Knit From Your Stash 2007


I read about Wendy’s challenge on Terri’s blog this morning and I am seriously thinking about participating. I have sooooooooo many projects that I’ve purchased yarn for and have not yet started. What is it about this obsessiveness we knitters seem to share, this always seeing a new project we must knit and then, before we even start it, seeing ANOTHER project we must knit?

I haven’t quite made up my mind about this challenge yet. I think it is one of those decisions that you must totally be convinced of before you can achieve it — like an addict of some sort. Yes, I’ve admitted it. I’m an addict.

If I sit down and take a serious look at my stash and then make a list of all the projects I could knit betweeen January and September 2007, I think I will have more than enough to keep me busy. And, it would be wonderfully refreshing to use that stash. And, I am probably going to be astonished to discover that I have more than enough stash for the challenge. In fact, I will probably discover I have enough for two years worth of knitting, maybe even THREE years worth. Have I convinced myself yet? When you see the button on my sidebar you will know I have accepted the challenge.

  1. I think I’m going for it – there is no question that I have enough yarn…..it’s just ….I don’t know kind of scary!

  2. I’m so unworthy. I only have stash for 2 sweaters and a vest and a few pairs of socks.

    I have a friend in Aurora and she emailed me status pictures yesterday during the part of the blizzard that had daylight. I gotta say, I’m pretty glad we moved. (I’m so not a snow person.) The scary part is we were considering retiring (in 2000 when hubby got out of the Air Force) to Evergreen. I hear they got in the neighborhood of FOUR FEET.

    Can I mention that we’ve only had a dusting here in Mass so far?

  3. I will do my best to knit from my stash…but I make no promises…so I probably won’t join just so I can buy new yarn, LOL!

    Hope you’re all dug out from the blizzard! We don’t have any snow, and they are calling for showers over the weekend…looks like we’re going to have a green Christmas this year…waaaaahhhh!!

    By the way, I tagged you on my blog (you can get the instructions there :o) )

  4. I’m also thinking about it . . . I’ll have to do some assessment next week and see what the deal is.

    And I really haven’t forgotten about your emails about Christmas, I promise. The beau’s family arrived in town this past week and there have been lots of family events (all good!) – I’ll respond soon!

  5. Hi Rebecca,

    Glad to hear you did not get buried to badly in snow.

    I’ll be watching your side-bar to see if a Knit From Your Stash 2007 button appears.

    Happy Birthday to your DH.
