Nothing to See...

I'm busy crocheting bear hoodies, and kitty hoodies, and stuffed bears....while I do have some finished projects to show you, right now I need to get caught up on the "Yarn In" totals.  Ugh.  I hate this type of post.  However, ALL the yarn I've bought is for orders, not for the stash.  Unfortunately, there usually ends up being some left overs that do go in the stash.  Sometimes it gets balanced by yarn coming out of the stash, but lately...not so much!

3 balls of Loops & Threads "Impeccable" in black, for more Toothless orders.  128gr x 3 = 384gr; $12.40
6 balls of Loops & Threads "Cozy Wool" in Mushroom, 127gr x 6 = 762gr; $33.83
2 balls Loops & Threads "Cozy Wool" in Brown and Mushroom, 127gr x 3 = 381gr; $16.92

Totals:  1527gr, $63.15.


Yarn In:  1527 + 7547yd = 9074gr
Yarn Out:  4002gr
Balance:  5072gr MORE brought IN then out
Costs: $63.15 + $394.48 =457.63 /298 days = $1.54/day 

A year ago, this was my post:
Yarn In:   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

My out totals were a little inflated, because I had given away quite a bit of yarn, after getting a large donation.  I think my balance would be about the same once I complete my current set of orders using all this yarn I bought.  If I use most of it--say, 1350gr, that will improve my balance to 3722gr, plus the projects I haven't shown yet.  My costs were much less last year because I was doing more knitting from my stash and from thrifted yarns.  This year, many of my orders need yarn purchased.  I might go back and create subtotals, for yarn given to me, and given away/sold, vs the amount actually used.

Two years ago, this was my post:
Yarn In:   18 141gr
Yarn Out:  14 640gr
Balance:  3501gr more brought IN than used up
Costs:  $16.88 + $420.20= $437.08/311 days = $1.41

Wow, look at that yarn in/out!  I must have gotten a big donation!!  The rest is pretty comparable.  How interesting!
