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

    My Christmas yarn order came this week from Knit Picks. I have 15 skeins of yarn for -30 and nothing finished. This yarn will become four adult pairs of colorwork mittens, one baby size color work mittens, and three hats....if I can manage to get it all done. I started the first pair tonight and I am loving them. Colorwork is truly magical.

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

      I'm drooling over the color of the yarn you received. Your colorwork mittens are beautiful.

      This is beautiful yarn. Totally worth -30.
      And your project...is amazing.

    This was a good week, as I made progress on completing some WIP’s. Especially a lace wrap that took forever! I didn’t purchase any yarn, completed two scarves and the lace wrap.

      I finished one skein this week for

      WTD +2

      YTD +188

      Next week however, I may be over the moon. DIL is destashing to me (I think a flat rate box, not sure which size) so since I was having a lot come in I ordered some cascade superwash to make more 1898 hats.

          Hooray, I finished something this week, 3 years in the making, my Scraptacular Hexagon Afghan. Used up +3 this week, but finished 2 half skeins (115gm) of handspun this week (although the useability is questionable, lol) that puts me at +1 for the week, and 0 for YTD.
