So, for anyone still reading I thought I’d take a little look in my stash, pick out a couple of my favourites and lay out my plans for them. This seems like something I can fall back on every now and again when I run out of blog fodder, because I do actually have a plan for pretty much everything in my stash.
Today I’ve picked two yarns, both of which I’ve had for a long time and have been destined to be a few things between them. I’m pretty settled on what I want to do with them now so maybe they’ll actually get the chance to be knitted soon.
This is Regia Color 4-ply in Papillon which I've had 2 balls of since Jan 2009. I remember buying it shortly after I started making my Flutterby socks thinking it would be a lovely yarn to use if I ever decided to knit that pattern again. I’m sure I will knit it again because I really like it, but with so many sock patterns out there I think it will be quite some time before I get round to it, so I’ve decided that this will be the perfect yarn to try out the Skew pattern from Knitty. I’ve loved this pattern since the day I first saw it and I love that it is not your usual sock pattern.Celtic (Rav link) from Rowan 40 I still quite like this cardigan, but years have gone by and I’ve never got round to starting it and I don’t think I ever will. When I saw Olivia in Kim Hargreaves Thrown Together I immediately realised that this would be a much better use of my Felted Tweed. Clearly I haven’t got round to casting on for that yet either, but I will. One day.
