Mid August? Again, seems impossible how quickly the months fly by. Diva Girl has been back to school for a week and in a week we take College Girl back to college. I would wish the days to slow down, but I know they won’t. OK, on to confession.
Stash Confession as of August 15th:
72,561 yards and 411 skeins
Yardage Knit: 508 yards and 3 skeins
Yardage Bought: 0 yards and 0 skeins!!!! But I have been tempted. Or more so, requests for doggie sweaters have been made and I need 3 skeins of yarn to cover the colors needed. Good thing WEBs has a great price on what I want.
Still sewing a bunch, so the yardage total thrills me. I guess I am finding a balance between the two.
Year to Date
Yardage Knit: 8226 yards and 38 skeins
Yardage Donated/Sold: 930 yards and 8 skeins
Yardage Bought: 5858 yards and 28 skeins
Yardage Acquired: 463 yards and 1 skein
Finishes/Progress so far?
- Baby sweater done, see #4 on next list.
- Baby Blanket started.
- More bags.
- More burp cloths.
- Dryer balls
2nd time I have knit this pattern.
I used leftover wools for the balls, and a nylon trouser sock (left single by the washer or dryer) and some Berroco Vintage leftovers, to contain them in the wash.
August Goals so far:
- Finish Sewanee, um, can you say, didn’t even touch it?
- Cast on a shawl for my mom from a friend’s pattern. Um, haven’t even bought the pattern yet.
- Work on that Cable Shawl! Yeah, no.
- Start a baby
vest or blanketfor a baby shower for August 9th. Well, done, but it was a baby sweater instead.
At this point I am not sweating the goals. If I achieve them great, if not, no biggie. As long as I am creating something, I’m good. Now, if you are in town tomorrow, head to Franklin Street for the Bazaar, you’re running out of opportunities! Only 7 more weeks left.
