    Knitting not only relaxes me, it also brings a feeling of being at home.

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

    I finished off a ball of cotton in a washcloth and purchased a cake for the test knit, so I am null for the week.

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

              Working on some projects, I didn't finish any balls or skeins.


                I made some small stuff but didn’t finish any skeins this week. I would be willing to bet I’m shooting the moon this week. I have no idea how to start next week’s post, so someone will have to help me. Bought 13 balls of Paton’s Grace because Michael’s is phasing out that yarn and I use it for a number of wonderful projects. A friend gave me a ball of coboo this week, too.

                  Don't worry, it's super easy. This week was my first week and I was intimidated. Char suggested to just copy the previous week and change the dates, which is what I did. Piece of cake!

                  Yes, it is very easy to do the totals. I did it for the first time a week or two ago.

                  PS: I thought I'd be the one shooting the moon this week

                I received a box of beautiful yarn for Christmas crafting from a yarn angel and only completely used up one skein although I got several others mighty close. So I'm at -12 for the week.

                  I actually did some knitting this week, which is amazing since I was a little glued to my new to me spinning wheel. SQUEEEEE! So, I bought a couple of cute cheap skeins of yarn at my local bargain outlet to make baby hats, just to try it. They started selling some selloffs from Crafty, I believe. Anyway, didn't quite use up all of the sock yarn on the pair, so will have to try to make a square on my long-term sock blanket. I also like to save a little for repairs. Anyway, I am WTD -3, YTD +8.

                    I didn’t finish anything last week, but acquired 9 skeins from my mom.

                    Knitting is happening here! ❤️

                      Didn't use up anything (but also didn't buy the lovely fiber in a LYS I found... ); decided to face my fears and try knitting socks with my thick-thin handspun, guessing at the gauge and come what may--it's not like I'm ever going to use up all my handspun. So no change from last week

                      +2 WTD, +4 YTD
