As I've posted before, my stash is now getting a little larger than expected *laughs*
I like having my stash, and I'm very happy with the new storage I have, it's a lot neater than just having the box. But I do seem to keep procuring more yarn and not using up what I have. I'd like to start knitting from my stash a little bit, if only because I bought the yarns in it for a reason! I like them and want to knit with them ;) So I will try and do so.
So, in a fit of organisation (unlike me, I know!) I have assigned projects to most of my stash on ravelry. I now have a nice queue of patterns to make, each allocated to a particular yarn in my stash. Now, I'm not going to say "the plan is..." because every time I say that, I immediately deviate from the plan! But at least I have an idea of what each yarn will end up being.
I have one caveat, I will be buying new yarn at Knit Nation, with no defined pattern plans *grins* There's just no point telling myself otherwise.
Before I can start on my new queue, I do need to finish my current WIPs. The Clapotis is top priority, as it has a deadline. But I still have an unfinished sock, my green cotton top, my mermaid scarf and my cabled bag. Having too many WIPs annoys me, so I don't want to cast anything else on until some of the others are cleared down.
I have decided, with a heavy heart, to frog the mermaid scarf *sad eyes* The mistake in it is confusing - I can't work out where I went wrong in order to fix it. I also don't really need a DK weight silk scarf right now, and would rather work on things that I do want to have.
The cabled bag shouldn't really take too long to finish, nor should the sock (although the jury is out on whether I will start the second sock right away or start on boyfriend's socks instead). The green top is taking forever, it's 4 ply and cotton, and I don't really enjoy knitting it. I haven't done anything on it for a while, so I will see how I get on next time I pick it up. If I still really don't enjoy the process, I will have to consider hibernating it or frogging it. As much as I want the product, life's too short to force myself to knit something I don't want to!
So, organisation of my plans for my stash and my plans for my WIPS complete... Just gotta get through the damn Clapotis now!
