Episode 85: Stash goals, Q1

This week Gayle and I recorded in a different location and there might be a few spots in the recording where you can hear the whirr of the local surfboard business. Just a little local flavor as you can't go very far in Santa Cruz without passing a surf shop, or a taqueria, or a yoga studio. Sometimes all three in our casual beach town. :)

We discuss the first quarter (Q1) of our #loveyourstash movement. We met our goals and (surprisingly?) stayed with it. For me at least, who dislikes anything that smacks of obligation knitting. Fortunately, my goals didn't involve knitting or finishing of any specific project so perhaps that helped make it workable. Congrats to all of you who are moving towards a stash you can live with and love.

Our second quarter (Q2) threads are open and you can post a goal in the "goals" thread, and chat about all things stash in the "chat" thread. Remember, to #loveyourstash means different things to different folks. For some it means owning less yarn, while for others it means having a plan for your yarn. However you choose to stash, moving towards a well-curated stash that fits your storage, budget, and knitting style is a workable goal with the support of friends. Remember to use the hashtags #yarniacs and #loveyourstash for your social media needs so that we can all find what you are doing and support each other towards loving the stash!
