My scrapbooking stash is so insane that I have been very careful about my yarn stash. HOWEVER, the only thing keeping me from adding to my yarn is:
a) my LYS closed last winter
b) my new LYS is far away
c) online shopping is less rewarding.
(Between shipping costs and not being able to touch the yarn while I'm browsing...it is easy to talk myself out of online orders.)
I've been staying away from this thread because I think I really don't belong, but right now I'm between projects and I could use some encouragement. Maybe this isn't the place to get it, but since I'd rather use yarn I have, than drool over yarn I don't, this seemed to be a good start.
My inspirations for finally posting are those two adorable baby sweaters and that super cute catepillar!
I need to go back through the thread and see what else has been posted!
One thing I really want to try is sweaters and cardigans for babies and their dolls. (Ok, one toddler and her baby doll.
) I don't do more than one project at a time though, and I'm working on my first pair of socks with some KP yarn at the moment.
My DD has the cutest cardigan and I want to try to duplicate it -- it's basically a stockinette with a cute edge/border. She's a 24mo/2T and the sweater is a 12mo and I still put it on her because I love it so much.
But those are all new yarn projects -- I'm here to work through the teal and peach and grey and navy and varigated yarn that I bought back in my crochet days!
(It's the teal and peach that are driving me batty!
My FOs won't be as nice as what I've seen so far, but I'm hoping the thought of posting here will remind me to get going and work on that yarn so I can share with you all!
