Well, I tried!

Well, I tried!

So at the beginning of this year I saw a blog post from someone where they had saved all the sleeves from their projects through the year. I thought to myself, COOL! I’m going to do that. And I thought I had until this very moment when I sat down to actually look at them. I really thought I had been careful about placing each sleeve into it’s own little baggy but upon inspecting I see that I only have 15 Paintbox Simply DK sleeves and we ALL know that isn’t right.

I used Paintbox DK for my Arizona tester, that is the blanket most of you see behind me during my live streams and that was 15 balls. I used it for testing Havana and I used Paintbox Simply Aran weight yarn for the filming of the Friends Around the World 3 CAL squares that we never released, there’s 13 of those. So these numbers are very off.

I am not even going to go into the “offness” of the StyleCraft labels.

Anywho, here is some fun math for the labels I DO have proof of..

Vinni’s Serina – 121 Yards

StyleCraft Classique Cotton – 1,990 Yards

Paintbox Simply DK – 3,216 Yards

StyleCraft Special DK – 8,372 Yards

Red Heart Super Saver – 1,456 Yards

Red Heart Super Saver Jumbo – 1,446 Yards

That is a total of 16,601 yards or 9.43 miles of yarn! (15.17 kilometers) I really am disappointed with myself for not keeping better track of my sleeves and I am going to try to do better in 2019. Looking at those numbers above I feel like I’ve accomplished nothing this year when I know that isn’t true. Must. Do. Better!

I hope 2019 is filled with as much squishy loveliness as you can possibly handle! I am busy working on filming the results from our best of 2018 polling and I hope for it to be live tomorrow or at the very latest the second. (Fingers crossed)
