I am working on a mega project. I won't tell you much, except that it will involve lots of scarves, stoles, wraps, etc. It will partially be a way to broaden my horizons with my Singer 327, using new techniques, and using up yarn. Lots of yarn, I hope! The first example wasn't too difficult, except that with scarves, swatches often become a scarf and scarves often end up just being a swatch. This is a 3x3 rib, with the center needle of each three taken out of work. I didn't want it heavy like a winter scarf. The first swatch was very narrow, but I didn't realize at the time how much I could stretch it. So, I cast on twice as many stitches. Now, it was a great width (even a little wide), but too short. By about half. Went in the middle for the next attempt, LOL.
Yarn Out: 9859gr + 43gr = 9902gr
Balance: 1 003gr more In than Out
Cost: $192.71/119 days = $1.62/day
I didn't include the pink-turned-white shawl as it's not "finished" or the shawl I just posted as I started it before this whole yarn confession thing. I did buy two Machine Knitters Monthly magazines...should I count them? And, I've got an order in for about $120 worth of yarn, partially for a business adventure!!
