My Mum has been helping to clear out an old friend of the family’s house. A few knitting items emerged, which have been handed on to me. I have no idea how old the wool is (it is 100% wool). The balls are 1oz size so must be quite old! I’m planning to knit something for LO with them, whilst she’s still reasonably small, but I’m not adding to stash as I have no idea what the yardage is.
And I did some shopping by proxy at Edinburgh Yarn Festival, as Mostly Knitting was going and offered to shop on my behalf. I asked for some sock yarn from the Knitting Goddess and gave some suggested colours I’d like, and this is what arrived in the post!
So, yarn totals so far this year (first quarter):
In 1930 metres. Out 500 metres.
I’ve acquired 1430 metres than I’ve used so far but I’m still working on this blanket which will be a lot of metres used once it’s finished. 😉
Have you done any knitting with vintage yarn?
