I was flicking through my Ravelry stash yesterday night. I realised I have a LOT of yarn without particular plans. (Well realise is perhaps the wrong word – I have always known I had a problem but had never pondered on it long enough to really see that I needed to do something about it)
So I decided that it was about time I worked out some plans.
Now some of this yarn is destined for octos. And some already has a purpose (for example the Batik Swirl will be a coccoon cardi and the cascade will be a blanket and the drops baby merino will be practice flowers for my wedding bouquet). But a lot of it has no particular plan (29 of these ravelry listings, in fact).
I have put together a que in ravelry (This is the first time I have used the que function) and I am finding it quite useful.
So hopefully I can get cracking on these soon. Then perhaps I can work out what to do with some more of my unruly stash of yarn!
What with a house and a wedding to save for as well as a dream holiday to San Francisco later this year I really need to save the pennies and one way I can do this is to stop buying yarn when I have so much at home.
I also hope following other peoples patterns will help me to improve and expand my skills – following the Last Dance on the Beach pattern really taught me a lot so I hope these patterns will do to.
What do you have in your que at the moment? Let me know in the comments!
