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

    I completed a hat/scarf set (+4) and a shawl (+2), and received 2 beautiful balls of yarn (+4) as a prize in the Charity Hat make along ( thank you, MrsDanielleWilson! 😊)

    WTD = +2

          I completely used one skein of Holstgarn Supersoft for my Slipstravaganza MKAL this week. I also got 6 skeins of mohair lace for an upcoming sweater project. I can already tell Advent is going to be a time of me going backwards a lot of points. Also, I got a promotion at work and all I want to do is buy yarn now.

            Shauna825 Life things first - congratulations on that promotion, they wouldn't have given it to you if they didn't have confidence in you. A few nerves in the beginning are normal and they keep you on your toes so go do your best!

            I hadn't heard of Holstgarn yarn so took a look and am intrigued. I might be trying it out - I like to buy yarn too! Probably way too much though.

            pinesprairie and Char thank you!

            pinesprairie I do appreciate your confidence. I know this is true but I always have a little doubt until I actually do the thing. I have had good leaders and I think I can take the best of each one and become my own leader. Holstgarn is a nice affordable yarn. I have used their Coast (cotton and wool) with good success. Now I'm using their Supersoft. It is non-superwash and therefore a bit rustic. I hear it really softens and plumps with washing so I'm looking forward to that.

          I used up quite a few balls this week but I also won a prize in the hat MAL. Talk about a good week! 😁

                      “It is a queer thing. In a time of great need, when powerful leadership is demanded, the people—confused and excited—hear only the strident voices of the audacious, and refuse to listen to the voice of wisdom which, being wise, is temperate.”
