With Stash And Stripes
I picked the colors and started knitting only to discover that it would be nice with some new colors. And some more of the colors I already have. Maybe it is an illness - something totally incurable.
Anyway, I started knitting this stripy shawl or scarf or a hybrid of them. Two rows of alternating colors - all the colors I love and most of them from my jacket of many colors. Oh, and some new colors.
It is going to take some time knitting on 2.5mm needles. But I fancy the outcome. So much fun to see the colors blend and see what happens to them when they make different pairs.
When i change colors I spit splice - no ends to weave in appart from the two in the beginning and the on in the end.
So, the stash seems to be a very bad excuse to get more yarn. But I get a fun knit and something to wear in the end. I added my sort of pattern on my Ravelry page. Check it out if you like to.
Do not ever underestimate what you have in your stash - there are colors you never thought of. There are possibilities for brighter days. Just like what is hidden inside of you. There are a lot of colors stashed away in our hearts. Let them shine - take them out for you and for us to see. And enjoy your weekend!!
