Eyes on the Prize

After a slow start on New Year’s day, I spun for 2-3 hours each evening and finished the first of the skeins to be awarded by Leslie and Laura of the KnitGirllls podcast for the spin-along. I was aiming for 400-500 yards of fingering weight n-ply, but ended up with 360 yards of a DK weight yarn. I’m happy with the even consistency of the spinning. I think this should make a lovely hat or stripes in a scarf or a small shawlette or…

I have no idea how this is going to be awarded, but I bet if you tune in to the KnitGirllls podcast this month (and next!), they’ll let you know (they’re nice like that!).

Since this is destined to go into someone else’s stash, I’m counting it towards the 20 pound destash. The total destashed is now 1 lb 2.2 ounces. Somehow, I’m not sure I’m going to make 20 pounds before the festival – at this rate I may be destashing for all of 2013! It’s a good thing I have a couple aces up my sleeve…

1-5-13 Talley: 1 pounds 2.2ounces Fiber/Yarn lost on the stash diet!

    That’s so lovely. I missed out on the preorders due to Christmas shopping budget priorities, but I have been keeping a fervent eye out for the possibility of a new batch!
