I have a few projects that I’m working on right now. Most of the stuff I’m working on is in an attempt to de-stash my collection in anticipation of moving. I hate the idea but I don’t have much in the line of options. I have a stupid amount of yarn and it’s not all fancy yarn. I’m talking about 12 of the big 18 gallon totes full of yarn. I’m looking into those ziplock vacuum bags to see if I can condense some of it. I think I’m going to sell my wire cube storage system for the yarn because I don’t think I’m going to need it when I move.
Anyway, back to the projects. I’m making a boom shawl for one of my friends. I’m using Caron Cakes yarn in the Bumbleberry colorway. I really love how quick it’s working up. I got the pattern on Ravelry. I can’t believe how quick it knits. I think my friend is really going to love it. I think it will be a very warm shawl.
I’m also making a scarf for another one of my friends. I’m using Caron Cakes in the Berries and Cream colorway. I wanted to make him something a little more masculine. I showed him the yarn I was planning of using and he loved the blues and greys together. It has a very nice cable to it. It’s a lot of work but I love how it’s turning out so far.
I think I’m going to make a wrap for myself. Probably with Caron Cakes as well. I have a lot of that yarn. Might as well use it on something. I’m saving the good hand-dyed stuff for special projects. Everything else I don’t feel bad about making random projects with. I just hope I can get some of this yarn used.
So, this begs this question. Does anyone else have a yarn stash so big it likely exceeds your life expectancy?
