The Heart Tank:
Originally had 3.75 balls of K1C2 Angora Soft. Traded 2 balls of stash yarn for 1 additional ball of Angora Soft. 3.75 + (2 - 1) = 4.75 net balls of yarn out of the stash + 1 nifty tank once it's done.
The Felted Birdhouse Purse:
Originally had 5 balls of WotA in various colors. Purchased 2 balls of Hush WotA for main body. Though this project will not use all the yarn involved, I have been inspired to knit up another leetle handbag to felt to use up the rest of the goodness. 5 - 2 = 3 net balls of yarn out of the stash + 2 gifts once completed.
Boy's Holiday Socks:
Originally had 1 skein Mountain Arts Bearfeet. This yarn is so faboo that I will most likely end up buying another skein for myself on my birthday next weekend, so it's probably a wash. 1 -1 = 0 net skeins of yarn out of the stash + 2 pairs of socks and my first pair of designed socks. I am terribly proud of how these socks are coming out, especially since I designed them while coming home on the train one afternoon.
We found the bestest place to hold the wedding ceremony, but it looks like it might be cold on an April afternoon. In order to combat this eventuality, I was thinking of knitting myself an I Do shrug. Originally possess no white yarn, so if I go through with it I'll be adding yarn to the queue. 0 - 9 = 9 net skeins of yarn added to the stash + my sanity, modesty, and warm arms. Some things just don't fit into the Stashonomics model...
