The Ham

After getting all the attention yesterday, Theo was in place early today and just begging for some tummy rubsThe ham.

The napkins are trimmed, washed, and ironed, and three sets of six napkins each are ready for Monday's "Soup Night" salsa tasting
and I have used my "Martha" quotient for the month. Too bad, as Andy's birthday present clothes still aren't done.....

The scarf, however, being intended for no one in particular and having no deadline at all is getting lots of attention
and may be done before the month is half over.

I'm using some yarn that I have had in my stash for several years, and after I used up the first skein, I went to the bag and pulled out this
I have had yarn break in a few places because I wound it too tightly, but this wasn't tight. It's a Patons superwash & it has been discontinued for a while & maybe this is why it was discontinued. I noticed on the first skein that there were some places where strands had broken, but I have never seen anything this bad. What dreadful stuff!

So the big question is, do I get credit toward my total this year for crappy yarn that I throw away?

well, it won't be in your stash any more, will it? I think you get yarn karma points for that.

What on earth happened???

But yeah, what Dana says: it's no longer in your stash, so add it to the total of "Removed from Stash" through knitting or otherwise :-)

Absolutely count it! Your stash shrinks by one, whether you knit it, give it away, trash it or eat it. (Ick. Don't eat it. ;-) )

I agree. If it's gone from stash, count it!

Of course you count it. = )
Sorry about the lack of non commenting lately. Life has just been well......

I love that fabric! I have some in my stash too. I never really thought about making napkins. How big do you make them?

Absolutely count it. It's no longer in your stash and you did do something with it.
Okay what you did was throw it away, but stilll... that's doing something!

Definitely! You have no control over the quality of yarn (esp. Patons - I am disappointed!) - pitch that yarn and then count it as used up!
