Yup, More Yarn In

With all the Hallowe'en shopping at Value Village, there was bound to be more yarn coming home. 

Five balls of Brilliant by Novita, 50gr each, 31% acrylic, 21% cotton, 19% wool, 17% nylon, 12% viscose.  How do you like that combo, LOL!  It's sort of  pale green with darker (but not dark) green slubs, sort of  bumpy, with a long halo that sort of shines.  I can totally picture the sweaters from the early 80s!  $4.50

A large, 200gr ball of "Sweety", a white DK yarn, with 80% acrylic, 10% mohair, and 10% wool.  A nice basic yarn, will look sweet as little pants and bonnets, or a blanket, or hat or scarf... Also $4.50.  It's "made in France" but I don't see a maker's name.

Next year, I might keep a total of how much of what I make actually leaves the house.  It was probably pretty good this year, as I've done so much custom work, but I did do a bunch of newborn hats that didn't go anywhere except the sale box.  It's not really yarn out, if the yarn is just transformed and moved to a new location within the house, LOL!

Yarn In:  12 507 + 450gr = 12 957gr
Yarn Out:  10 431gr
Balance:  2 526gr more brought IN than out
Costs:  $9 + $249.29 = $258.29/305 days = $0.85/day
