FLASH Your STASH! Soft, Sensuous, Sexy! :)



First up? Sock yarn...I have also purchased three books in an attempt to finally learn to knit socks. (Okay...one book I bought just for the patterns...) Maybe in the next century I'll get a pair made? >^..^< Oh! And that's 3 skeins of Himalayan Silk gifted me at Christmas...I may add it to the Ruana stash...haven't decided yet.

Then this lovely Jo Sharp Cotton in colorway Crete for Annie's Silk Corset KAL - button on the sidebar! I love this beigey-sagey color! My MFMPPF loves this pattern, and it's for HIS eyes ONLY! >^..^<

Yarn for 6 shawls - Merinos and Alpacas, then Peruvian Baby Cashmere...what a sensuous romp this was, pulling all these yarns together for the photo! (how many hits do you think that'll get me from Google?)

Below you'll see what I think of as my "find of the year" - vintage navy wool and camel yarn from France. I was lucky enough to find 12 skeins purchased by the friend of a friend who decided not to knit it! This is such luxurious yarn...just as soft and sexy as the ones above!


I also have 16 skeins of Berroco Cotton Twist that I frogged from Knitter's Sunset Wrap and am planning to use to make another Clapotis for DD. And I have some of Roxanne's lovely variegated yarn coming to make my OWN Clapotis with...(I frogged the first one I was making for DD out of Caron's Rainbow Dreams - it hurt my hands to knit with - has found a new home with Jane as she loves it! (I love finding new forever homes for cats, yarn, whatever!)

In my stash but not photoed are many skeins of lovely novelty yarns (I am NOT a snob) for making interesting scarves...when I get the time. And of course, much dishcloth cotton. Would YOU consider, taking a few moments a week to knock out one simple dishcloth? Hold onto it and build a stash? Because Cloths for Crisis is trying to plan ahead - we know there'll be a reason for our cloths in the future (hurricane season starts in two months!) and it would be lovely to already have some cloths made to begin to ship out immediately to those in need! (((hugs)))

WOW. That's some stash...and I didn't even show Ruana (I did that just a couple weeks or so ago...check my archives if you'd like to see?). I'm so glad I did this exercise. Maybe I won't feel such a need to buy yarn for a bit? Nnnnnnaaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwww. What fun is that? :)

you've got it all in nice little piles for the pictures. What does it really look like? Are you a neat person . . . or are you like me . . . is it scattered all over your house or piled a mile high in your closet?

Namaste

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
