…and a lot of other stuff, too!

Stash Diving

Cherry Tree Hill Oceania, Monet colorway, green, yellow, pink

So this evening I went through most of my yarn bins. I took pictures of a lot of stuff to upload it on Ravelry. On one hand, I was comforted to find that my stash was not as vast as most people think it is. But on the other hand, I have lots of single skeins of things that I have no idea what I’m going to do with it.

In this photo is one of my favorites. It’s Cherry Tree Hill Oceania. I bought it about two years ago, when there was this half off sale so I got a really good deal on it. Of course I have no idea what to do with it.

Along the way there was a small pile of UFOs that I rediscovered for possible finishing. There were even a few that I kissed goodbye, including a French Market Bag that I had started with some leftover oddballs that didn’t really go together, and a mini triangular scarf out of some leftover Noro Silk Garden.

The Silk Garden yarn had been used to make a Knit Round Scarf by Sally Melville. (The link takes you to the book at Knit Picks. If you click the “View More Images” button from that page, you’ll see the scarf in the second group of pictures. It actually looks more like a wrap to me…) Anyway, I made it, but was totally unhappy with it being totally in stockinette stitch and then being all curly on the edges. I changed the neckline to a ribbing, but the bottom edge still rolls of course. Well I couldn’t just throw it out because it was made with such expensive yarn and all. Well, Diana, who was probably only 6 or 7 at the time that I made it is now almost 12 and the thing looks just darling on her! Glad I found it today. I’ll have to snap a photo of her wearing it and post it so y’all can see. Diana was so excited that she wove in the remaining ends herself.

We also found a scarf that she liked that only needed ends weaved in and some fringe added. So she started on that, too! So not all of my UFOs are lost causes. Yay!
