I've been a member of the Into the Whirled Fiber Club for a while now and memberships are currently closed. I am currently unemployed, but until it comes time that I cannot pay a bill, I'm staying put and holding on to my spot.
For 2014 my goal is to spin 12 skeins. This is much more than I've spun in the past. While I was employed and making good money, I bought fiber like a fiend! I have an ample stash now and know it. What I didn't REALLY know was just how ample that stash was... 12 skeins would put a good dent in it ... it would free up a whole bin!
I figured since I can never really decide what to spin next I would choose the first January shipment from the ITW club. So I looked on the Ravelry group and searched January 2013 .... wait a minute, that's not the first shipment I got ... so I searched January 2012 ... oh that's the first shipment I got. So I now have TWO YEARS of Into the Whirled shipments ... in addition to all the other stash I purchased in the past. Wowzah!
I've always wanted to put my stash up on Ravelry, so I figured why not start with my ITW stash. Today is rainy, cold and dreary, so not the best day for photos ... but at least its done! Right now I have all of 2012 and 2 of 2013 in there and some other stuff that was in my craft room for a total of 29 entries.
I'm done for today, I still have ways to go. I kept an Excel spreadsheet of my fiber stash and it was mostly updated, except for all of the ITW club - I stopped buying fiber in 2013 when it was clear that my stash was out of control, because I had to keep going to Walmart to purchase plastic storage bins. My spreadsheet has 99 entries ...
