Hmmm, my posts of late make it seem that instead of knitting, I've been spending all my time frogging and returning yarns to my stash. There are so many of you who are writing about working through your stash and some of you extremists out there are even trying to stay on a yarn diet!
As my family knows, I could open my own LYS right here in my house but that doesn't stop me from adding to my wonderful stash. Whenever I come across a sale or a custom color, I find it hard to resist just picking up one little skein (or two ... alright, even three).
But in my defense (not that I'm ever defensive about supporting yarn stores or indie companies), I can make tough decisions, too. I haven't yet frogged this cardigan but will when I next have a solid hour or so to tackle it -- remember, it took twelve skeins! I did frog this project though when it became obvious that the pattern just wasn't working out.
While I was sad to see so much work unravel, it was also satisfying to see this pretty yarn become these lovely cakes again.
I have two more skeins in addition to these three cakes so there's plenty to cast on for a pullover or shrug or large shawl. This isn't a color I would typically wear but it's such nice yarn and spring is almost here. I'm always looking for new patterns suggestions so feel free to inspire me!
