Keeping track – November 2008

Well, you know, I never expected November to be a good month on the stash front – my birthday and all. And I was right! It wasn’t a good month for working down the stash. But it was a great month for building up the stash!

First up, some Malabrigo sock yarn in Tiziano Red – a present to me from me!

Then some more Malabrigo sock yarn in Velvet Grapes – a present to me from Miss F!
That was added to by more Malabrigo sock yarn from lovely Bells.
And even more yarny birthday goodness from Kylie, in the form of a sportweight Waratah Fibres yarn – unlabeled so have no idea what sort of wool it is (any guesses, anyone?) , except that it is lovely!
And finally, Big Red:
A workmate did a direct order from Peaches n Cream (Elmore Pisgah) and so I said if she felt like throwing in a cone of PnC in red for me, I’d be happy to take it off her hands. So she did, and I did. Mmmmm, a whole cone. I just like looking at it…

In: 37 x 50g balls (same as October – eep!)
Out: 6 x 50g balls (doesn’t sound like much but there was other knitting happening too)
YTD: 166.5 x 50g balls

And as for monthly goals – I haven’t even given them a thought. But when I do, it will be something like: packing; moving; unpacking; putting up Christmas tree; surviving Christmas; and hopefully finishing one knitted Christmas item. I’ll tell you about the moving in another post…

    Good morning! And happy summer! You make me feel so much better about my own stash and yarn acquisition. šŸ™‚ Of course, I haven’t been knitting much of anything lately yet I’ve still acquired yarn, so maybe I’m not virtuous as I feel!!

  2. ohhh – really like the present you bought yourself. all best with moving! and Christmas.

  3. Blow the shash down – those are great yarns!So you’ve moved? And sold the house? Hope it all went well – I’m still recovering from my move 2 1/2 years ago!

  4. Having seen your Inwards Declaration, I feel less guilty about buying yet another 2 skeins of lace weight this month . However I suspect your 37 balls are more likely to be used before my 2. If we place our household inventories in time capsules, will future historians be fascinated by the amount of wool, the way that we are with the details of life from a few centuries ago?

  5. Geeber – that should have been “stash”!!

    I stopped counting my stash as I seem to be acquiring more than I can knit!

  7. i so look forward to your yarn tallying. I really hope you don’t stop buying and receiving stash because it’s worth it just to see the tallies!

  8. love love the red you bought yourself.

  9. Well, now you’re in a bigger house, I should imagine you’ve got the space for much more yarn? Maybe a whole room devoted to stash? Just a thought…

  10. That doesn’t seem like so very much. And doesn’t gift yarn (like sock yarn) not count as stash? So, you really didn’t increase the stash that much…..

  11. Happy Birthday! I never get yarn unless I buy it myself – your so lucky šŸ™‚ And your yarn is sooooo beautiful!
