I had to go buy yarn at some point.  Stockings just don't create their own yarn while waiting in the corner.  Michaels was having a sale and I thought I might be able to get some yarn that I needed.  I did pretty good, 6 balls of Impeccable for a Christmas stocking and a mermaid blanket (6x128gr=768gr; $4.99 each, buy 2 get the 3rd one free), and 2 balls of Loops & Threads "Pizzazz" (2x50gr=100gr; $6.99 each but I could use a coupon for one so it was only $4.19).  These are about a sock weight, 72% superwash wool, for a couple pairs of fingerless gloves for little girls I know.  All together, it was $35.19 and 868gr.  So am I still using more than I buy?....

Yarn In: 868gr + 50gr = 918gr
Yarn Out: 1181gr
Balance:  227gr more USED than bought
Costs:  $35.19 + $7.90 = 43.09/27 days = $1.49/day

Yay!  Just squeaking by, though I do have a 68gr red scarf to post, and two big mermaid blankets that are almost finished!
