It happened to me too

I read tales on other people's blog about finding yarn in their stash they have forgotten about. I always thought that either I have not such a big stash or I am good with my documentation. In fact I have taken pics of my stash.
Well, think again.
I am making a tank top from Debbie Bliss' The Baby Knits Book, with some leftover from this project. It is for one of my new nieces, whom I am going to meet for the first time in few weeks. She has an older brother and I would like to make a tank top for him too, in blue cotton. Finding nice cotton in a nice boy color is not easy, and I even discuss the matter with HoJo who offered to order what I needed from her new store.
See this yarn here? Would you think that I have one ball of Pima Tencel in white and one ball of Pima Melage in blue? Well, I thought so too before diving in my cherry chest to find out that I have two balls of Pima Tencel in white and three balls of Pima Melage in blue. So the white is becoming Pistachio as I type and the blue is going to be a tank top.
Love diving into stash!
But what I love even more is to receive yarn, and look what I got today from the wonderful Kirsten:

Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock

Lorna's Laces already winded up in two balls and ready to go, with needles and book of patterns!

  1. I'll still look for some boy colors. After all I signed a 10 year lease :}. Did you see the karoake heart handle blog on Jonelles' blog?

    I've already emailed to her about how much Princess costs-a-lotta and I need this. I think your principessa needs one too!


Got something to say?
