February Stash Busting

Well, The February stash busting was...a bust. I did use up some old yarn. I made the entire front of Mark's sweater, which used up one large skein of Red Heart. I knit my first pair of socks in the round with two almost full balls of wool-ease. Mark put them on right away so there are no photos to post. But...I fell victim to a yarn purchase. What it was is a secret because it's special for someone, but of course I also fell victim to some yummy alpaca for myself to save on the shipping. So, I figured out yardage wise, February had an exact net exchange of zero, no gain on busting the stash, but I'm still ahead for the year :)

Oh yea, I managed to write and submit a 20 page paper that will become part of my dissertation, lest you all think that I'm so yarn obsessed I've been avoiding my real life! For fun I made a master document today. Cover to bibliography I'm up to 63 pages. Not too shoddy. Sadly, percentage wise, I'm only ~30% of the way there....

Oh yea, I'm with Krista, why did Jesus show up down the street in a piece of sheet metal?
