I thought it might be interesting to put out there just where I am on the knitting front.
I have just moments ago finished the 37th ball - I have knitted 33 of these and donated 4 to other people. I'm happy with myself although you can't actually see the small hole where these 37 balls used to be, lol.
So from January until May we have the following:
January - Bought no yarn, used 391g so for the month I was +391g
February - Bought 700g, used 748g so for the month I was +48g
March - Bought 900g, used 1358g so for the month I was + 458g
April - Bought 1000g, used 688g so for the month I was -322g
May - Bought no yarn, used 250g so for the month I was +250g
Generally it seems that the numbers are going in the right direction, and the used yarn doesn't count the gifted to me or by me stuff. I'm destashing slowly but surely, and this month was basically socks, lol.
I think the important thing is that for two months this year I have bought nothing. There's 7 months left, lets see how many more yarn free months I can do!
