Well, at least this week I can claim victory since I added nothing to the stash this week. OK, to be honest, I would have if we had not had snow overnight on Tuesday, which made all the knitters loathe to come out to knit on Wednesday morning. So I didn’t get to spend my birthday gift certificate! Oh well, it will wait until this week’s knitting.
Since I am not enhancing the stash I thought I would at least report on the state of the stash so far this month.
Stash On Hand: 68,123 yards 381 skeins
Knit: 1180 Yards 6 skeins
Purchased: 819 Yards 4 skeins
Looks as if I am ahead so far this month. Maybe I won’t go too far to the negative after this week. Of course the answer to that is to knit up a storm!!! And I would have really knit up a storm on Saturday if it wasn’t for the conditions! I had 6+ hours of time to sit and knit during the SIAC dive meet yesterday. Except it was hot, steamy, humid, damp, hot, sweaty, hot, muggy, and hot in the natatorium!!! It just was not the place to be knitting with wool yarn. I tired, but gave up after stopping frequently to fan myself. It was so damp the paper I was fanning with was as limp as I was becoming. But the girl placed 6 out of 11 divers, so we were very happy to be there, sweaty and hot as
we, I, was.
Charity Knitting today is this pattern, using up leftovers of Valley Yarn DK Superwash yarns. I have been through lots of this stuff! And will continue to use up what I have, and likely buy more as I need. Perfect for baby stuff, and even for older peeps!
So, what has enhanced your stash this week? Yarn, fiber, fabric, needles? Do tell, Cooper is dying to know!
Exit question: Does anyone use a silicon keyboard cover? I am considering getting one for my new Mac Book Pro and just wanted some feedback on them. I am going a little uber crazy buying things to protect it. I have a new clip on case and screen protector, I figure a keyboard cover would give me even more protection! I am worse than a new mom. LOL! It’s just gorgeous!
