    I finished a shawl that used 50g skeins of yarn, completely used up two of the skeins and partially used up another four for a total of 8 point. Then I spun a 4oz braid of fiber into a light fingering weight yarn for -2 points.

    Well, I had to edit since my KnitCrate box showed up today. I get the sock crate so one skein of fingering weight sock yarn was added to my stash. My totals have been adjusted.

    WTD +4 YTD +4

      Char I have this and a purple one and I'm going to go look for two more fibers that would work in a fade so I can knit up a handspun So Faded sweater. It will be my first handspun sweater so I'm excited about that.

      I think the pink is a gorgeous color and I think fades are so interesting. I'll be watching for it!

          pinesprairie ~ I'm just along for the ride. My yarn angel keeps me in the negative numbers. I always think twice when I see yarn I want to buy because of this challenge!

          TexasPurl Hmmm, I will have to reconsider keeping that logic in mind. I'd probably think thrice and buy it anyway.

            I did buy some yarn to finish some projects, but Mom’s shopping at my house made that a little better.

            Where I am VERY proud is I found some yarn I WANTED (Ohhhhh pretty). And it was on sale (you don’t want to know how many skeins). And I had my dear husbands go ahead (to spend a lot more than that!!).... and I didn’t buy any.

            WTD -8; YTD -288
            Knitting is happening here! ❤️

              I changed to a new color on the border of my Sparkle Patriot Shawl, finishing off the previous color, for +2. I also finished off a leftover partial ball in a scrap project, +1.
