Since the start of the year, I've been keeping busy with knitting projects. As I mentioned in my last post, I'm working towards a reduction in stash size this year. I'm going to track it in metres of yarn used which will hopefully help me keep track and add it in as I finish projects.
In January, I finished a couple of knitting projects
Cranford mitts for a former colleague
Snapdragon Tam for me
A Shawl in Old Maiden Aunt Merino Cashmere nylon 4ply in the colour Dreich
And finally a case for my Ipod touch to use the yarn left over from my hat
All in all, that meant I used 595 metres of yarn. The only yarn that has arrived in my house this month is my first Knit love club parcel which contained Alchemy Juniper sock yarn. 424 metres of lovely soft golden orangey yarn. So I end up the first month with 169 less metres of yarn. Fairly good for the first month, I think. Hopefully I can keep this up during the year.
All these knitted things have come in handy recently as the weather hasn't been the best this winter. The long cold snap in December has been followed by yet more cold weather in January and its has been snowing today again. I am so ready for Spring now.
