One Woman. One Knitter. One Year

Stash 2005: I learned to knit a year ago and bought this little case to hold my Stash (it now holds sock yarn). Oh what a naive little Grasshopper I was...

Stash: April 1, 2006


Meet the Rowans: Summer Tweed, Polar, Handknit Cotton DK, Kidsilk Haze

I love Europe: 9 hanks of Black Water Abbey Wool (Ireland) , Dale of Norway Daletta, Classic Elite Isabella and Elsbeth Lavold Silky Wool (from Italy)


I've Got The Blues: Lana Grossa Basics, Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk, Sidar Denim Tweed DK. In the front: Ellen's Halfpint farm, 1 skein of 50/50 merino/silk and 1 skein of silk in the same colourway, 1 skein of silk


Black & White: Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Astrakhan, Rowan Cashcotton DK, Schoeller Wonderwool, 1 skein of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Superchunky, Lana Gross Kidair, Crystal Palace Party, Hey, how did that cat get in the photo??


Red Hots (and a few others): Artfibers Kyoto (silk/kidmohair), Brooks Farm Duet (blue), Fire Marl red ColourMart cashmere yarn from my lovely (and still unknown) UK SP 6, 2,500 yards of Brooksfarm Primero, some pretty & soft Paton's Zhivago from my purler Holiday SP, Aurora, and in the front, some Annie Blatt yarn to make the strawberry hat (could someone please have a baby??)


My Felted Future: 10 skeins of Noro Kuyeon in 3 colourways (some from the wonderful Zknitter), Lopi and Twillys Freedom wool


On the left: GGH esprit "Knit For Her Cure" afghan kit, Ellens' Halfpint farm silk/wool, Colinette Giotto(from my SP 6) Lana Grossa Veneto


The Great Mission Falls 1824 Wool Close Out Panic Purchase of 2005 (the taupe is my father's Christmas'05 present afghan--I think I'm a bit late getting started, don't you?)

54 skeins of cream yarn.

Baby yarn and a cat leg


From the Heart: Yarn for Charity projects. I'm currently knitting some blanket squares for the Knit the Classics Blanket project and some sweaters for Knit for Kids.

Last minute entry: Today I received a package from my Mystery Swapper from Knit the Classics, Marji and she included some beautiful vintage mohair & silk sapphire blue yarn.


May your yarn basket never be empty.

You have had a very busy year!Just think what it will look like next year!

Wow, you've been serious! :)

I have some sad news for you. If you amassed that in one year, you will be in deep doo-doo if you keep knitting for 10 or 15 years. Really deep. And I know what I'm talking about.

It's a lovely stash.

Holy cow that's an impressive stash amassment in one year! What may I ask, does one do with 54 balls of cream yarn?

Hey! That cream yarn! Wasn't that suppose to be made in to something for little ole moi??? hmmmm???

It looks good - you've always been a great organizer. Love the color assortments.

I love the red photograph - gorgeous colors. I swatched the red Kyoto, but it was the green Hana that won my heart that day. I can see that SABLE is not far in your future!

holy cats cpurl! did you knock over a yarn store?! Great stash!

 
At 3:18 PM, Blogger Jen said...

I also had a cute storage box that I thought would be perfect for stash storage when I first started knitting. Right now, my stash lives on and around the box, because it sure won't fit inside any more.

Awesome stash!
