I have as much guilt about the size of my stash as anyone… so when my mother announced that she was going to knit her new sweater in a yarn I just happened to have six balls of, I was happy to donate the four balls that enabled her to get going (because as everyone knows, when you want to knit a new thing, You Want To Knit It NOW!). Worry about buying the rest later.
And finishing off the latest sweater for the Bear (well within the time limits of Single Skein September)
has reduced the Enormous Ball of Yarn to something more manageable.
Though there’s probably still enough in there for at least three hats or something.
This is the last-but-one pair of socks from the sockyarn stash:Which means that my sockyarn scarf will be able to have another couple of colours added to its stripes (this picture really doesn’t do it justice).
Then there’s the baby blanket to finish (which is going to have to become a present for someone because the Bear has outgrown her cot-sized blankets):
And then there’s the laceweight stash. There’s a lot of shawls in there.
So I suppose I’ve got plenty to be getting on with.
