I've learned so much about knitting and creativity over the past 12 months, and I have each of you to thank for that. Even my mistakes and failures have inspired me although I'll admit that I have suffered with grumpy needles when that has happened.
To mark my anniversary, I decided to take stock and re-visit my stash and needles. Okay, I'm a neat freak/organization geek and proud of it. Over the last couple of days, I spent time photographing my

I've come to only one conclusion: I need to knit down my stash and as an anniversary challenge to myself, I will be knitting one-to-two skein projects until my stash is down to a reasonable inventory. Let's see, I have 79 stashed skeins as of today so my goal will be to knit 12% of my stash (12 for each month that I've been blogging) which means that I need to knit 9.48 skeins of yarn. I'll round that up to 10!
I'll cast on my first project tomorrow and welcome your favorite one-to-two skein pattern recommendations. I'm open to all levels of knitting: easy peasy to mind-boggling difficult. My hope is to get at least 10 different recommendations but if I get more, I may just keep this challenge going beyond my initial goal. Thanks, everyone!
