The garden is doing great!
I'm ready for some tomatoes now, though. Getting a bit tired of the zukes.
I am currently knitting two projects, but the other day I was looking for something and came across a plastic bag full of yarn. I'd relocated a bunch of half-
I went through the stash and gathered every bit of acrylic, part-acrylic, fun fur, eyelash, everything I bought mostly when I first started knitting because I thought it was cute, and didn't realize it was impractical. For example, knitting with fun fur is so awful, the only thing that kept me from outright pitching it is my frugal Yankee nature. (I blame that nature for my pack-rat tendencies, too). I gathered it all up, along with the Lion Brand Thick-and-Quick half-skeins, and went on a massive cat mat bender. I donate these cat mats to a local no-kill shelter.
I made eight over a few days. I've got two more done, and I think I could make four or five if I go through and really shake the stash. All the little remnants, the old Red Heart and Vanna's Choice, the part skeins...when I first started knitting, I wanted everything. So I bought everything, even if I had no plans for it. I bought armfuls of acrylic, because I was practicing and had big plans. I did the same with unspun fiber, so one day soon there will be a massive spinning-knitting marathon, once I figure out what to do with it.
I will be so glad to get the stash down to just a few choice, higher quality yarns. Then I can work on de-stashing that! A few years back I bought a Knit Picks sampler. Fine yarn, almost like sock yarn, but 100% wool. I've got to come up with something fabulous to do with that. That won't be for cat mats.
Thanks for stopping by!
