Yarn Report - Week Ending 7/25/14

No yarn in this week. There is a package on its way that I will record next week. Eat.Sleep.Knit had a "silk" yarn sale for the 10K members. I had asked Judy about a colorway which led her to placing an order. I felt a little guilty, so I ordered 5 skeins of Mrs. Crosby Hat Box (the same yarn I'm using on Wanderling) to make a Heathered (Ravelry link) cardigan. I should be able to record some "used" yardage next week too to help offset some of this new yarn.

Used this Week: 0 yards
Used/Destashed To Date: 5,697 yards

Added this Week: 0 yards
Added To Date: 14,315 yards

Net Used/Destashed: (8,618) yards

On the Needles - 7/25/14

I think I can, I think I can. I'm hoping to finish my Wanderling this weekend. The sleeves are to the elbows. I'm knitting both at one time so I can bind off if it gets down to the wire. Apparently my second skein has a lot more light blue mixed in because it looks kind of stripey.

On the Needles - 7/18/14

It's been a while since I posted my "On the Needles" progress. My Wanderling has grown quite a bit. I'm hoping to finish the body this weekend so I can get busy on the sleeves. I'm not sure this will get finished in time.

On the Needles - 7/4/14

Camp Loopy Project #2 has commenced. I am knitting Wanderling, a pullover knit in sportweight yarn. What was I thinking?!?!

I had to start over not once, but TWICE before I figured out why I was a stitch short on the mock cable. The mock cables is sl1, k2, psso.  I was reading it as sl1, k2tog, psso so I was short one stitch.

It also took me a while to get the increases correct. I usually knit front/back to increase where this pattern has you make 1 left/right. I couldn't remember if I had to put the needle thru the front or the back each time so I'd have to look at the stitch key and then would lose my place on the pattern. Throw in short rows too, and I was feeling like a sweater newbie. I eventually ended up writing the short row portion out in Excel. Now that the short rows are done, I am back in my comfort zone and am making some progress.

FO#8 - Barnwood Scarf

I finished my Barnwood cowl, which I turned into a scarf to use up all of both skeins. I love how this turned out. This is my Camp Loopy Project #1. The yarn is Fable Fibers - Biography in the Pool colorway. This was the first time I knit with this yarn, but it won't be my last.
