Stash day!

Today is the 2nd annual Flash your stash day. It's the day the stash comes out of its hiding spots for some time in the spotlight. So here is my stash coming out for some air...

First up, 2 balls of Sock-it-to-me out for a walk.

And a mailbox full of leftover Lett-Lopi from my husband's Hringur sweater and some Christmas mittens. Isn't our mailbox pretty? It was hand painted for us as a wedding present. The bird on the left represents my last name and the birds on the right represent my husband's last name. Notice the five little eggs next to my bird...

Teal, Celadon and Oxford Gray Peruvian Collection Pure Alpaca (from Elann) poking out of our kitchen table drawer.


Heating up some leftovers: Highland Wool (from Elann) leftover from Bristow. Brown Lopi leftover from Hringur grilling together with Brown Cashmerino Astrakhan and Cashmerino Aran leftover from my Olympic cardi. And a Le Creuset full of stewing leftover acrylic.

How 'bout a pink delight for desert! Here are a couple of balls of Phildar Frimas that were to become an Odessa hat, lots of fushia merino I know not what to do with and some other random pink leftovers.

Would you like a glass of blue? Here's a lonely ball of Bernat Satin and tiny balls of leftover blue.

And speaking of blue...here's a sinkful! Stretch Merino, powder blue Volare, lot's of Peruvian Collection Uros Aran to become a Menorah pillow, 2 balls of sock-it-to-me and way too much varigated Plymouth Cottrica (I hate that yarn!).

Rowan All Seasons Cotton throw pillow! I've got 20 balls of the stuff that I bought for a song from Janette's Rare Yarns. It will become a 2nd (cotton) anniversary sweater for my husband. What will I be knitting? Well Knitty's anniversary sweater of course!

Mmmm, candy! Here's a jar of delicious Noro Silver Thaw and random balls of leftover pink and purple projects.

And here's a trunkful of Sirdar Calypso cotton which will become an aran v-neck for Julian. There are 2 balls of Cotton Tots hiding at the back that I hope to use to make chicks!


Live it up yarn. At midnight, you're all going back to the yarn closet ;0)

Well, maybe not all of you...

  24. How freakin cute are your pics? I mean really, you make the rest of us look like slackers who threw our yarn on the bed and snapped pics just before we went to bed last night. Not that I did that, I'm just sayin.

  25. Wouldn't it be cool if the yarn really took over every inch of the house that way? If we could just get it to reproduce, we'd save SOOOO much $$$$! Great pics!
