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........
