Yarn Report - Week Ending 11/15/13

I missed last week's post because I was on vacation. There has been no new yarn to report. We were so busy on vacation that I didn't even visit a yarn store! I think that's a first for me.

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

Added this Week: 0 skeins
Added since August: 94 skeins

Net Used since August: -87 skeins

I still only plan on buying yarn for the Eat.Sleep.Knit Black Friday sale. ESK has not officially said they'll be having it this year though. Just in case there is a sale, I've been going through my Ravelry queue/favorites and making a list of yarn for the projects that need yarn.

Over the last two weeks I have been going through my entire Ravelry favorites list and have deleted patterns that I don't like as much or know I'll never make. When I started I had over 1500 patterns favorited (any surprise why my blog name is InfinityQuilter / Knitter!?!?). Now the list has been slashed down to just over 450!

My goal for the rest of the year and going forward is to be more selective about what I put in my favorites. I'm also not going to get caught up in the hype when a new pattern comes out. I'll put the pattern in my favorites first and wait a couple weeks to see if I still like it before buying.

I've been doing the same thing with my favorites. The ones that I'm keeping, I'm adding tags so I can find them easier. I hope not to buy more unless there's a sale at ESK but there are a few skeins arriving next week that I ordered to make gifts. Nothing like waiting til the last minute.

I forgot about Black Friday!!! Something to look forward to after the turkey.
