One week in, almost 1000 yards up!

Yep, that resolution didn't really take so well. It didn't help that I found a picture on the internet of someone's stash that made mine look like small potatoes!

First, the Earthfaire order came - a merging colors kit in "Cape Cod." No details on the yarn, so this just adds one to the kit list:

Then I went to the Knitter's Cottage yesterday. They were having a "Christmas in July" sale and I couldn't resist a few things. Two skeins of Colinette Parisienne that were 50% off, 3 skeins of Crystal Palace Cotton Chenille that were 30% off, plus the new Interweave Felt special magazine and a Rowan Classic book.

I had missed a "staff" dinner last week, and the owner gave me the very generous goodie "bag" she had given everyone. Yep, that's some more sock yarn in the mix - Misty Mountain Farm Jubilee:

But I did finish a shawl made with one skein of Artyarns Silk Rhapsody:

I also ripped out the Genevieve shrug and started a Kiri shawl with the yarn on the Fourth. Its moving right along, and in fact looks like a project that will work as a train project. So hopefully it will be finished pretty promptly.

So, the net change on the count - 1 kit up, 917.38 yards up, 1 WIP down.

Oh, and I did order some other sock yarn this week and pulled off a few things from today's Posh Yarn posting! So another increase is on the horizon!

Now I should get back to clue 2 of the Mystery Stole 3!
