2023 Stashbusting MAL Guidelines

Everyone starts at zero - Whether you join at the beginning of the year or mid-year.
All yarn in your stash counts. 
Skeins counts as +2
Partials are considered a ball & count as +1 point when you use it up.
Points are rewarded with no regard as to how the yarn leaves your stash (projects, gifts, donations, trash, the dog ate it.)

Using partial skeins - When a partial skein is used, earn +1pt. When the remainder of the skein is used(which is now referred to as a “ball”), earn the other point. +1
Adding to stash - Whatever form new yarn comes in (skein, hank, ball, cake, etc.), it’s a skein added to the stash with a -2 point value. Gifted or donated partials add to the stash have a -1 point value.
Spinners - Use your own discretion when adding spun skeins to your stash.

General Rules:

  • A new thread will be added each week to post scores.
  • Please post your scores by midnight on Saturday, so that the scorekeeper can pick them up. The scorekeeper will be tallying the scores and posting them on Sunday.
  • Please make your score easy to be seen. Large numbers and pretty colors really help.

Weekly Scores

  • First (gold), second (silver) and third (bronze) will be noted on the scorekeeping list on Sunday, along with all the other scores.
  • If you have the largest negative total, you will receive the “Shoot the Moon” award. :rocket:
  • The “Shoot the Moon” winner from the previous week will be responsible for posting the scores the following week. Year-To-Date scores will be tallied & posted by @crosstitchlinda monthly.
  • NOTE: If the “Shoot the Moon” winner is not available to post the scores, please contact @crosstitchlinda as early as possible so that scores can be posted in a timely manner.
  • The scorekeeper should post by end of day, Sunday.

This is an on-going MAL. Feel free to join at any time!

Remember, this is just a way to keep us mindful to use our stash before buying more.

I do hope you’ll join us!
