Yesterday’s post got me thinking . . . what happened? What was all that yarn for? Why didn’t I ever use it? So, let’s take a look at some of the stash.
Knit Picks Merino Style in Pine and Fog. “We Call Them Pirates” hat for Hubby. Poor Hubby, no hat.
Plymouth Tweed. Also for a hat for Hubby, just before casting on Hubby made a comment about not wanting a boring gray hat. *sigh* No, he didn’t know I was about to make him a classic gray hat that would go with anything, but still no hat for Hubby.
Ultra Alpaca. Purchased last winter for a hat for me, had other projects that needed finishing, never cast on.
Elann.com Sonata. These coordinating yarns were purchased to make a color-blocked sweater for Bug. She grew, now I don’t have enough yarn to make the sweater and the dye lots have changed.
Ironstone Yarns Streamers. Purchased on clearance for a cute purse in a magazine. After reading the pattern I really didn’t like how it was constructed. Pretty yarn but no clue what to do with it now, so into the stash.
Knit Picks Wool of the Andes, this was purchased for the Samus KAL from the Fall 05 Knitty. Knit a swatch, then panicked, wasn’t ready to knit a sweater for myself and doubted how flattering it would be. I have used some of the yarn for some charity knitting, but still have more than enough for a sweater for Bug and maybe one for Bubba, too.
There are yarns from the deal I just couldn’t pass up or the store closing sale or the retail therapy sock yarn. Some of the stash will go on the sell/trade page in Ravelry, some will go out in the garage sale (most of that didn’t even make it onto Ravelry) Actually, more than half the yarn could go and I wouldn’t mind, I am attached to some of it for various reasons but the rest . . . eh.
