First, here are a couple of finished projects:
The Nostalgic Ear-Flap Hat from a Churchmouse Yarns and Teas newsletter (I added a brim).
and my first (and second) Monster (and baby) from Rebecca Danger's pattern.
This monster and her baby are in a box right now headed for Missoula, MT and a little girl's first birthday.
The other thing I'm doing is archiving my stash on Ravelry. I was inspired by a Knit 'N Needle shoppe thread of people taking pictures of their stash. I took one overall picture that looked like a bunch of plastic bags
and then I started taking pictures in earnest.
|Sock yarn from Needlework Unlimited in Minneapolis;|
|Manos del Uruguay kettle-dyed wool from Knit 'N Needle in Whitefish;|
|Noro Kureyon from Knit 'N Needle, I think;|
|Even more of the silk/mohair than I thought I had;|
|Remember this Icelandic wool from Harris? I think it may have come from Ram Wools. And why won't it post right-side up? Dagnabbit, contrary Blogger!|
Of course, all that is only a smidgeon of what I have. And then, since I know you'll be in ND, Nancy dear, why don't you take a picture of your stash for us to gloat over? Because I find that I can gloat over someone else's stash. I suppose you'll have a yarn stash and a fabric stash. Which is bigger?
Oh - and if someone thinks you're wasting your time, just think how handy it would be for insurance purposes - because it's amazing how many dollars we crafters have stashed in our stashes! It's like E and her stuffies. : )
