So I said that one resolution for the new year was that I would knit down my stash.
Well, we had a stash swap at work and I left the store with the yarn for two sweaters.I picked out this pattern already for the Yorkshire Tweed Aran.
Do I already have a sweater in this yarn and in this color? Am I wearing it right now? the answer to both of those questions is yes.
Will that stop me? no.
Then, I got a very generous gift certificate to the store for my work in the Yarnery Family Singers.
Along with the lovely Christmas gift from the wonderful Yarnery managers I ended up with the yarn for two more sweaters.I am planning on re-knitting the Tangled Yoke.
I knit it once before, but it was in fact not at all the right size for me.
I gave it to my dear friend Sarah. I hear that she wears it all the time.
Now, the thing about my stash is that it is primarily single balls here or there of worsted wool.
Now I have actual sweater amounts of stuff I am feeling a little better about the stash.
One dilemma still remains.
Should I use my 13 Mile fantastic green organic wool for cables or fair isle?
Some of my single ball stash is left over Rowanspun DK that I used in my Eastlake sweater and odds and ends of more colors of Rowanspun and a couple of colors of 13 mile.
I think I have enough of these odd balls to make a stripey cardigan with these colors, or I could use the new 13 mile for the body color and use the odd balls in a fair isle yoke.
The green looks really grey here but it is much nicer in person.
That stuff may have to marinate, as they say.
I have made some considerable progress on the Annie and the Wild Animals Sweater, I am finishing up the neck and then all I have are sleeves.
Pics tomorrow, I think, the sun has been down for some time.
Have a lovely night.
