Must Stash Podcast is hosting a stash flash for the month of June. I have been cold sheeping (not buying yarn) for most of the year and have wrestled with my stash a few times in the past year. I lost some yarn for two weeks recently, but it was where it was supposed to be. An obvious sign that I need help.
The jars on the window seat of my sunroom/lab are filled with my favourite fingering and lace weight yarns. Plus a jar of blue leftovers for a baby blanket. These are the ones I can't be parted from. I like to keep ideas in play and it helps me to have visual prompts. Don't mention the footstool. Nothing to see there.
Mason Dixon Knitting girls. I wanted to do the Mitred Cross blanket, but I may do Fussy Cuts. I like to buy patterns that help others. The Noro Kuryon collection began with a plan to make Lizard Ridge for my daughter's grad, but she voted for an entrelac blanket instead. I did get to watch my BFF make one for her son's grad from UBC.
I haven't "really" bought any yarn since the New Years sales.
I only have 3 items on the needles right now. A tea cozy for the fair, my July sock for Operation Sock Drawer and the Nuvem. But Nuvem counts as a blanket and a shawl, so I just can't cast on more things till she's done, or almost done.
We cleaned up the rest of the big room in the basement on Saturday to store Emily's drums with the bag pipes and the guitars.
Both kids have household items in the back room, but Scotty moved into a new apartment this weekend so I asked him to give me a wish list. I'll bet most of the things are already there.
Everyone has a stash of some sort.
