I found my number

I'm knitting again, but trying to ease back into it, having seen the Osteo's face when I let slip that its not unusual for me to knit for five hours in a day. So on Saturday instead of knitting I put my stash on Ravelry, and discovered that I have 23,725 meters of yarn. That's nearly 24 kilometres. What's missing from this number is my sock yarn scraps, which I seem to have an awful lot of, the yarn I am currently knitting with, the bathmatt yarn I just spun, because I didn't bother measuring it, and the package from New Zealand. Which contains, 2 jumpers a vest and two pairs of socks worth of yarn. And I will open it , as soon as I have knit: 2 jumpers a vest and two pairs of socks.

For me, the most interesting thing about counting my yarn was discovering that 37 out of my 53 yarns are sock weight. 11409 meters, or nearly half my yardage is sock yarn. Luckily, you can never have too many socks!

  1. Woo hoo! You have a tenth of my stash! I'm sure I'd have a tenth of my stash if I could knit as fast as you :)
