What to do in an economic downturn?

That's easy: crochet through your stash. ALL people who knit or crochet develop a yarn addiction. We go to sales even though we have enough yarn. We buy yarn that looks lovely even though we have no project in mind for it. We buy too much of a yarn and have hanks left over. Anyway you look at it, you always have a stash. Most yarn people have a stash that exceeds their life expectancy. I certainly do.

So, to help save money I can go through my stash and use it up. That will take care of presents (I'm getting good enough now that they don't look like they were made by a 4 year old) and it will stop me from shopping.

So, here's to stashes and using them up and giving handmade gifts.
