I spent the winter knitting sweaters and socks, projects which were deeply satisfying and gave me the chance to knit down my stash. But then there lies my new problem ... a stash of single skeins. As I went stash diving the other day to get inspired for a new project, I couldn't help but feel a little frustrated ~ don't get me wrong, I love the yarns I've bought or been gifted over the years but it can be tough to find patterns for a mere 220 yards of this or 300 yards of that.
I came across this beautiful skein of Cephalopod Bugga in the Sharpshooter Leafhopper colorway, and I got all excited about its possibilities. I've been thinking about knitting a Martina Behm design and have my eye on this little pretty thing. Now that we're finally experiencing some spring-like weather, I think some shawl knitting is in order.
If you have a favorite one-skein shawl pattern to suggest, I'd love to start firing up my queue!
P.S. I just hopped down the instagram rabbit hole ... what an adventure!
