Keeping Track - February 2010

A day late, but here, and with good news too! (Finally!)

My in's this month - 1 x 50g ball of Regia Kaffe Fassett sock yarn - a spare for my Babette blanket, and 1 x 100g skein of lovely handspun from Donni - do check out her shop Moggy and Me for some lovely stuff (click on the "spun" link for the handspun). After knitting Teddy's Pebble vest from her handspun in January, I had to get me some more handspun, it is so nice to knit with!
Shame I couldn't quite get the colour right, it has more green and less grey/brown than the picture shows, but I think it will look gorgeous knitted up, if I can only decide what pattern to use...

And as for the good news, yes, for a change, my "outgoings" are bigger than my "incomings" this month! Hurrah!

In: 3 x 50g balls
Out: 7 x 50g balls

YTD: 27 x 50g balls. Making my monthly average a much more reasonable 13.5 x 50g balls! I like this monthly average business, thanks Lyn!

Well done, you're bringing that average down, which in this case is a good thing. Pretty wool and I am glad to hear it is MORE green than it appears!!

Lynne said...

What are you going to knit with it? I can't wait to see!

kgirl said...

i think that's a new record for you and a pretty dramatic change from recent months!

MadMad said...

That is gorgeous yarn; is it worsted weight?

Knitting with handspun feels so different. I think it's the love of the craft that is spun in the yarn. That is some seriously beautiful yarn.

The avereage looks good.

Roxie said...

Bravo! And who could resist the handspun and a back=up ball? Really, you are doing splendidly!

See you soon?

Well done! I'm so pleased the monthly averages are so good. The handpun, by the way, is lovely. Do you have enough for a BSJ? I made one in handspun and it was a lovely winter jacket for Sydney.
