Just a quick post as I'm between vacations, LOL!
I had a comment on the Violet Sunset post about my Yarn Totals at the bottom of most of my posts. For several years now, I've been keeping track of how much money I spend on yarn, how many grams I buy/acquire, and how much I use up/give away. I chose grams because much of my yarn is thrifted, vintage, or unlabeled, so I don't know the yardage. I take how much I spend, and divide it by the number of days in the year so far, to figure out my "per day" yarn costs. I don't add in the costs for needles, patterns, buttons, etc.
It's been interesting. I'm down in productivity this year, I think. If I was at my regular computer I would be able to link to the recaps, but if you choose "Confessions" under the Labels, over on the right, you should be able to find them :)
