Knitting Down the Stash and Other Fantasies

My yarn stash has become almost an embarrassment.  With over 500 skeins in my possession it's time to take action.  I have created a thread in one of my yarn groups to help me with my zealous endeaver to knit down my stash.

Here is how I am proceeding - choose a yarn then find a pattern for it.  I have some yarns in more or less a grab bag, so I will choose one and begin.

Wish me luck!

Purple Love's It - I am Happy

My friend Elaine received the healing shawl and she loves it!  I am so happy to have made her day.  She means the world to me and it was but a small token of my friendship.

Wishing her a speedy recovery!

Plugging away but still not at the finish line

Still working on the Doublish shawlwette.  ::sigh::  had to rip back 10 rows because of a mistake, but I'm back on track.  I so hope to finish over the weekend.

My friend Kathy sent me this today, and it's worth sharing since my life is in such upheaval right now:

“Sometimes this human stuff is slimy and pathetic…but better to feel it and talk about it and walk through it than to spend a lifetime being silently poisoned.” ~Anne Lamott

 Off to knit.

I'm knitting so fast I might fall.....

I am working on a project for someone near and dear to me.  I hope I can finish this scarf/shawlette in a week or so.  My friend is having neck surgery and I want to present her with a soft, pretty scarf she can wear while she is healing.

So many projects, so little time.
