Stashdown 2017 – July progress

July was dominated by Tour de Fleece. Although I did also knit a sweater the fit wasn’t quite right and it got ripped out and re-worked, not counting for July yardage. Instead all I managed to do was add to my stash as follows:

  • 300g of Little Owl Crafts Wensleydale in natural grey became 1,080 yards of 2-ply fingering weight yarn


  • 100g of Sara’s Texture Crafts BFL in Strawberry colourway became 502 yards of 2-ply light-fingering weight yarn


  • 200g of Sara’s Texture Crafts Merino & Silk in Heathered Highlands colourway became 1,074 yards of 2-ply light fingering weight yarn


  • 500g of Jamieson & Smith Shetland in natural fawn became 2,036 yards of 2-ply fingering weight yarn


  • 100g of Wildcraft Romney in Purple Topshells colourway became 446 yards of 2-ply fingering weight yarn


  • 130g of Hilltop Cloud Suffolk in Winter Moss colourway became 506 yards of 2-ply fingering weight yarn


  • 100g of Wildcraft Jacob in The Night Circus colourway became 336 yards of 2-ply fingering weight yarn


  • 120g of Hilltop Cloud Exmoor Blueface in Eclipse colourway became 424 yards of 2-ply fingering weight yarn


  • 100g of The Double Ewe Whitefaced Woodland in Easter Brunch colourway became 306 yards of 2-ply sport weight yarn
