Five weeks in to 2017 and I haven't made a single yarn purchase yet. (this might be a record.) Needles, yes. (not my fault---blame security in El Salvador) Yarn, no.
This full version Hansel used some Knit Picks Bare from a purchase last year when I thought I was ready to dive into natural dyeing and didn't, some sock yarn I bought on our holiday trip to Germany (still enough left for socks! I hope---see below) and some Jamieson Spindrift from a 2005 trip to Shetland. Thank goodness yarn doesn't get stale. True to form, none of this yarn was used for it's purchased purpose. (can you tell I'm feeling rather smug using all this stash for what turned out to be a rather substantial shawl!!!)
On the needles now, a Kristen Kapur mystery sock (ssssh. it's a mystery, you can't see it; you wouldn't want to see it anyway. We're on clue 2; I'm still on clue 1) and the hap for Harriet shawl that lost its needles on the trip. I've just about reached the mid-point....and if I was excited about any other project, this would most likely head to time-out. (Maybe I would love it more if it was grey.)
!LOVING! the cup (and tea) I won a while ago in a drawing at Mysistersknitter. Andi had to send it twice....first time, it decided to return itself to her. Really happy it decided living here was going to be OK.
joining Ginny for yarnalong!
