Yarn Diet 2012 Beginning Numbers!

So, I'm serious about this yarn diet!  I made sure I had all my yarn entered into my Ravelry stash and then I used their export to Excel function.  Watch out when I get going in Excel.  I'm serious, I'm an engineer.  I'm not counting any yarn as used or any portion of it as used until the project is completed.

*Deep Breath*
I have:
Total Yards:  52,387 yards (47,903.3 meters)
Total Kilograms (yes, kilograms):  19.323


over 40,000 yards of that yarn have a pattern picked out/bought
over 10,000 yards I am currently working with (Debbie Bliss Ripple, Knit Vest, a couple snoozed projects, etc)

I have excluded my Stylecraft leftovers.  I never entered it into my Raverly stash and I don't have a scale to weigh how much I have left.  The only project I am currently using it for is my Gram's Lucy Bag, which I'm trying to finish for tomorrow (her birthday party).

I didn't realize how bad I got.  I get so many ideas an I get the yarn and pattern for the idea and I can do them fast enough.

I'm not sure how often I'll update on this yet, weekly is too often, maybe monthly.

Is yours this bad?

Sorry no pictures again, let me see what I can come up with....

a finished blanket always makes me smile :-)


  1. Yes ! mine is almost as bad...LOL. I have a box of just baby yarn and today sorted it all and have patterns picked out for almost all of it :). (first grand babies are due this year) I too am on a yarn diet ! and like all diets... this is sooooo hard ! good luck with your's!

  2. I cannot say I will not buy more yarn.. even though I shouldn't. :-)

    ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  3. I have a tote full of yarn... my problem is never using up my leftovers. I should make some sort of scrappy afghan to use it up, but I get so picky about color combos.

  4. Agree with Jennifer...the yarn color are lovely.
