Between September 1st this year and the end of February 2017 the challenge is to knit up your entire stash! I have decided to take up the challenge, in spirit at least. My declared opening stash yardage was 38,086 yards, just over 21 and a half miles, or coincidentally roughly the distance from my home to my place of work as the crow flies!!
While the idea is to decrease (or eliminate!) the stash, any yarn acquisitions don't come with a penalty so in theory it would be possible to work through the entire stash as of September 1st and still end up with more than one started with. However, since my Knitmeter tells me I have knitted over 24,000 yards in the last 12 months, I don't actually have enough stash at current rate of knitting to last me 18 months anyway. If I'm not going to run out and have to stop knitting (NOOOOOO!!!!!) there will have to be acquisitions into my stash.
So far I've knitted my way through over 5000 yards since the start of the challenge. Onwards and downwards......!
