Stash Report – Week 9, 2017

I was able to make it to the shop and finish quilting Missing Ivy.  Of course I forgot to take pictures again!  But I quilted everything except the dark blue border.  I decided to do those on my domestic at some point this month.  I hope to get those done in time for the April guild meeting.  The next one is next Monday and I am not going to push myself to get it done by then.

Missing Ivy Finished top! 10/10/16

I cut up some fabric to make more drawstring bags.  I hope to get the two for this month made.  I don’t like how the drawstrings are coming out and someone suggested a different material than what I had been using.  I’ll have to head over to the big box crafty store to see what’s available and try some out.  All other updates have been done on the knitting front and that will wait until my Knitting Tuesday post.

The fabric stash:  

  • Used this week: 0 yards
  • Used year to date: 7.5 yards
  • Added this week: 0 yards
  • Added year to Date: 8  yards
  • Net ADDED for 2017: .5 yards

For the Budget: 

I was able to catch Voolenvine’s update yesterday and was lucky enough to check out with some things.  That added to my spent section this week.  And I got in on a yarn of the month club with lolodidit.  Other than that I was able to control myself this week.  I’ve been watching a number of knitting podcasts and every time they mention some wonderful yarny goodness I feel the need to check them out.  So far I’ve gotten lolodidit, yarn ink , legacy knitz and some other ones.  On my wish list are: AndreSueknitz, and A Homespun House.  I really do not have any space for more yarn (my yarn space is very tiny indeed) so I’m trying really hard to knit my current projects and use up my fabric making quilts and bags.  But if I can catch an update and check out with 1-2 skeins, I’ll be happy. To be fair, I am trying to knit 12 pairs of socks this year and I do not yet have 12 skeins of sock yarn.  So… I think I can buy more sock yarn until I do. 🙂

Spent this week: $64.75

Spent year to date: $887.75
