    I've come to the conclusion that collecting yarn, and using yarn are two entirely separate hobbies.

    I’m going to go ahead and post my score now, so I don’t forget to do it later. I used up partial skeins for a small lap blanket for the dog. It’s not done but I blew through a number of leftovers.

        I suppose I should get this out of the way now. I used up a skein finishing the Hexagon Blanket, another on a scarf and one more on a WIP Cardigan for Mom. I received a Christmas box from my yarn angel of 19. What a way to start off a new year!

        WTD -32

          Fisherwife ~ A dear friend who owned a LYS. She was forced to close due to health concerns about 6 years ago. When she closed the store, she took all the inventory home with her. We met in a Facebook group about 2 years ago and our friendship has blossomed. We still haven't met in person, but we video chat a couple times a week. I was supposed to visit this summer, but...2020. She sends me a box of goodies every couple of months. I of course, cover the postage, but the yarn is a gift.

          crosstitchlinda ~ you're in the clear!

          I'm starting the week out on a good note! I did finish spinning a small skein of handspun which is my first fiber ever cleaned, carded, and spun from a fleece I bought. The fleece is from a bfl/merino cross sheep. I don't know much about fleeces but I like the yarn I got. I spun up a two ply fingering weight and ended up with 107 yards in 32 grams. I've already started knitting it into a Headband with a Twist and was hoping I could finish it today but there's no way. I also finished a pair of DRK Everyday socks using up a bunch of minis from stash.

          Properly practiced, knitting soothes the troubled spirit, and it doesn't hurt the untroubled spirit either.

              I used none and received none so I'm starting the year with zero!!


                I was on a roll finishing up some wips earlier this week.

                A Bandana Cowl used up 2 skeins, Socks & Memory Squares used up 1 skein, some crazy hot pads used up 4 partialskeins, and the 9patch calendar 'ghan used up 2 full skeins as well.

                I also completed a stash inventory yesterday, and found 1 skein plus a bag of similar partials (which I'll just count as 1 skein) that I'm giving away.

                Therefore, my total this week is +18
