Post your score for the week - 12/27/2020 - 01/02/2021
I’m going to go ahead and post my score now, so I don’t forget to do it later. I used up partial skeins for a small lap blanket for the dog. It’s not done but I blew through a number of leftovers.
nothing used, nothing gained.
please don’t count fabric ok?
I suppose I should get this out of the way now. I used up a skein finishing the Hexagon Blanket, another on a scarf and one more on a WIP Cardigan for Mom. I received a Christmas box from my yarn angel of 19. What a way to start off a new year!
You keep talking about a yarn angel. Is this a mystery person? Do you guys swap or what? I don’t think I want one, but I’m curious.
Oh, do you mean I won’t be shooting the moon this week??
@Fisherwife ~ A dear friend who owned a LYS. She was forced to close due to health concerns about 6 years ago. When she closed the store, she took all the inventory home with her. We met in a Facebook group about 2 years ago and our friendship has blossomed. We still haven’t met in person, but we video chat a couple times a week. I was supposed to visit this summer, but…2020. She sends me a box of goodies every couple of months. I of course, cover the postage, but the yarn is a gift.
@crosstitchlinda ~ you’re in the clear!
No FO this week, although I knitted everyday. Hope for better result next week
I’m starting the week out on a good note! I did finish spinning a small skein of handspun which is my first fiber ever cleaned, carded, and spun from a fleece I bought. The fleece is from a bfl/merino cross sheep. I don’t know much about fleeces but I like the yarn I got. I spun up a two ply fingering weight and ended up with 107 yards in 32 grams. I’ve already started knitting it into a Headband with a Twist and was hoping I could finish it today but there’s no way. I also finished a pair of DRK Everyday socks using up a bunch of minis from stash.
WTD +10, YTD +10
I finished a cowl. A scarf and a pair of socks (+7), Received 6 skeins of yarn (-12)
[SIZE=16px]WTD = - 7[/SIZE]
I used 3 skeins of yarn +6 and received 10 skeins -20 total for the week -14
[SIZE=22px]wtd -14 ytd -14[/SIZE]
I used none and received none so I’m starting the year with zero!!
Love your handspun, and those socks are very pretty too !
I was on a roll finishing up some wips earlier this week.
A Bandana Cowl used up 2 skeins, Socks & Memory Squares used up 1 skein, some crazy hot pads used up 4 partialskeins, and the 9patch calendar 'ghan used up 2 full skeins as well.
I also completed a stash inventory yesterday, and found 1 skein plus a bag of similar partials (which I’ll just count as 1 skein) that I’m giving away.
[SIZE=18px]Therefore, my total this week is +18[/SIZE]
