August – December 2016 stash in/out

So this won’t be completely accurate since I got some partial skeins with no yardage, but it will at least give me a better idea of stash in vs. stash out.

2016 stash in: (August-December)

7095.2 yards

2016 stash out: (August-December)

4161.9 yards

For a net gain of: 2933.3 yards

If you want to get picky, I received/did not buy 2169 yards of yarn, which brings the total gain down to 764.3 yards. I like to count it anyway as it is, quite frankly, stash.
