This morning I had a little play with my stash. Specifically my lace and sock weight stash. I put all my new purchases in the box and took out two stashed DK weights large enough for a jumper. I ended up with this box of delights.
During my reorganisation, I realised I had THIS Mille Colori:
And that the orange in it matched the orange silk/ baby camel yarn I bought from The Knitting Goddess during her recent sale…
This is the ‘beginning’! I’ve placed the yarn and needles in my new project bag:
The ‘end’ is that I have finished the blue lace shawl, given it a bath in some Eucalan and blocked it out. I’ve pinned the scallops fairly aggressively but left the top edge to gently pull into a crescent shape.
I did another eight rows on Hitchhiker today. That’s the ‘still not finished yet’. The Schoppelwolle was about to go blue, pink, blue again, so I wound on so it’ll go green next. I only have another 8 points to go so I wanted a little balance in the project!
So happy we have another day off tomorrow!
