DSC03017Thank you for all of the links and ideas you gave for excess yarn, in Friday’s comments.

(Wait. I’m not sure “excess yarn” is even a phrase that ought to be uttered. Is there any such thing? I think not. Let’s call it “stash overflow.”  

Wait. Is there such a thing as an overflow of stash? That’s probably not a good phrase, either. Let’s call it “yarn I’d like to pass on to a good cause.”  Yeah. I can live with that.)

So thank you for all of the links for recipients of yarn that we want to pass on to a good cause. I didn’t make it through my stash this weekend, but it’s on my list. I DID make it through my closet this weekend and the whole household thanks me. Or maybe it’s Goodwill that thanks me. I just know that I can actually get into the closet again, and that’s a good thing.

We just did our Monday Night Re-stock – did you catch it?  You might’ve caught some of The Sanguine Gryphon Skinny Bugga on there for a minute. (ahem). We also put up Shibui Sock and Silk Cloud, Jojoland, Dream in Color Classy and Smooshy (including Classy Flame Season – that limited edition colorway you’ve been waiting for), Fiesta Boomerang and Ballet, and Cherry Tree Hill Supersock Select.

I haven’t knit in a week. I guess there have just been too many other things going on. I have 3 socks that only have about 2″ left to knit, and I have those two shawls that I’m really motivated to cast on. Yarn caked and everything. I hope that I can come up with some time this week to work on these things. What’s the longest time you’ve gone without knitting? (Actually, mine would be 24 years. From age 16 to age 40. That was a long dry spell….)
