So, I have decided that this will be the Summer of Stash for me. No, I am not joining the KAL. I have recently joined the KSKS (Knit Sock Kit Swap) and was in the Tea Swap and I am a secret pal. Any others I am forgetting?
What entails my stash shopping? Umm... I might have an amazing opportunity to purchase a new car at a VERY cheap price in December. Unfortunately, b/c it's such a great deal , I will have to do it in CASH. Simply, one of our corporate cars that is only used between our site in the Boston suburbs and Boston (it has less than 25k miles) will be for sale to me. :) For about 70% less than the blue book value. So, new car = no new yarn for a bit.
Also, another incentive... getting things knit. I have gone from knitter to yarn acquirer (note to SP: I love yarn... please feel free to send it, but I am talking very specifically about packs of yarn I have purchased for sweaters, etc.)
So, what am I going to knit? Besides socks? ( I have enough for a few pairs... sock yarn does NOT count as part of Stash... it's a rule.... ask Steph)
In orange. Just like the photo. :) I bought this lovely orange superwash at the Wild and Woolly sale LAST year
2. 3x chic
in green Rowan Cork
in green Cascade 220 (for my mom)
in Cascade 220 Superwash in two different blues (for PC's mom)
5. this aran for my dad ( I love this!)--- it's a pdf -you've been warned.
this will be in a dark blue Cascade 220 ... very nice!
So, I will be knitting these and some baby things along the way. I also need to finish PC's sweater. I know, I know... it was supposed to be done last summer. I am also looking to finish up the Bombshell sweater.
So, what am I taking camping?
1. Bombshell (this is an easy knit without looking pattern)
2. socks--- easy and portable!
There is also a "surprise" sweater that I am going to try my hand at designing. Yup, my first ever sweater design. :)
Oy... what have I gotten myself into?
Oh, the baby sweater is moving right along.... should be done this weekend!
