      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:

      https://fiberkind.com/forum/communit...2020#post68295

      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!
      Knitting is happening here! ❤️

          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.
