Do you know Sundara? Of course you do. She's that fabulous indie dyer who produces coveted skeins of yarn that go on sale and sell out immediately.
Well, back in 2006 (I feel weird that I have to say "back") I emailed Sundara to have her dye fire engine red yarn for a scarf I wanted to make my my dear brother, Drew. It was a Shifting Sands scarf, too.
I also bought a skein of her pure silk while making that order. All 1000 yards of it. I don't quite know what I had in mind then. It was probably something Eunny was making (how I miss her blog!). Alas, mine did not work out and I put the precious skein away for another day.
Enter Project Spectrum!
This is my first year actively particpating in Project Spectrum! The amazing Lolly has brought it out of retirement and I cannot wait to see what everyone creates. While I know so many others have big plans to try other crafts I'm going to keep it to my one true love: Knitting. What's more – I am going to use this as a reason to use my stash. Each month a different color – a different stashed yarn!
I'm about half way through the edging of my Rock Island shawl and can already tell this is gonna be one epic shawl.
