One of THOSE days!

I just said to my husband, "where has the day gone?" His response was :" you spent the day knitting". But I have nothing to show for it. Do you ever have one of those days when you frog just as much as you knit? Well, that was my day today. I wound lots of yarn. First I was trying a new technique on the knitting machine and after three tries of it not working it was time to quit. then I knit an entire vest from "Knitters" magazine. And it was awful! Ugly and heavy, more like a blanket than an item of clothing. So to the frog pond it went. Now to think about what to knit tomorrow. :-) How was your Sunday???

Happy New Year / Happy Stash Busting!

My goal for this year is to stash bust! I know many of us set this goal each year. I am going to post about my stash in order to hold myself accountable.

Here is my start to 2011.
A felted hat. Used an entire skein of worsted weight wool. It is now my favorite hat as it is quite cozy and warm. It also does a great job of keeping my ear buds in place while hiking with the dog.
The Market Vest. Now, I had to purchase some yarn in order to use up stash yarn, so I basically break even on this one. But, I love it!

And lastly, I used the rest of the yarn left from the vest to make a felted bowl. It's cute, pretty and not very functional. I'll most likely use it as a "drop" spot for knitting stuff.
Well, I hope you enjoyed my stash busting, I hope to post quite often this year as I would love to actually put into use some of my gorgeous stash yarns. They really don't do me much good sitting in a box. I may even find some that I will post for sale, so keep your eyes open.
Have a Wonderful 2011!
