With the kids home last week, I spent most of my time Destashing. I actually got rid of a load of sock yarn, a pile of books and some other odds and ends. I really didn't mind seeing them go out the door. They were beloved once, but I won't knit with them and yarn should be knit. I still have a few more skeins that need new homes, but they are going to have to continue living in my closet for the time being.
While I was digging through the closets, I pulled out these Knitpicks skeins of Telemark I picked up in December to do some coffee holders with--the coffee holders never got knit, but I still had the yarn.
I wasn't sure why I pulled them out, but I plopped them in my workbasket and kept watching them hoping for some inspiration. I found it last night with this hat from Brooklyn Tweed. Then I found this skein of sport weight sock yarn leftover from my Destashing. Now I'm thrilled no one was inspired to buy it because it will make a great lining for the hat.
Funny how those things work out.
