This arrived today. The last of the Destash for Cash yarn I bought. Tiennie, who is all things wise in the way of i-yarn/knitting, says Ravelry will be having a swap section, so I eagerly await my invite there. This bit of lovely greenness is Rowan Summer Tweed. I bought it as I saw all the lovely summer sweaters being posted, but being late to the game as always, I won't have time to knit something for this summer, but next summer. So welcome to the Stash, Rowan Summer Tweed.
Also in the mail was this bit of eBay I picked up. They are ends of someone's hand dyed. They are quite pretty and I thought they might make great components for hats or mittens. Like using one of these for the brim or the cuffs and then knititng the rest in a Cascade 220. Which I might just have a skein or two lying around. Cough. Cough. Cough.
Some of the hand dyed that you see of late is, shall I just say it outloud, really awful. I heard it referred to the other day as "clown barf" and unfortunately that often fits. But these are just great colors to work with. See for yourself:
When the yarn starts to get a mind of its own, then it's time to knit the stash.
Welcome to my blog. My name is Elizabeth, and I've been knitting off and on since I was seven. I come from a long line of knitters, crocheters and quilters and love anything to do with fiber. Since I live in a house filled with male DNA, this is where I get to share my projects and notions.
