Well, whatever astounding stash progress I was making came to a screeching halt for March.  For the month I used:

Skeins of yarn:   8.25
Yards of yarn:  966.25
yards of fabric:  0

So now with the first quarter gone, I have knit 4,845.3 yards of yarn.  If I can do that each quarter, I'll finish the year at 19,381.2 yards for the year--which would still be my highest year since I started tracking.  That could still be exciting.

Every once in a while I think of being a "normal" knitter--someone who doesn't worry about how many yards or projects in a year, but if there is such a knitter, I haven't met him or her.  Right now I just want to use the fabulous yarn I have--the whole 10 year supply--and make pretty things with it, and having it take up LESS room and weigh on my mind a bit less would be really nice.  Maybe once I'm down to "just" a 5 year yarn supply, I'll look at things differently........

Okay, you've suffered a back injury, remodeled the sewing room, and emerged victorious against evil on the field of political battle. And you've *also* found time to knit 8 skeins of yarn? Really, not bad at all.

No beating yourself up- think about how nice it will be to have your beautiful new sewing room, and more time to knit this month. :)

We need to meet because I am one of those that has never given a thought to how many projects I knit in a year or how many yards of yarn I use. In fact, I didn't realize people did that, especially the latter,till I became more involved with online knitters' blogs and Ravelry. Has that changed what I do? Nope. I'm still that person that knits on into oblivion. :-)
