The end of June

So this month I used:
20g for Zara's Mousie hammock
50g for Kylie's wheatbag covers
324g for Jasmine's jumper
70g for Nathan's two glasses bags
23g for Mum's phone cover
86g for Zach's milo vest
=
573g.
.
I am going to subtract Point Five from the stash total of 18.4, bringing my official stash total down to 17.9kg. Woo hoo! (Because now I can buy at least 5 guilt-free skeins at Bendi... hehehe) And I'll add the leftover 73g to next month's total.
.
It's been fun keeping track, but it occurs to me that I don't knit a lot for myself. I have a jumper in the works that I know isn't going to fit well (until I lose some of the kilos I'm blaming Zacky for), so I don't work on it much. Then there is... the occasional hat? I have a few hats. Some scarves. Worn socks.
.
Next month, in addition to the jelly socks that are almost done, I'm going to knit myself something with a bit of weight! I'm thinking a vest to keep my heart from freezing in the Ballarat Wind ;). Time to go trawling 'Ravelry...

Well done, you got quite a lot knit this month! And definitely make something for yourself next. You deserve it.

oh that is quite a lot of knitting, but yes for other people! a vest sounds like a great idea.

Well done Tam! See, that's the difference between you and I. I rarely knit for others, heh. I figure it's my time and my money paying for the yarn, so it's MY knitwear. Hah!
