Okay, the yarn stash is organized. Pics just do not do it justice. All loose ends are wrapped and fastened, placed with other like yarns. I eliminated several end pieces. Also, there were many half used skeins that I know I will never use again. I look at those and think, ‘OMG, whatever made me think this was cute yarn!’ Most if the yarn I had in my room, stored in little cubbies, now have a space in my stash. Which mean, I can now buymore yarn to fill those empty cubbies! (Just kidding!)
This is what is on my needles. My second pair of socks. I’m going to try the ‘fish lips kiss’ heel.
I finished this about three weeks ago. I call it Sprinkled With Lilacs’. The color is a bit washed out in this pic. The pattern is for a shawl, but I used smaller needles to make a scarf. The pattern is the ‘xale Anita Shawl’ and of course it can be found on Ravelry along with my notes.
Okay, besides socks, I have two tunic tops that have been on my needles for several months, along with three shawls. So, what do I do but start another shawl! I must have attention deficit!
Look at this yarn. One of the ladies in my knit group was giving it away. I took a couple of skeins, leaving the other three for someone else. By the end of the day, no one else had claimed the other skeins. I did not want them to be lonely and separated so I added them to the two I had taken earlier. It is Sublime baby cashmere, merino, silk. 20% is silk and only 5%is cashmere. But it knits up very soft and squishy.
I bet you are dieing to know what I am making. So sorry, can’t show you yet. One of my fellow bloggers wanted some test knitters for a pattern she is developing. I have completed the project and submitted all the information to her. Now you just need to patiently wait until she gives me the go ahead to display her design. I know, I am a bit of a tease at times. But I do love a surprise.
HAPPY KNITTING AN D BLOGGING TO ALL.
