Truth be told, I've got so much yarn lined up for projects right now, I don't have time to stashassinate. (Did I spell that right? )

Update: #5 is done is looking marvelous. So kewl...

Well - my next choice of astashination is half astashination. I put my Sporty Hood on the needles w/ some leftover yarn from my Knitty Kyoto sweater. It's not dyelotted, so I'll be able to get more yarn when/as I need it.

So I'm still in the astashination game!

I just finished my first washcloth, for my DH- he said he liked it, but he didn't use it :thinking: fuggedaboutit, I know I'll use it.
It turned out pretty well, I did it in seed stitch because I haven't done that before and I wanted to see how it came out, I really liked it. It had a really neat texture.
I haven't started yet on my cool Xmas scrubbie yet, but I have the ball of 'yarn' just about ready to go, I'll post a pic once I remember where my camera is
Geeze Ek, get a digicam already...How do we know you're really doing this stuff???

Dudette - I gave my #4 to my mother. She says she'll use it, but I know she'll sit it on the shelf and won't let anyone (including herself) use it. :rollseyes: I understand she thinks that's a sign of honoring it, I guess. But ... well .... they're made to be used! *sigh*

Yes - I know - I'm starting to get a complex about this too w/ the digicam situation. My mother's old job had a digicam. So she took a pic of a sweater and blanket that I made so I could post it. Things were looking up on the pic posting circuit for ekgheiy; I sent the two projects with her to work and she'd email the pic to me ... blah blah blah. But then - Mother switch jobs

I told Dh that if he wasn't going to use it, let me know and I'd give it to someone else.
"Oh, no, I'll use it!" he says
I tossed it to him in the shower, he hung it on the showerhead...I happened to peek in after he was out and the durn thing was barely wet. It's not because he 'honors' it, unfortunately. He could really care less about my knitting. Which is fine, I could really care less about golf and NASCAR, but I at least pretend to be interested, and even wear that dumb ol Dale Jr shirt he insisted I buy...
OK, I'm just irritated with him in general this weekend, and I tried to overcome that and make him something, and he got me all riled up again...
