Stash Graphs for July

I totally missed the beginning of June. I might have been a little lower then.



The stash graphs say I might be laying it on a little thick right now.  I haven't had this many skeins or that many miles in quite some time.

So I might need to use 2 miles before I think about buying more yarn. I was under 20 miles for quite some time. I might be able to point to 2 skeins at a mile a piece and say where that all came from.



That's all for now,

Take care guys
