Keeping Track - June 2008

Oh dear - what with the Craft Fair and then Knitting Camp, June was a bad bad month for the stash enhancement (or should I say a good good month!). Lots of yarn came into my house in June...and I'm not entirely sure July is going to be much better (oh dear...again!).

So here's the numbers:

In: 43.5 x 50g balls - double urk!
Out: 12.5 x 50g balls - not bad - all my knitting in June was done with stash yarn (as opposed to new yarn!)

YTD: +81.5 x 50g balls - sigh... that's enough to keep me going for about 7 months, assuming I knit about 10-12 balls each month. As the Yarn Harlot says - planning for retirement, planning for retirement!

ha ha. Knowing the German yarn is coming in this month, you are going to have to knit like the wind to get ahead!!!

You are very good to even contemplate keeping track of the ins. I've just stuffed another 20 balls into one of my infinitely larger on the inside than the outside bins*, so that I don't have to confront my purchasing proclivities.
*Or maybe the wool's just squishy.

I've heard this is the problem with youth today, not enough planning for retirement. So good for you, Rose Red!

I'm much much too scared to even try to add up the amount of yarn which has entered my house in the last six weeks - let alone this year!!

You are very brave. you are my heroine - you are the wiiiiinnndnddd beneeeeaaatthhh myyyyy wiiiings!

That's what I'm doing - I'm planning for retirement!!!!

Yay for yarn, you can never have too much!

And I just wanted to say - I love the Lady Eleanor - one day I will buy the pattern and learn entrelac. But until then, I look forward to seeing yours.
