I feel like I didn’t get a lot knitted this month, although my totals aren’t doing too badly, now that I’ve sat down and worked it all out. I do have a couple of FO’s to flash, which I’ll do in the next week or two (promise!).
I did come into some yarn this month – I’m in two minds about whether to count it as part of my incomings, since I didn’t buy it – I kind of inherited it. I sort of think I won’t count it…I do plan to knit up some of it as a gift back to the person who gave it to me, in the next month, so that makes me feel less guilty about not officially counting it, heh!
It wasn’t a huge amount, and it was all good stuff (I had visions of being the recipient of a vast amount of yarn of questionable quality, but I got lucky!).
First up was 16 balls (well, 15.5, as one ball was quite damaged – like it had been accidentally cut by scissors or something…well, that’s what I’m hoping anyway, rather than moth damage!) of a navy 8ply/dk merino crepe yarn – which I’m thinking will make a nice Greenfield
Next was 5 balls of Heirloom Merino Magic in a range of colours – nice yarn (this will be the gift).
And I saved the best for last! 4 balls of Zara in tomato red! woo hoo!
I also received a bunch of needles, mostly straights, including a couple of KnitPicks harmony straights – which I suspect have never been used – I’m thinking of selling these – anyone interested? (I’m not sure many people I know knit with straights any more, especially the really long ones!)
