Get me some Beads cause I’m flashing my Stash!

I almost forgot what day it was.  Actually, if it wasn’t for a phone call from my principal wishing me a happy "Ash Wednesday" a day early, I would have gone this whole week without a second thought.  The Marti Gras person within me is taking full advantage of the day called Fat Tuesday in which Catholics around the world are indulging themselves for one last night before the great fasting time that is Lent.

What was thought of as a small box of small yarns ‘here and there’ has turned out to be a great wealth of yarn that has simply been out of sight out of mind.  Perhaps I should reconsider that whole Knit from your Stash idea…. yeah… nahhhh.

Rowan Wool Cotton

I have about 7+ balls of Rowan Wool Cotton that I had originally planned for a Blanket Cardigan for my dear sweet mom (hi mom!).  I may finish it or I might rip it depending on what she wants and also if I can get the Ali pattern without having to buy all the yarn that could go with it.  Oh please email me back, Kim Hargreaves!

Brown Sheep Bulky

Here we have a lovely array of green shades of Brown Sheep Bulky which is supposed to be used for a Felted Board that I saw in Alterknits. Not so sure that will be it’s destiny, I’m thinking hats now.

Foxfire Fiber

Ahh the gorgeous Foxfire Fiber that is currently becoming de-stashed with my recent knit, Cherie.  It’s just pretty to look at and touch. It’s about time I got this Rheinback acquisition on the needles.

Yarn Guts

Ahh and the bag of yarn that time forgot.  It actually looks quite terrible in there will all the guts of different yarns mixed together.  I like to give that bag a shake every once in a while to see what yarns come to the top.  I think there’s an unfinished sock in there somewhere. There’s also a wonderful bin of other-yarns-I-did-not-feel-like photographing.  In
there is some Manos, a few Socks that Rock hanks, some Brown Sheep
Cotton Fleece for a Green Gable or two.  Oh and some Regia Silk for a shawl, but not sure which one, and other odds and ends.

Lastly comes my final great indulgence before I take a mini time out from yarn purchases.  It helps when you have a LYS readily willing to make special orders.  This is my yarn for Glee, and yes people I love to splurge – beautiful and soft Brown Sheep Alpaca Silk.  I cannot stop touching it. (Oh Dana, it’s time you get your yarn too!)

Blue Sky Alpaca Silk

What can I say?  Looking at all these yarns does make me feel a little guilty but I know I’ll find them loving homes with either patterns I’m knitting or perhaps my very first stash sale.  For now, hand me a burger and some margaritas cause this girl is loving her stash and is not afraid to show it.

    Hey, I knit that Blanket Cardigan! What a pain…er, FUN thing to knit and finish! And good luck wheedling pattern-sans-yarn out of Kim. Hmmm…remember when yesterday I said I was scheming about something? Well, it’s about ordering 3 of the Kim Hargreaves kits… they’re just a wee bit expensive–now, I just need to narrow down which *one* I want the most. Ali’s pretty cute, but I have my eye on another…
