On the Needles - 4/18/14

I haven't gotten much knitting done this week. We've been running to Green Bay the last couple nights to visit with my father-in-law who is in the hospital, waiting to have triple bypass surgery. He's supposed to have the surgery tomorrow so I'll probably take this along to work on while we're waiting.

The first section of the shawl is done. Once I get knitting again, I will be adding the contrast color stripes.

Yarn Report - Week Ending 4/11/14

Well, I told you there would be new yarn in this week's report, so let's get that out of the way. I bought 9 skeins of Madelinetosh Sport for the BlueSand cardigan for a total of 2,845 yards. I ordered extra so I could get the sweater boost yardage points for the Eat.Sleep.Knit yarnathon.

The colors are Dust Bowl, Gossamer, Bloomsbury, Gossamer, Dust Bowl. In the pattern, the sleeve colors are staggered with the body. The control freak in me wants everything to match, so my body and sleeves will be same color all the way across. 



I used 331 yards on the Hourglass Cowl. 

Used this Week: 331 yards
Used/Destashed To Date: 4494 yards

Added this Week: 2845 yards

On the Needles - 4/11/14

I finished the hourglass cowl earlier this week. I'm not quite ready to get back to the sleeves for Dianthe, so I cast on Cameo (Ravelry link) - a two-colored shawl. There are currently 32 picot edges. I have 18 more picots before I add the second color.

FO#6 - Hourglass Cowl

The hourglass cowl is finished. The pattern was very easy to follow and makes not one, but two great designs because it's reversible.



Yarn is Dream in Color Classy in Blue Sage.

Yarn Report - Week Ending 4/4/14

I made it 90 days without buying yarn. Then I promptly ordered my yarn for the BlueSand Cardigan. Regardless of how many days it was, I would have ordered yarn. Got some bad news at work. We were suspecting the news, but we were still hoping it wouldn't happen. Now I'm back to cold sheeping. My yarn should arrive this weekend so next week I'll be in the red. 

My yardage chart did not change in the month of March. Even though it will change in April, it hopefully will still be far less than last year's amount.



Used this Week: 0 yards
Used/Destashed To Date: 4164 yards

Added this Week: 0 yards
Added To Date: 1980 yards

Net Used/Destashed: 2184 yards
