The last yarn purchase for 2007 $28.00 total $862.00

This is the last of my yarn purchases for 2007. Double strand = a nice sock weight. That is gonna make a whole lot of socks or some nice lace weight scarves/shawls. 90% wool 10% nylon from ebay.
So the total I spent on yarn for 2007 was around $862.00. Add some books, needles, magazines, etc and my hobby probably ran around $1000.00 for the year. Not bad at all. I finished 113 items. And I have enough yarn in the house to last at least a year ... just in case there's a crisis and I can't get to a store for one year. lol.
I haven't blocked the scarf yet because I'm working on this secret for a contest next week. It'll be a guessing contest involving a quanity of baby socks. My hubby said that sooner or later I'd get tired of making baby socks but that just doesn't seem to be happening.

Maybe it's time for a 12 step program? "Hi I'm Diane and I can't stop making baby socks."

Gotta go have a little breakfast. If you like oatmeal you've got to try this stuff. Totally different taste and texture. Unfortunately if take about a half hour to make it so I do a larger quanity and throw it in the fridge so I don't have to make it every day.

Maybe I'll keep track of my fiber purchases this year, because I really have no idea how much I spend. It can add up quickly though.

Not a bad price for your hobby. I'm going to keep track of my new stash for this year as well. I think it would be interesting to see what actually gets spent and what actually gets used up.

and kid socks are so quick, it would be hard to get sick of them. I had to take a break for a couple of weeks but my fingers are itching to get back to another set soon!

You only have enough yarn to last ONE year? Gee, you need help, lady! :-)) I'd have to knit 24x7 to finish my stash in a year, maybe knit extra fast too.

I love steel cut oats, yum!

Yum! I love steel cut oats. I usually buy McCann's. I'll have to look for the Quaker. I'm sure it's a lot cheaper than McCann's.

I think $1000 for a year for yarn is fabulous. I am too afraid to keep track of mine. I do know it is a small price to pay in order to keep my sanity though.

Love the bag of baby socks
