Week #2 - Stash Report

Fabric Report

I've been working on Fireworks in Prairie Park (my UFO Challenge project), but nothing I can record as "out".  My January FQ Club package came, so 3 yards in.

Here are my numbers:

~ Fabric Used this Week: 0 yards
~ Fabric Used YTD: 0 yards

~ Fabric Added this Week: 3 yards
~ Fabric Added YTD: 3 yards

~ Net Usage: -3.00

Yarn Confessional

I've been hooked on Madelinetosh yarn lately.  In December I was searching around for a specific colorway and stumbled upon Eat.Sleep.Knit, an online shop that has a "yarnathon" each year.  You can win prizes based on the number of yards of yarn you order.  Never one to turn down a challenge, I waited (impatiently) until January 1 to place my order.  This is what arrived this week.

From left to right:  Tosh DK - Mourning Dove (7 skeins) for a hoodie, Briar (to see what it really looked like, will probably be turned into a cowl), Tern (to see what it really looked like); and on the bottom, Tosh Merino Light in Blue Gingham to go along with 3 other skeins I already had for a pullover sweater.  I wound Tern so I could cast on a new cowl pattern called Winter Wonder.


A couple shops had some good sales for New Years, so I have a little bit more yarn coming.  :-(  Most of it will be used for knitting Christmas gifts.

Go to Judy’s blog and see how others did with their stashbusting this week.

Beautiful yarn - luckily I am not in to knitting. I have too many other projects to deal with right now.... but if everyone keeps showing their yarn, it mught be hard to resist.
