WIP Wednesday.

Making a Simple Things Shawlette for a non-knitting friend who doesn't read the blog. I hope


I'm using a couple skeins of Koigu I bought at Purl Soho in May, 2007, when we were in NYC for #1's graduation from college. The knitting you see is the first skein plus a few yards from the second. I think I wound the yarn into center-pull balls early in 2009 with the intention of making a pair of socks from Knitting Socks From Hand-Painted Yarn but it never quite happened. After having been wound for so long, the yarn is not as delectable as it would have been in the skein. But I am suffering through it 😉

I did a quick spreadsheet and discovered I knit 5.8 miles! of yarn in 2010. I even impressed myself. Now for the 25+ miles remaining in the stash

    But does this count ripping and reknitting?

    OK, now I feel like you’ve dropped the gauntlet and I have to count how much yarn I used in 2010.

    Lovely knitting.
    Woo Hoo!
    That’s quite an accomplishment!

    I am NOT counting my yarnage (yarn milage) in 2010. Not not not.
    I’m fear your stash is getting low – if you’ve only got enough for another 5 years, you are not STABLE.
