Stash gripes

In knitting, stash busting on October 27, 2015 at 9:47 am

My stash is plentiful. Although most knitters don’t complain about this problem, I have to. It’s old. It’s not great quality. Sometimes I’m motivated to use it, sometimes I’m not. I don’t want to dump it though.

I’ve used some to make mittens and probably use it all to make the garter projects I identified before.


That’s the progress I’ve made. I did these 2 at a time.One is done…the thumb of the second has to be done, as well as seaming. Then both need weaving.

Where’s Moto?

It’s still on my needles! That’s where Moto is. I got about 11″ done. Clickitty clack I’m shooting for 11″ more.

Where are you at with yours?

Getting Moto ready

I need help choosing colorblock options. I also asked for help here.

I have 220 yds dk. grey and 330 yds. taupe grey.

What do you think?

 Any other suggestions?

Fat Fridays: Chunky Garter Stitch Mittens

In community challenges, knitting, stash busting on October 2, 2015 at 6:44 pm

Bulky yarn is my favorite, especially when it comes from my stash. I doubled yarn to make it work for the chunky garter stitch mittens pattern.  I haven’t worked on these that long but I’m almost done! I’ve taken heed to all the advice given on Ravelry.  During meetings and at lunch, I’ve been knitting away, in preparation for the fall and winter. 

What have you been up to?
