I wrote out my October goals yesterday and came to the conclusion that, on the whole, from the perspective of my knitting, October is going to be all about everyone else (but that’s ok, because then November can be all about me!)
So you can check them out in the sidebar. There is one thing there for me – I’ve pledged to go Sober for October (or Octsober!). I’m not entirely sure it’s a good idea to be honest, but a work colleague is doing it and I thought I’d help her out – it’s always a lot easier to do these things when you have some moral support! And it’s a nice little break before the Christmas silly season starts.
As for the stash – well, September was a pretty good month. I still ended up ahead, but only by 3 x 50g balls of yarn. And if I didn’t win the Wollmeise
sockclub lottery, I would have knitted more yarn than I stashed! Not that I’m complaining, mind. How could I, with this goodness:
(and no, I still haven’t taken them out of their lovely packaging – so you’ll have to trust me when I say the colours of these skeins are simply amazing – breathtaking even!)
And thanks to SweetP
, when I saw this yarn in Spotlight I had to nab some – I love the colour and it is so soft – a wool/bamboo blend – mmm, delicious.
While I was there, I saw these as well, and in trying to be a good patriotic Australian yarn buyer, I felt obliged to purchase some – and I’ve even knitted some of it already! (yarn review will come in another post this month).
In: 16 x 50g balls
Out: 13 x 50g balls
YTD: +106.5 x 50g balls. I’m pretty sure I’m not going to have any months this year when I send out more than I take in. Oh well … can’t complain about having a stash that’s got Wollmeise in it!
