Yards Used

Since the year is now more than half over (I can’t believe half of July is already gone either) I was looking back to see how many yards of yarn I hand knit and yards of fabric I had sewn last year at this time.    I knew I hadn’t quilted as much as last year at this point but that’s because I have large wedding quilts to contend with that aren’t finished yet but soon will be so I think that will bring me back to about where I was last year.

So far this year I have sewn 21.5 yards of fabric — that’s completed projects not works in progress.  You can see the completions so far this year but click the button in the sidebar.

That yardage does not include this little wallhanging.


I pulled this one out this afternoon, layered it, quilted it and I just need to hand stitch the binding to the back to complete it.

As for knitting, with doing ESK Yarnathon projects and TLE Camp Loopy projects I am way ahead of last year at this time. At this time in July last year I had knit 8, 215 yards of yarn.  This year I’ve knit 16,245  yards of yarn. Nearly twice as much!  You can see all those finished projects by clicking the button in the side bar also.
