Flashing the Stash
My friend Knittymuggins and I are working on a trade. We're each clearing out a little of our stash and possibly trading with each other for some new yarn. I took some pictures this morning of the skeins I am clearing out. If Knittymuggins doesn't want them, then this yarn is going to be quickly made into socks... or maybe used as prizes in our Finish-a-Long. It's all really good yarn, I just don't love it as much as I used to.
Speaking of the Finish-a-Long, we are just a week away from the finish date. I know a lot of you are doing better than I am. I've heard of people finishing projects that have been sitting since the 1980's. One person has finished 10 items so far! That's amazing! I'm still working on my socks and mittens. Although I don't think I'll have time to finish the wrap I started 3 years ago, I do want to still get it done before Stitches.
Now, a little flash of my stash...
Hazel Knits, Artisan Sock in It's a Wrap. This is an exclusive sock club colorway.
Lorna's Laces Shepard Sock in Rainbow. I bought this forever ago, probably right after I knit my first pair of socks. I always thought this yarn would make awesome socks for kids.
ON Line Supersocke 100. I think this came from a swap package. I've never really known what to do with it as I never really dug the colors all that much. Which is a bit strange since I love pink and green together. I think I just have trouble knitting with something that is multicolored. I tend towards the tonal colorways.
Hello Yarn sock yarn in Fruit Bowl. I've always wanted some Hello Yarn sock yarn but never seem to be online when she has inventory available. This was the only skein left in her inventory and although it's not really my style, I snatched it up. Now I don't know what to do with it.
