We’ve pretty much all been there: for a while you keep careful track of your stash—probably on Ravelry—and then slowly it slips away from you, and you have no idea what you’ve got anymore. I just re-cataloged my entire stash, and in this episode talk about what I learned from it.
For the technique segment at the end, I explain several ways to measure and keep track of partial skeins.
Mentioned in this episode:

- Calculating remaining yardage in a partial skein: Divide the number of yards in a full skein (see ball band) by the number of grams in a full skein, and multiply that result times the number of grams you have left. The result is how many yards you have left.
