Checkin’ in

I can’t believe that is the 25th of June already. Time really has flown by this month and the focus on moving stash out from downstairs has been interesting.  Here’s the current recap from this month:

 

In:

Nest Fiber:

20 ounces of Junebug Superwash Merino

3.5 ounces of Fiddlesticks  Superwash Merino

4 ounces of Magpie in Finn

4 ounces of Magpie in BFL/Silk

8 ounces of an OAK in Finn

4 ounces of Paletas in Organic Polworth

6 ounces of Garden Party’s coordinates

8 ounces of Magrat in mixed BFL

4 ounces of Alpine glow in Polworth

Yarn:

1 skein of  Moonrover’s sock yarn in Spacedust

1 skein of Plucky Cashmere in “Singing the Blues” ( I won it what was a girl to do?)

1 skein of Druzy Rising ( I am pinching myself that I was able to snag it)

6 skeins of Plucky Spiffy in Cloud Cap ( My excuse is that I am doing it for science…. <– Yeah, it is a lame one I have a friend who suggested a sweater from the latest issue of “Making)

 

Out:

Fiber:

4 ounce of Alpine glow in Polworth

1 mini skein of Bee Mice Elf

3.5 skeins of Camellia &Co. Fiber Co.

13.5 skeins of Plucky Sweater

Various odds and ends of handspan to knit up Smittens

 

Not sure if I am making a huge dent but I feel that the blanket I finished might have made have offset some of the fiber I had coming in….

 

Oh yeah I forgot to mention… in an attempt to maximize the amount of yarn I am using on my projects I have finding ways to incorporate even more yarn on projects than I had planned. Case in point the edging on the granny square blanket ( I was able to use 1/3 of a whole new skein) and I also plan on lining these some mitts with some yarn I have laying around…. I am getting creative with my stash busting.
