Fighting with the stash
So here I was this morning. Thinking "Phew", I've nearly got all of it in there ! (except the crap of course, which shall stay in my plasticy 5-drawer thing; and the rest, still stored in Grenoble.. ;-) )
Please ignore the mess btw, it's an in-progress pic...
But I still had that feeling, like, Hey, where are the 2 skeins of Any Blatt Merino though... So I went and checked under the bed. Yep. There it was. The third bag !!!
Now I just have to try and fit in the best of what's in there.
But anyhow, even though it's quite obvious that a lot of my stash is made of bits and pieces and crap, I'm already super happy whith those new shelves. Now it will be so much easier to plan what I need to use up and what I can use for each project ect...
I'll take a pic of the full room when it's all done btw. :-D
The chokers are done, and blocking. Of course I had to do yet some more modifications, but I'm really happy of the result. They end up looking so much neater than my first "prototypes". So I guess it was worth the wait...!
I hate to show you that pic, really doesn't do them justice, but wanted to check already whether there'd be 2 volunteers to test the pattern. I'm still working on embellishment options, but other than that the pattern is fully written and I'd really like it to be typo-free when I start putting it for sale..!
(deal is: I'd like each tester to make one choker, preferably within the week - I know, the Olympics!!- with whatever crap yarn, even if it doesn't meet gauge at all. I just want you to look for typos, or tell me what's unclear.)
Please email me if you're interested. (sylvieATchezplumDOTcom)
Oh. And who wants this pattern? I got it in a mag the other day (of course it's in french !!). Just send me an email and I'll send it to you.
...& btw, more patterns & yarn (for swap this time) here ! ;-)
Congratulations on your new baby, by the way. Have you thought about names?
Also, I had a baby last winter and let me tell you, knitting gets further and father between! Good luck!
