Keeping Track - November 2009

I admit, I've been putting off this post...but can wait no longer. Darn Bendi for having a sale (which, by the way, is still going - you've got until 11 December to make me feel better about my purchases!)

If not for 7 big balls of Bendi cotton (these are 200g balls or the equivalent of 4 regular sized balls!):
And two sock club shipments - one: Yarntini Self-Striping - totally indulgent but I couldn't help myself, her self-striping sock yarn is SO COOL!
And the other being Knitting Inspirations Summer shipment - lovely Fleece Artist Sea Wool:
Then I'd be ok this month. But of course, I am not...as usual.

In: 32 x 50g balls
Out: 10.5 x 50g balls (OMG these two numbers are exactly the same as last month!!)
YTD: 218.5 x 50g balls
I wonder if I can ensure December, at least, is yarn neutral. Or even, wonder of wonders, yarn negative!!

My haul from the Bendi sale was much bigger (OMG, just counted - 24 200g balls!). I have no idea where I am going to store it all. I think I've got buckleys of achieving yarn neutrality!

The sea wool is just the most beautiful thing, and don't you love the way Knitting Inspirations include a tea bag with every package?

yarn netural? what is this strange language that you speak? good picks on the bendi. anyway, it was sale yarn, doesnt count.

MadMad said...

Yarn neutral? Yarn negative? Love the words. And a girl can dream, right? ;)

Roxie said...

Yarn neutral? Yarn negative? This makes me nervous. What will you do if the great wool blight strikes? We NEED stash!!

Alwen said...

Someone distract her and I'll steal her Yarntini through the monitor!

Sarah said...

I'm dreading my end of year reckoning after all that holiday yarn - you give me the strength to own up :)

Lynne said...

Oh, you enabler you!

I was just thinking I'd check Bendigo's website and here you are telling me there's a sale! *yippee*

Ann said...

It's always nice to receive yarn packages. Just don't count your stash like me. Now I am off to check out Bendigo.
