I thought stash enhancement posts were perfect blog content…turns out, Cold Sheeping (aka going on a yarn diet) is not one of my special powers. I add yarn to the stash so frequently, I’d never get any knitting posts in. So here’s a recap! I’m pretty excited about all of these yarns!
First up…I’m enjoying my Batad, loving the Juniper Moon Farms Zooey. It’s a 60/40 cotton-linen blend which is perfect for summer! Not sure what I’m going to do with it yet, it was an impulse acquisition…the green was a late arrival. I had to have it and it needed a friend so two purple guys came along too!
I’m also pretty excited about my rainbow skirt so I’ve got another skirt planned! This time I’m thinking some gradient striping with a touch of feather and fan at the bottom. The yarn is Kathmandu Chunky because CASHMERE! This yarn is so amazing when it’s blocked. It’s sadly discontinued, so this was a bit of a knee jerk stash addition, I may not get to knitting it for a while but I’m happy it’s here!
I’ve taken on a yarnbombing project. It’s in it’s infancy so you’ll have to wait on details but here’s the yarn! Red Heart Super Saver, an inexpensive, utilitarian yarn for this project. I do sort of love the colors.
Last, and certainly, in no way, not least…Superior Cashmere! I love this stuff as a second strand to soften up other yarns but I’ve gotten hooked on the idea of knitting it single stranded on a large needle! Enter Coco Knits’ Sabine…an amazing lightweight cashmere cardigan! A cardigan that can squish into a pocket!?! Sign me up! I’ve been dreaming of the swatches…this is going to happen soon, very soon!!
