Most of my July Stashdown effort was caused by discarding yarn. After frogging the socks, I gave 400 yards of fortissima sock yarn away to the church knitting group. I have learned a lesson here, and that is not to let house cup requirements bounce me into hasty yarn purchase. Also, I sent 240 yards of long-term stash Rowan summer tweed out of the house in a swap parcel. So that's 640 yards gone.
In terms of actual knitting or crochet, I used up
- About 20 yards crocheting peas in a pod
- 50 yards in a stashdown dishcloth
- another 300 yards on my blues summer top, which is now finished:
So the total reduction for the month is 640 given away plus 370 worked up = 1010 yards.
I didn't buy any more yarn in July, but I received 325 yards of Alchemy Haiku in a swap parcel. So the end of month net position is 685 yards down.
