stashbusters...

Committing oneself to a yarn diet is enough to put an obsessed witty knitter into withdrawal. I keep saying to myself, "I have will power", over and over again, as I stand next to the new shipment of Noro at TIK.

I call upon my good and practical self, and spend an hour or two searching through my yarn stash. Ahh haaa....I come across an unidentifiable yarn...I picked it up at a garage sale several years ago, no ball band, looks and feels like fancy acrylic.

I picked up a set of 5mm Addi's, and started knitting a hat...
hmmmm not bad...knits up as a chunky, dense, and fuzzy hat. I actually like the colours, it reminds me of a watercolour pallette.

Oh yeah...I'm a stashbuster!

But what do you do with all the little odd bits which are leftovers from larger projects?

Diane said...

davimack, all the bits and fluff are place on a zip lock baggie, just waiting....

DaviMack said...

Yes ... mine as well. I was wondering if you'd something fabulous to do with them. :)

Love the fuzzy watercolour hat.
I wish we had a knitting club down here in Co Leitrim, I'd be there in a flash .. if they catered for complete beginners!
Thanks for visiting my blog ... I'm sure you'd survive in the rurals no problem!
