Yarn Diet and Cold Sheep Progress

Well, this month ended up going in the wrong direction.  Apropos for the beginning of the year.  There are so many things I want to do this year.  Since I am not planning anymore leisure trips, I hope to accomplish some of my wish list.

I decided not to make any resolutions this year.  I'm going to take it slow and easy and be happy with whatever I can accomplish.

I fell of the sheep with my purchase the Woodland Winter Mittens from KnitPicks to make those cool mittens.  So that increased my stash yarn by 3,234 yards.

I also purchased 4 ounces of bison/merino (97/3) fiber from Judith MacKenzie at the espinner retreat in Forks, WA.  I'm planning on spinning a lace two ply with another fiber yet to be determined.

From my fiber pusher, I purchased a pound of superwash BFL, a pound of Polworth, and a pound of Merino/Bamboo/Silk.

I also purchased 8 ounces of BFL/Silk (85/15) from Sacramento when I was there for a work trip.

Shamrock Tam - knit for Mary in trade for sewing lessons.  136 yards.
