Yarn in, yarn out

My Buachaille order arrived, for Leon’s winter set and the Carraig Fhada vest for me. Look how pretty it is:
 
Now, what I like to do when getting large packets of yarn is to do a stash count update, just to check I’m heading in the right direction (which is less yarn, by the way)
 
Prior to the addition of the Buchaille, I have 14322 meters of yarn. At the end of last year I had 15807 metres, so its holding pretty steady. 
 
The main gains - or rather losses -  I have made so far this year are actually in yarn that wasn’t counted in the stash. The left over sock yarn which, in December 2016 weigh  one and a half kilograms, has been reduced to a much more reasonable 870   grams – yes, it’s now measurable in grams!
 

After adding this latest purchase my current number is 16412. Now I’m off to cast some of this lovely Buchaille on for Leon’s Winter Set. The beginning of April is quite late to be starting this. Luckily, summer was quite late this year, and the weather is only just starting to cool down. Still, I’d better get knitting, and fast.

  1. I haven't finished spinning for Damian's Winter set, I could be in trouble! I can't wait to see your Buchaille projects :)
