      Welcome Joanna! We are glad to have you here at FiberKind.

      Basically, you start at zero. Every week, there will be a new thread in this Stashbuster section. Here is this week's thread:


      Because you are starting today, your score is zero. Every time you acquire a full skein (bought, donated, inherited) it is a -2 points. Every skein used is a +2 points.

      You can claim "partial skeins" one time - so if you make a hat, and only use a half a skein, you count +1 then when you finish the skein it is a +1. Same for the acquiring skeins.

      I personally find it easier to keep track of when I just add / subtract "full skeins" so I don't have to remember if my partial skein has been counted or not.

      It is a fun thing. Glad to have you here!
      Quilting is happening here! ❤️

        Welcome vulcanprincess This group has really helped me bust my stash.


          Welcome. Hope you are encouraged to work through your stash.

          I have my good weeks and bad weeks with tackling mine. This is at least helping me to 'see' if I am making some type of progress during the year.
          Also helps me to know if I really want/need to buy that pretty skein calling my name at the local LYS.
          “It is a queer thing. In a time of great need, when powerful leadership is demanded, the people—confused and excited—hear only the strident voices of the audacious, and refuse to listen to the voice of wisdom which, being wise, is temperate.”
