Yarn Report – Week 42, 2013

This week, I have the world’s best excuses for every single purchase!  You’re going to be so proud of me!  :)

Yarn Added

Yarn Added

The three blueish green skeins are the Alpaca with a Twist yarn that I ordered for the Knit Along that starts November 1.  If I want to do the Knit Along and I do, then I had to order the yarn.  Three skeins of Baby Twist, which is DK weight and I don’t have DK weight in my stash.

There are three skeins of green and three skeins of gray that are Angel by Debbie Bliss.  I could blame Denise but I won’t . . even though she told me about a website that had this yarn on sale.  I’m still working on getting the perfect yarn for my Art Deco project.

The reddish in the top right . . that’s a skein of Wollmeise Pure from the Fall Giftables Club with The Loopy Ewe.  I signed up for that months ago and was committed.  This was the last month of that club so no more additions from that.

On the used side of this equation, I finished a bunny and I’m guessing that between the peach, orange, brown and tan yarns, I used one skein and I finished a skein on the Guernsey Wrap so that’s 2 skeins used.

Used this Week:  2 skeins
Used since mid-August: 10.75 skeins
Added this week:  10 skeins
Added since mid-August: 133 skeins
Net Used since mid-August : 122.25 skeins
  (Red means I’m in the hole so instead of using this much yarn, I’ve added a net of this much yarn!)

I think next week is going to be a week with zero yarn added!

    Lovely yarn! The Pure looks kind of lonely though.

  2. 4

    OK, I finally caved. Bought the pattern for Guernsey Wrap. After reading your progress for the past month, I have fallen in love with this project – I’ve always loved the fisherman-style cables & stitches! And, lucky me, I have just the right yarn and enough yardage! Should make a lovely Christmas gift for a daughter :D
