If someone went to Ireland/Scotland/England and brought you 5 skeins of yarn as a Thank You gift for watching dogs, does it count towards stash? Asking for a friend.
If someone called and asked you to make them pouches and you bought 5 yards of fabric to make said pouches, does it count towards stash? Also asking for a friend.
I mean, it makes you wonder if these hypothetical events would happen, how do you handle the recording of it.
Confession time, I’m the friend, and I am soooooo happy!!! Here’s the haul.
Kerry Woolen Mills Aran in dark green and blue, Studio Donegal Donegal Aran Tweed in the colors of the Irish Flag apparently. The sales clerk asked my sister if she was going to knit a flag. LOL! The red/Japanese style fabrics are for 2 bags, the poppy fabrics/accent pieces will make 8 bags.
OK, now to the FO!!! Another finished Zig Zag lace Shoulder Showl!!
This is for Diva. The yarn is Berocco Cosma; Alpaca, Wool, Silk blend, Sportweight in Taihu, a pretty gray. I made this version with 5 Zig Zag Lace sections. The pattern will be written for cowl, shorter showl, and longer showl, basically 3, 4, or 5 sections of the lace. I wished I had been able to get a little more garter at the bottom, but this is all the yarn I had left after the bind off. No way I could have gotten even 1 more row with that. I will amend the pattern to eliminate the last 2 increases for the longer showl length, it really doesn’t need the fullness and that way 500 yards of yarn will be enough.
I hope it brings a smile to her face. She called the other day, upset at a friend’s betrayal. What is it with young women? Why can’t they just cut out the drama. Both girls hate drama and much prefer to be friends with guys. Although BioGirl has had better luck in college with friends, Diva has not. Hurts this Momma’s heart! Her best friend lives in North Carolina and they just don’t get to see each other enough.
