Ed and I are in the process of cleaning out our laundry room/storage area. It's kind of a long, somewhat big space and we are going to try to turn half of it into a craft studio for me and all my craft stuff. Boy, do I have a lot of craft stuff!
The other night I started to go through my yarn stash and I became pretty embarrased of myself… Seriously, my stash is a bit out-of-hand. Now, let's be real, I can't stop buying yarn completely but I think I can be a little more proactive about it. For example I've decieded that I should try a '3 to 1' approach. Knit 3 things from my stash, and then knit 1 thing with new yarn. What do you think? Does it sound like a good and fesable approach? I'm feeling pretty good about it and already started a 'stash' based project. I've casted on for Coachella from Knitty. I'm using Berroco, Metallic FX from my stash and so far I think it's looking pretty cool. OK, I know it looks like I'm knitting a pair of underware here (HA!), but if you look at the pattern you'll see where I'm at. It's knit from the top down and the constuction is pretty interesting.
I'm still working on my "Knitting Quota" and here's the progress on my Vertical Stripes hat out of Itty-Bitty Hats. Thankfully I have a ton of yarn for baby hats in my stash too!
