I had a little talk with myself, and told myself I wasn't going to end this year with another 5kg surplus of yarn. I'm do a lot of little custom knits, and I'm finding myself in yarn stores and thrift stores a lot as a result, since I don't seem to have the right yarns somehow. I'm trying really hard to not add to my stash, except for business purposes.
However....at the thrift store, yarn comes in bags with often several different yarns in one bag. Sometimes sorted by colour, sometimes random. So this adds to my pile. And, due to the popularity of the multi-textured, many shades stocking hats (two more to show you), I want to offer an older child version, and also be prepared for other colour combinations that might come up. And, sometimes I buy a yarn (thrift store or yarn store), and it's not right after all, or I used only a yard or two. So, already my stash has grown. I'm trying though, really I am!
Yarn In: 200gr + 661gr = 861gr
Yarn Out: 92gr
Balance: 769gr more brought IN than out
Cost $23.96 + $21.17 = $45.07/25 days = $1.80/day
Guess I need to get showing the projects I've finished so far! Not sure they'll bring me up to 769 gr though! I didn't include the two sweaters in this calculations as I'm not done weighing them.
