Now, I may not pick up Stash each week, but maybe I will showcase past stash enhancements on weeks I am good and don’t buy yarn. For the first installment I start with the 1st skeins of yarn I purchased in 2017.
Lion Brand Wool Ease: I purchased a skein of Wool-Ease for a chemo cap for our friend. I am not usually a fan of Wool-Ease, but it does serve a function when easy care is needed. I wanted a bright blue to represent University of Kentucky, since the recipient and I share of love for UK Basketball. This Blue Heather 620-107 was the closet I could get. UK blue is a brighter shade.
I found that this skein was surprisingly more soft and comfortable to knit with than the last skeins of Wool-Ease I used. It didn’t bother me at all to knit. And the look on the face of the recipient, in the photo they sent me, was enough to know it is comfortable to him.
Pattern: Cambridge Watchcap
The best part? On Sale at JoAnn’s so it only cost me $3.60. A small price for such a great return!
So Stash confession:
Starting Stash on hand – 63,980 yards
Knitted Stash – 327 yards
Stash Added – 197 yards
Ending Stash 1-7-2017: 63,850 yards. Whew, at least it’s less.
Ordered, but not yet here is something I have wanted to do for a long time. And for some reason I just never went the full mile. I would look and create, but never hit commit. Well, yesterday I committed! I create a very basic woven label, on cream with apple green lettering. I ordered “chrisknitssews” labels!!!!! Now I will have labels to sew into all those baby items I will be making over the coming weeks/months. So excited!
So, have you enhanced your stash this week? Do tell!
