I have an idea….

IMG_8023

Although we are not even halfway thought the month of May I have come up with  an idea for my May challenge. I had thought about it earlier in the year but it had fallen by the wayside.

I am cruising along on a the test knitting even though I am multitasking with  trying to spin as much fiber as I can get my hands on.  With a new kind of stash growing I have decided that  for the month of June it is all going to be about working with yarn and fiber that is on the main floor of my house. I think a “Stash busting it Down Downstairs” seem appropriate, Best of all if I make a dent it will make me less self conscious when I have non knitters over to my house.

I suppose I should explain how I even have a stash of fiber downstairs. It started that it would be a holding area for projects that would be next up……(Yeah I suppose that is still partially true) but it has kind of bloomed in to something else entirely.

So for the remaining month of May and June I am going to do my best to work thought as many skeins, partials, and, batts and braids as possible.  As always I am going to make it a game and see how many skeins I can work through. There is a rough outline of what I can accomplish in this month and a half in my mind so it will be interesting if this  a struggle or a sprint:

  • Finish test knitting
  • Finish the One Big Granny Square Blanket by Churchmouse Yarns and TeasIMG_7342
  • Cedar Grove Shawl by Judy Marples
  • See how far the 1 skein of yarn gets me on Veera V. sweater
  • The sweater in question...
    The sweater in question…
  • Maybe cast on a some stuff I have already swatched
  • If desperate make another hat
  • If I really want to dig the bottom of the barrel pick up my Funky Grandpa by Rillie and figure out “why my stitch count went cuckoo for Cocopuffs”

  1. You inspired me to organize and use of some of my small skeins but nothing finished yet. I am trying to make a few hats with small skeins. I have way to many little bits. Can’t wait to see what you complete. Ive cast on a few new project and easy one to take in car while hubby is driving and not spend to much time on rav.
