Well today is the 3rd annual 'Flash your stash' day and in it's honour, I let out some of the stash to play. I celebrated the occasion with my favourite sock yarn especially dyed by me by the delightful jcasa. I had always wanted Kool Aid yarn but didn't have the guts to try it...so Jen gathered some berry flavours and dyed this merino sock yarn for me. I have yet to find a deserving pattern so it is still unknit. Thought I keep it in a ziploc to maintain the integrity of it's Kool-Aidy aroma and enjoy a berry whiff every chance I get ;0) And yes, I totally lit candles atop my very favourite yarn. What? Yarn is self-extinguishing! Plus I supervised very closely!
Up next, eight balls of Elann's baby cashmere batter and six balls of berry pink Baby Silk (also from Elann...I heart that place!) frosting whipping up in the kitchen. Getting hungry yet?
And then, because I am watching my yarn figure, a little mixed green salad. Two shades of green from Hanne Falkenberg's Diva 8 kit (which I would like to destash -the kit including pattern - for $100 including shipping...let me know if you are interested! -- PENDING), some Peruvian Highland Wool in 'peridot' and a few balls of Elann Baby Silk also in 'peridot.'
Up next is all my beatnik yarn. All purchased in the last few months. All grey. All uninspiring! That's actually a colour photo, folks! Blah, eh? What can I say? All this Rowan ASC, Debbie Bliss Cotton Cashmere and Elann Devon was on sale ;0)
For those days when socks are just what the knitting doctor ordered...a medicine cabinet full of sock yarn. Mostly Sock it to Me from Elann and various lovelies from Knit Picks.
Some Rowan Wool in 'heath' (my favouritest yarn ever!) jamming up a baritone. Yup, we have a baritone! Bet you didn't know that about me, did you? I, of course, don't play the baritone. Neither does anyone I know. But I have one. One of the many many many weird things I discovered when my husband I moved in together. He's got lots of strange things but considering the amount of yarn I've got hiding under the bed...well I guess a baritone isn't that weird. I mean he does play the french horn. Though we don't have one of those. Just a baritone. Julian gets quite a kick out of it though. We take it out to toot at least once a week. Who knows, maybe Jujube will be some baritone maestro (is there such a thing?) someday. Right now though, he can't quite reach the mouthpiece ;0)
A sinkful of blue leftover from last year's flash your stash day. I did use up some of it for the menorah pillow this holiday season, but other than that. I'm still stashing all this blue ;0)
And this sirdar cotton too ;0) One of these days it'll become something cute. Perhaps trellis for Lolo?
Did you flash your stash today?
