It's January 1 and I am starting my SIXTH year of Cold Sheeping. I swear my stash has gotten smaller, but it would be hard to tell overall because I didn't start out with a very accurate record. I thought I started out with a pretty clear picture of the stash last year, but packing up the sewing room unearthed some MAJOR amounts of unrecorded yarn. So, five years later, I think I can honestly say that all yarn has been accounted for because I have no idea where else it could be lurking.
So, I am starting the year with:
949.29 balls of yarn
199,734.1 yards of yarn
Totally scary numbers--but in the last 5 years of Cold Sheeping, I have used up:
439.99 balls of yarn
83,483.9 yards of yarn
Also rather amazing numbers, really. I didn't keep a record of "reward" or "whoops" or even "allowed" purchases, but I'm sort of guessing there has still been a substantial stash decrease. Which means the stash was COMPLETELY insane 5 years ago, and since it is presumably smaller now, then my stash is currently NOT completely insane, right?
