Stashdown 2017 – June progress

June, the halfway point in the year, saw the completion of both knitting and spinning projects, both decreasing and increasing my stash. Let’s see how it all played out.

It began with the completion of another Viajante (aka giant vagina) which I had been working on at Bungay. This used up a total of 2,078 yards.

I also did a little pre-Tour spinning, turning 100g of Oatmeal BFL into 526 yards (and 113g) of a light fingering weight 2-ply yarn:

Another 100g of BFL, this time in a natural brown, was turned into 498 yards (and 101g) of light fingering weight 2-ply:

The rest of June was spent working on another knitting project that is still a WIP as the Tour de Fleece takes over in July.
