Yarn Report - Week Ending 11/1/13

I was weak last week and ordered two sweater quantities of yarn. The first order was a result of reading about everyone's yarn purchases at Rhinebeck the previous weekend. Everyone was raving about the cormo yarn they bought, or that they wished they had bought. Of course I had to find out what all the fuss was about, so I ordered 7 skeins.

After seeing Jill's Capra swatch for the Dianthe sweater, I decided I couldn't hold off ordering any longer. I still need to swatch but otherwise I'm ready for our informal Dianthe knit-along in January. 

I also received one skein from the Woolen Rabbit yarn club. Sorry I didn't get a picture of it, but it's grey also. Guess I'm on a grey kick at the moment. 

Used this Week: 0 skein
Used since August: 7 skein

Added this Week: 22 skeins
Added since August: 94 skeins

Net Used since August: -87 skeins (wow, what a sobering number!)

No more yarn buying (planned) this year except for maybe the Eat.Sleep.Knit Black Friday sale.

I'm thinking about that knit along. At least you're buying yarn for specific projects. I think that's a good thing!
