As we know, I am currently working on a goal of knitting from stash (as are many other bloggers this year!)
I thought it might be interesting to look at some of the yarns in my stash and think about why I haven't done anything with them yet *laughs* Hopefully it'll give me a kick to get round to using them ;)
This is the oldest stashed item I think. 3 balls of superwash sock yarn. I'd bought it to make a capelet thing from Vampire Knits, before realising that I would never wear a capelet! I'll probably use it to make socks at some point, but I have much more exciting sock yarn in my stash, so who knows when this may see the light of day!
2 skeins of 100% silk, in a greeny-grey colour. It is gorgeous, and I had started making a scarf with it but it went wrong and I gave up on it. I have a pattern queued for this, ready for when I want to make a silk scarf.
100% alpaca DK in a lovely dusky purple. I originally bought 5 balls of this, which wasn't really enough to do anything with. I have now acquired another 3 (in the same dyelot no less) so I now have enough to make a v-neck vest, which is what I wanted to do in the first place *laughs* This will probably be the next garment I cast on.
100% bamboo (apparently!) that I got from ebay. As it is from Hong Kong, I don't have much information to go on as the label is not in English, so I need to try and measure how much I have. As it is a lighter yarn, this will definitely have to wait until warmer weather.
Sock yarn, won in a swap in June. I think I'm hesitating on this one because I want to make interesting socks but I'm stumped as to what pattern might work with the colours in the yarn.
My lovely llama yarn, bought at knit nation. I do have a plan for this, and nearly started it a while ago. But the pattern calls for a lot of 2x2 rib, and I was working on my mum's ribbed cardigan at the time and couldn't face another one!
And my Wollmeise. I'm wavering on what to knit with this. Whether I go for luxury socks, a shrug, a wrap... I don't want to make the wrong decision!
Of course, I have plenty of other stashed yarn awaiting action too, but these were the ones that jumped out at me this morning ;)
