Hi there! How're you doing on this hump day?
Thank you for your comments on the chameleon colors. It's so refreshing to work with these colors. It's also exciting to have an excuse to hook a ripple.
Have any of you been following WEBS on FB and their 31 Days of Organizing? One blog I read is and I'm having a brain fart right now as I can't remember who - sorry. While I'm not on that bandwagon, I have been working on inventorying my yarn stash. Some time ago I kind of inventoried it but was lazy and schlepped all the colors of a type of yarn together. So yesterday I spent about two hours taking photos of my yarn of each colorway/brand type. Today, I worked on my Ravelry stash page. I'm about done but there is yarn that I've bought that have yet to be filed into my stash.
And now for...
So guess what I'm working with:
Yup, you've guess right. Rowan's Kidsilk Haze.
I knitted with this furry thread when I was a beginning knitter. Mind you how naive I was when I had bought it. I had spotted it while waiting to pay for my yarn and was all oohing and ahing over it while petting it. Very adventurous I was but oh boy, somewhat stupid. It was so frustrating. I wanted to burn this yarn back in 2009! But amazingly, I was able to finish that lacy cowl pattern for our mortgage broker who loves it and makes great use of it.
I've seen on Ravelry time to time simple st patterns used with yarn like this. A lightbulb went on. Since I have a resolution to try to knit from my stash, I pulled this out last week and started a K1, P1 cowl:
I'm about 10" in so far as last Friday's jury duty enabled me to work on this.
BTW, this is actually a gift for someone who reads this blog.
So what's the craziest yarn you've crafted with?
