Flashing Just like a Sorority Girl
April 1st is
Flash Your Stash:
click on the link for the real down and dirty
is there any doubt why I need the Stash-Along?
this doesn't include my coned yarns for weaving, and the last few pics I didn't get after my camera battery died.
Donations and Prizes:
I'm going to be perusing the stashes flashed today, per the Flash your Stash links
and plan to award a prize - from this stash - to the stash that appears to be the neediest. This is a purely subjective decision on my part - but, if you think you have a needy stash and want me to look, leave a comment with a link to your flash
Stash a Long click on link yada yada
per the rules of the stashalong, which I've volunteered to play by and follow.
For the next 60 days (thereafter in 30 day increments - all bets are off if I can get even a day at Convergence in July, and get to Stitches Midwest in August), I digress,
60 days, knit from stash, no stash enhancement - none, nada, zip, zero, zilch.
my goal: to reduce my stash over the next 60 days by 5% - knit it, sell it, or give it away.
yup, I know how many skeins I have, so I know what 5% is. Not telling here.
note: I count yarn as stash until it is knit off the needles. Hence, when I Finish Colchique, I get to reduce my stash by 12 skeins. Not until then. So, 5% is doable. I have 78 skeins currently involved in projects that are on the needles. Makes me shudder to think of it.
Gyrid - will knit off needles this weekend. Def will be done in time for Knit the Classic Life of Pi project deadline
Drops Cardi - ready to cast on just as soon as Gyrid is done
Orangina - casting on today ;)
everything else is same as last week.
Not all my stash is Yarn - in fact, my fabric stash makes my yarn look like childs play.
Mind you I've been sewing, and collecting beautiful fabrics, all my life. Most of the most fabulous pieces that I have have been from periods when I've had more $ and inclination, than time, so I bought for the day when my avail time would exceed my ability to buy. The time has come.
