Third won't be until March, but you know that's not that far off. There have already been some early whisperings on the March Sweater Madness front. Very exciting.
Currently I am working on a pair of socks that was ordered by a friend to wear in her riding boots. Regia 4-ply on 2.5mm, extra long leg. Legs and heels done on both socks and I hope to have the feet completed today.
Turns out that I chickened out from counting the stash, but I will attempt to keep track of used up stash this year.
Although my yarn diet has been in effect since January 1st, I would like to confess that some has entered the house (purchased online way back end November, if I remember correctly). 100% Mongolian Cashmere:
• Weight: 50 grams per ball(About 1.76 oz)
• Yardage: 600 yards per ball
• FINGERING WEIGHT
• Color# beige 086
• Hand wash in lukewarm water, lay flat to dry.
• Gauge: 32-36 stitches per 4.0 inches/10cm.
• Suggested needle size: U.S. 1-3 (2.25-3.25mm).
It's absolutely delicious! 4 balls of beige, 1 black and 1 dark chocolate brown. It took a while to get here because I was too cheap to spring for the expedited shipping but it's in my possession now and I'm in love!
