January Yardages

I said back at the start of the month that one of my goals for this year is to be "stash neutral". I don't think I've quite managed that this month lol.


I've added quite a few sock yarns this month. Some of them from a prize and some of them just because I spotted them and lusted after lol. I've got two more skeins of Countess Ablaze to arrive but I'll count them as February yarn's ;-)


I only had a couple of FO's this month although I've got two pairs of socks and some fingerless mitts which will hopefully get finished soon next month. I made some Baby Jester hats for my pregnant friend. I think she's due today but I don't know if she's had her baby yet. Mine tended to arrive late...

I also made a sweater for my son which has been keeping him cosy on these Wintery days


So in total:
Yarn out of stash: 1102.4 yards
Yarn into stash:  3178.1 yards

Stash is currently PLUS 2075.7 yards, whoops ;-)


The photos on this post are from a puppy meet up we went to today. Pippin enjoyed spending time with his brothers although they did pick on him a bit. They all ended up covered in mud so I had to give him a bath when we got home. He wasn't very impressed with me but he smells beautiful and has slept most of the day after all that running around :-)

As far as stash reduction goes, I guess I'd better get on with some more knitting!


  1. A large amount of which was due to your wonderful giveaway prize! So don't be too hard on yourself. I expect that it will even out next month. xx

    1. Yeah I'm not too concerned at this stage. Hopefully it will just motivate me to knit faster :)

  2. Nothing wrong with some stash reduction and good movie!


Thanks for visiting, I love comments :-)
