Busting the Stash in Lemming Style

Posted on 25, March 2009 by


As of late I finished another scarf for my former co-workers at Verdasys. I had dropped it off at the office and I do hope that RichM enjoys it as much as I had in making it. In celebration of this finished object, I am now swatching the candidates for the various sweaters.

There are several groups on Ravelry which have creative ways of diminishing one’s stash of yarn. One of the groups is the “ISO (In Search Of) and Destash” forum where over 7000 folks can sell or trade their yarn for other similar items. Not only do I have the pleasure of being the founder and administrator of this group, but I also meet tons of people who become dear friends. Because of the ISO/DS group, I have been able to increase my own stash with multitudes of “Stash Enhancement eXperiences” (aka SEX in web-knitting terminology) and now I must put my SABLE (stash acquired beyond life expectancy) status of stash to good use.
Kelly's Stole
In the spirit of the Stash Knit Down 2009‘s Personal Sock Club KAL, instead of pairing up sock yarn and patterns I am pulling out the WIPs and completing them. Last month’s WIP was Ryan’s baby blanket, February’s WIP was Kelly’s Jeanie scarf, and March’s main WIP was the gorgeous stole that I made for Kelly’s 40th birthday. Here’s hoping she likes it! Finally we have a pair of Emily’s Lost socks, courtesy of Melissa Morgan-Oakes. These pretties were knitted up with Yarntini Sport in the Lost Numbers colorway. LUV!!! =:8
