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

    So, I am continuing to replenish my stash, I’ve had a feeling some stores may close if there’s another lockdown. This week I received 14 balls of a beautiful gradient fingering weight from Knit Picks, “Chroma”. Completed one charity scarf.

    14 new balls - 28
    used 2 balls + 4

      I finally finished my Slipstravaganza shawl! I think it's the biggest thing I've ever knit, nearly 2,000 yards. I ended up finishing off three skeins and another three partially used for a total of 9. My KnitCrate yarn arrived for -2 so all in all 7 for the week! I've started a marled hat with some of my leftovers. I'm thinking I can get two hats out of it and it will be completely used up.

      I was bad and ordered some yarn from KnitPicks for the new Andrea Mowry sweater Stripes. But that will arrive another week.

        I only used up one skein this week

        I am thinking of ordering some more Worsted Weight yarn for the 1898 hats before the end of the year. We shall see.

          I didn’t buy yarn and I didn’t use yarn. I have been hanging out at my sewing machine.

            TexasPurl - uh oh - better stock up now. Lol

          Received my Bare yarn from Knitpicks and have it dyed up and ready (mostly). I have done some sewing, some spinning, and a little knitting on my Christmas socks, but no balls used up. I did get my yard all cleaned up this morning, though, so I am ready to go!

            Happy Mail came in. The 12 Days of Christmas advent is by Cherry Pie Cottage. I was planning to attend the DFW Fiber Fest this year before it was canceled, so when I found the colorway, I had to have it. I loved the Moon Shadow colorway when it was shown on Instagram, and my finances now allowed me to get it.

              Lucky girl! That's some beautiful yarn!

            Finally some good numbers to post! I used 1 skein on Christmas stockings & gave away 3 skeins. Next week may not be as productive.

                I finished some Christmas gifts, however no skeins used.


                  I found a crate with all the scrapghans I started this past year before we moved out here to the homestead so I need to finish my tunisian scrapghan so I can work on finishing these other ones. When I'm too stressed out to work on anything else, I can always work on an afghan.
