Got Stash?

If you have a ball of yarn, you have a stash. If you have a room full of yarn, perhaps the guest room, and you can't find a large piece of furniture, such as the bed, because the yarn has enveloped it, you have a problem. I have a problem. A big one. "Hi, my name is Jenn..." The amazing, always helpful Lia suggested that I join this StashAlong in order to try to get my habit under control. I signed right up. The first step is abstinence. I chose to quit for a two month period. After that, we'll see how anxious I get for a hit. I'm trying not to think about it as losing a stash so much as regaining about 80 square feet of guest room.

Here's what I'll be working on.

  1. Philosopher's cardigan kit "Trillium" in autumn colors
  2. Feather and Fan shawls from Interlacements in "Rick Rack" by Interlacements
  3. Cardigan (my design) in purple "Muskoka" by Berella
  4. Pullover (my design) in green heather "Amawalk" by Filofin (Italian)
  5. "Wonderful Wallaby" by Cottage Creations in purple acrylic Red Heart

From the Stash

  1. Philosopher's cardigan kit "Colour your own" in pastel colors
  2. Socks for The Baby out of leftover/orphaned sock yarn
  3. "Nantucket Jacket" from IK Winter 2006 in blue "Muskoka" by Berella
  4. "Children's Cotton Hats" from Last Minute Knitted Gifts in 1824 cotton by Mission Falls
  5. "Lizard Ridge" from in "Kureyon" by Noro

Don't expect that I'll finish them all in two months, but we'll see...

    Thanks, sis, for the link to the stashalong. Would you know if there is one out there for Quilters.

    Hey if you want to know about my new screen name - it means "a silly, flighty or scatterbrained person". Just so you know who you are talking to - and its not cher!
