One Sleeve Done

Last night I finished one sleeve on the Pixelated Pullover.

The picture is kinda lopsided . . I don’t think the sweater is. 

Today I’m canning Meatballs with Turnip Gravy and by the time I make the meatballs, and the gravy and get it all canned, that’s a long process so I doubt I’ll get the 2nd sleeve done today but hopefully tonight I’ll get some progress made on it.

Yarn Report – Week 9, 2015

This is the last of the crazy yarn reports where I bought lots of yarn. Even though an unnamed friend tried to talk me into buying yarn this week  .. I didn’t do it. What came in today is what was ordered several weeks ago and held til I got home from MO.

There was the Shepherd’s Wool that I ordered for Vince. Since I got blue then brown (he decided on the blue), that’s 26 skeins. There’s 12 skeins for Hedgerow. I’m counting the yarn for Leftovers Cowl as 6 skeins. Not sure how to count those “collections” and really, all that matters is that when I use it, I count it as the same thing as when I added it. I believe that comes to 48 skeins in. Darn! I still think I can end up in the black. Ten months. That’s just a little over 10 skeins per month so long as I don’t add anything else. That’s a tall order but I can do it.

I didn’t finish anything this week so that’s nothing to count as used.

Used this week: 0 skeins
Used since 1/1/2015: 29 skeins
Added this week: 48 skeins
Added since 1/1/21015: 133 skeins
Net Used since 1/1/2015: 104 skeins  (red means I’ve added more than I’ve used).

On the Needles – February 27, 2015

Mostly what I’ve worked on this week is my Pixelated Pullover. I’ve been able to try it on and I love it! This is the first large stranded colorwork project I’ve done and I struggled at firs. My stranded work got better as I did more of it. After a good blocking, I think it will look great. I’m hoping to get the sleeves done this week and be able to wear it while it’s still cold. The neckband was finished after the photo was taken so all I have left to get done are the sleeves.

You can’t tell in the photo but the dark is a deep purple and the turquoise at the top and bottom is a vivid, bright shade. It looks kinda washed out in my late night photo.
