And We're Off!!!!!

I'm not sure if it's a good or bad sign, but I woke up this morning seriously confused as I had dreamed that I had placed a MASSIVE yarn order, and I was worried about where to put it all.  As much as I love yarn, it was a relief to wake up and realize I wasn't about to be bombarded by yarn.  (I know--I can't believe I'm saying that either)  Obviously, the spending ban has permeated my subconscious, though I'm hoping the nightmares end soon.  Being attacked by large amounts of fabric would just seem too realistic given some of the issues in the sewing room.........

I fell a bit short of the 4,000 yards needed for the Mad Halloween Dash, but I suppose 3,599 yards is a decent showing.  I think I might have made it if it hadn't been for the problems with the pain medications this week, no use crying over spilt wool.  I still ended October with:

Skeins of yarn used:  11
Yards of yarn used:  1805
Yards of fabric used: 0

The Holiday Music Basket Dash kicks off today as well,  and I need to use up 2717 yards of yarn before year end to beat my best-yardage-ever number, and 3,533.15 yards to reach 20,000 yards.  And I need 5 sweaters.  I'm thinking this last one could run into a problem, and I think if I had to pick, I'd put yardage over sweaters as I'm SO close to a new record.  Or with two whole months left, could I do both................?
