The Whole Truth

You didn’t think I was able to leave a recent 42% off sale with just a couple of skeins of Noro, did you? The truth is, I increased my stash by a third that week, between Becca’s generous stash-busting and the Yarn Garden’s Superbowl sale. So here they are, my new wooly friends and sources of inspiration:


Yarn: Jojoland Melody Superwash, color MS16, 2 balls (To be socks for my sweetie)


Yarn: Cherry Tree Hill Supersock Solids, Natural, 1 skein (lacy footwear for me, perhaps?)

Yarn: Cascade Tuscany Grande, Sunrise, 2 balls


Yarn: Cascade Tuscany Grande, Celedon, 2 balls

Sidenote: I got a message on Ravelry asking if they could feature this photo on this yarn’s page!


Yarn: Cascade Lana D’Oro, black, 2 skeins

Okay, that’s the full truth, I promise! I have gone from a meager little stash that fit in a single layer in one box to something that resembles a corner in the messiest yarn shop you’ve ever been to. It’s a little out of hand, and I need to find a way to tame the beast before it crawls out of the over-stuffed box and smothers me in my sleep.

In the meantime, I have a lot of knitting to do! I have been resisting the urge to cast on every one of the above yarns because I need to tie up some UFOs before heading out on the Stitch ‘n Beach cruise on the 27th. I’m signed up to take 6 classes, and they each come with a project! So I don’t plan on taking anything more than a stockinette sock with me to knit on the train to New York.

Stash Infusion

At Stitch n’ Bitch on Monday, I arrived to find beautiful bags of yarn circulating through the group. Turns out Becca is trying to rid herself of some stash, and decided to share the goodies with us! I showed some restraint, knowing that a trip to the yarn shop was in my immediate future, and took these home with me:



Top: Berroco Furz in Lavender

Bottom: Reynolds Garden Tweed in color 09

I have absolutely no idea what will become of these particular yarns, but I just fell in love with their color and texture. It’s good to have some stash around for inspiration, right? I should note that my mom made out like a bandit too. Thanks, Becca!

After knitting for a couple of hours, my mom and I headed over to the LYS where I picked up some sumptuous new yarns for upcoming projects.

Mmmm…my stash is growing quickly, but I don’t care; this is going to be so much fun!
