Did you see how close I am to 50 balls???????

This is what happens when "Type A" personalities knit.

Now I'm going to go find the project with the least yarn left on the skein......
