I was hopping around some links from the FO Friday gathering and came across a StashBuster Challenge 2013 link. It looks like a great idea, so I'm joining in...
Step one feels a bit like going to an AA meeting: "Hi, my name's Lorna and I'm a yarnaholic. It's been 2 months since my last yarn purchase"
Step two is to take some pictures of my stash. Most of it is tucked away in the wardrobe in our spare room. Some of it is even in proper boxes:
So... here's some of the detail:
Back in the early days I started a granny square in some acrylic dk yarns from a local shop. I kind of fell out with it, but perhaps I can find a way to like it again.
And finally, this is an example of the non-boxed yarns. Hiding in here are some forgotten balls of Rowan 4-ply wool and some lovely soft sock yarn (3 skeins) which I bought to make a light blanket with. I've decided that probably won't work, but I haven't decided what to do instead - maybe I need to buy some more in a different colourway to get a nice combination (no! mustn't buy anything more!)
There's more than this (including a number of giveaways from magazines), but these are the main culprits for now...
I have a couple of more special yarns to think about though: 4 skeins of Debbie Bliss Paloma, and 2 of Manos del Uruguay Silk Blend. I don't want to waste these, but I do want to use them so I'm looking for some good ideas for these first.
