29.33 balls for the year
6,522.2 yards of yarn for the year
8.125 yards of fabric for the year
While the fabric progress is decidedly pathetic, if I keep up the pace on yarn, I could end the year with 19,566 yards of yarn and 88 balls all used up. Considering I still have to get ALL the stash back INTO the sewing room, this is highly motivating.
My yardage got a bit of a boost from this
which is being sold to another knitter. Generally, I don't sell my yarn, but this was a knitter who had run out of yarn for a project, and I have a special spot in my heart for a knitter in that place--especially considering the number of times I've been there myself. So, an additional 258 yards out of the stash, and a happy knitter at the other end. Win-win. And, whew, what a difference it will make in my stash as I move it all back IN! (I find delusion a powerful motivating force--can you tell?)
The new baby sweater has made progress, and is now at the raglan shaping for the yoke:
I think--and this is certainly a first--I will honestly enjoy unpacking those boxes and tidying the sewing room when the shelves are all done. I wonder if there's any project that could make me enjoy vacuuming.....................?
