Day One

What's on my needles? Bobble shirt in a slightly different color scheme. Well, a completely different color scheme.

What's my stash like? I'm going to guess I have 64 skeins/balls of new yarn. Maybe I'll count them tomorrow to see how far I'm off. I've probably greatly underestimated. (Husband, don't read that).

And that's not counting the 4 skeins of Lorna's Laces Worsted for a clapotis, or the 7 skeins of Cascade 220 (felted bag from pickup sticks) on its way from

Better not read that either, dear.

FO's this year include a baby blanket that just...would...not...die from Sarah Dallas Knitting. Man, that thing just went on and on. It took me about three weeks to finish. One of my longest projects.

Also finished is a Seraphim shawl, still waiting to be blocked as I don't have a blocking board yet. But I guess I'd better get one because the shawl is for my Gram's 90th birthday in August.

I honestly can't remember what else I've done this year--probably some socks, a few scarves maybe. Must document better.

And now for a dirty little secret. So many knitters talk about the yarn stash. Well, what about the book stash, hmmmm? Magazines anyone? Loose patterns floating around? Those babies are REAL easy to hide.

Time to fess up everyone. Flaunt that pattern stash too!

And if I have the guts, I'll do it on my next post. Cause day one? She's done.
