Yes, I have too much stash. Surprise, Surprise. I decided that I needed to go through my stash and clean it out. I did that this past week and got rid of three plastic totes of yarn. Most of this yarn is junk yarn, but some of it is really good. I know it will go to a good home. I plan on donating it.
Going through my stash also showed me what I have in my stash that is great yarn. I need to use it. So, while I can’t say that I won’t buy any more yarn. I do plan on going to my stash first to search for yarn that I can use in a specific project. I was also able to organize my yarn. I tried to put the same brand of yarns together and I also have a tote full of sweater quantity of yarn. My future goal is go through my stash once a year and get rid of some of it via donation, selling or using it. If I can get rid of one tote a year, I will be in good shape.
On that note, I am moving along on the following projects: I am half way finished with my Spring Fever sock. This is lollipop yarn in the Spring Fever color using a size 1 needle with a basic sock pattern.
I love the colors of this yarn.
I also got to the heel turn of my second Sunshine sock by CookieA. I am enjoying this knit. I am using Sanguine Gryphon’s Bugga in Dragon Millipede with a size 1.5 needle. I am enjoying this pattern. I should finish it up this week.
I have already planned out what my next sock will be. I will be knitting the Dizzy pattern by CookieA. The yarn is wound and ready to go once I finish the Sunshine Sock.
I also finished day 6 of the 2011 Advent Calendar Scarf. I am using Madelinetosh Merino Lite in the Rainwater color with a size 2 needle.
The only thing I purchased this past week was a shawl/sweater clip by Tix Trinkets on etsy. I love it.
