Today is Flash Your Stash Day! I don't really have much of a stash (unlike some who will go unnamed *cough* Heather *cough*) so I thought it was be rather boring to show it off. Instead I went through and took pictures of the lonely balls of yarn which remain projectless (I'm one of those weird knitters who will usually just buy yarn with a project in mind). I thought that I could take advantage of the brain power of our readers and hopefully some projects can be thought of to make use of these lovely yarns.
On a side note, I'm feeling rather directionless knitting-wise right now. I was knitting away on Sizzle, fully intending to finish it soon, when my repetitive stress injury started acting up again. I think it's a combination of my job and knitting with cotton, since when I work with wool I don't seem to have a problem. Consequently Sizzle has been shelved until my job finishes at the end of April. To tide you over until then here's a picture:
I have finished the waist decreases and would have been able to start the increases.
I had been hoping to make Green Gable next with some gorgeous green Hempathy but that's out of the question until next month.
So I need your help to come up with projects for my lonely stash.
300m of Inca Gold Sport (bulky alpaca), 300m of Warani (worsted alpaca/wool) and 90m of DB Cashmerino Aran.
Originally purchased to make a matching cabled hat and scarf, I am no longer interested in that project.
125m DB Pure Silk, 110m Classic Elite Lush (light worsted angora/wool), 100+m Warani (alpaca/wool)
Assorted bits of Mission Falls wool left over from Tubey. The 2 white and 1 purple are complete balls while the rest are less. Since this is superwash I was thinking about using it to make baby gifts but I'm not sure what.
An unknown quantity of fingering weight cashmere given to me by a relative. I was thinking about doubling this but I'm not sure what to make of it. The colour doesn't worry me as I could overdye it.
And just for fun:
It's Cleo buried in yarn!
So... any ideas? I'd like to add that I have Heather's One Skein book with me but it hasn't been much help with these yarns (it has helped with others as will be revealed in a future post).
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
