Knitting Up A Storm!

Wednesday, January 17, 2007

Come on guys - I can't believe I didn't get one single comment regarding my last post about my newly organized mitts and hats solution. Am I the only one that thinks it is a great idea? It isn't mine, but I thought I'd share. Oh well, I'll enjoy it none the less.

Reading through the blogs I like to read, I find a similar pattern - everyone is trying to reduce the amount of stash they have. All I have to say is GOOD LUCK. I look at mine, organize the list, try to find ways to get the total under 200 balls, then I go and buy more yarn. I know I am not the only one in this boat. So, this year it is going to be different. I will not buy any more yarn until the count is under 199, then all bets are off! I have my eye on some Rowan Baby Soft in a very light baby green at the Naked Sheep.

To reach this goal, I am going to be knitting up scarves, and more scarves, because a lot of the yarn can only be used to knit scarves. Do I need more scarves? Hell, no - but this plan will get me on my way to my goal so I can buy those precious balls of love.

BTW - my toe up sock is coming along quite nicely. The toe shaping is down and I'm working on the foot. I think this is a very quick method, once you get the hang of the short row shaping.

Have a good one.
