Ooohhh. Scary title!
Facing the truth about just how much yarn has come into the house this year already, despite saying I'm only buying for confirmed projects! I've got so many ideas running around, and so little time, but I've just got to buckle down and get this tally updated!
I was scrolling through my blog last night, and was having trouble figuring out what yarns I've already included, so I'm going to itemize things a bit better today. I can use my tablet to look back at my blog, while using the desktop to do the writing! But it appears I need to take some pictures first! And upload them! And my uploading program is not co-operating. And now Blogger rotated one of the photos...
Let's back up and look back and what's come in earlier this year:
Jan 14: Elann.com order; $21.17; 200gr
Jan 25: Value Village; yarn 461gr (sweaters not included); Michaels' Vanna's Choice; 200gr; $23.96
Jan 26: Grey and Peach sweaters, 581gr; $13.54
And yarn out:
Jan 31: 266 gr mini blankets
Feb 20: 40gr Hershey set
So, yeah. I'm a bit behind. I'm sure you're assuming I've made more than just 3 mini blankets (on a knitting machine), a ruffle scarf, and a newborn hat/diaper cover set! I've got more to show--some I've been hoping for "real" photos before posting. What else is there?
Fisherman's Outfit: 174 gr
Green and Pink textured stocking caps: 151gr for pink one (green one in last year)
Striped crochet earflap hat: 40gr
4 pairs tiny "ballet slippers": 18gr
Beehive Slouch hat: 100gr
All that adds up to only 483gr. I've got other projects I'm currently working on (such as those Baby Surprise Jackets that needed sewing up and buttons...). But at least now I can update my Confessions, and blog later about the actual projects.
Now....for the yarn that has come IN the house....eeeekk!
Total weight from this update: 3365gr.
Total costs from this update: $79.55
Yarn out from this update: 483gr
Let's combine this with the previous totals:
Yarn In: 3365gr + 1442gr = 4807gr
Yarn Out: 483gr + 398gr = 881gr
Balance: 4807gr-881gr = 3926gr more brought IN than out
Costs: $79.55 + $58.61 = $138.16/56 days = $2.47/day
And I have to go to Michaels' tomorrow for at least one more ball of yarn...
As much as this seems, last year on Feb 27, I had 10 466gr in, due to a donation, and had spent $2.62/day! Wow. I thought for sure I was way above last year! The big difference is that this year, I'm making a bit of money :)
