Yarn Report - Week Ending 1/3/14

Here we are at the beginning of a new year. That means we get to set out totals back to zero. I will be counting yarn as "used" only when I finish a project.  Since skein yardage varies so much depending on the weight, my totals will be measured by yards rather than number of skeins.

I had destashed two sweater quantities of Madelinetosh Erin for a total of 2880 yards out! Nothing in (yet).

Yes, you read right. I had every intention of staying away from The Loopy Ewe's  rewards and Eat.Sleep.Knit's yarnathon this year.  Then Eat.Sleep.Knit decided they would have GROUPS where each group could win additional "yards or prizes" depending on how their group does. I am part of the "RoboKnits" group. Not to mention they have a quarterly KAL (knit-along) so I felt obligated to help the team out. Even though I did buy yarn, I contained myself and will still be in the black next week!

Used this Week: 2880 yards
Used To Date: 2880 yards

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

Net Used: 2880 yards

My goal is to use at least 11,000 yards this year and hopefully end the year in the black.

I'm in the Monkey's group, but since I don't knit enough, I probably won't be playing along. :)
