There is nothing like cleaning out my studio and getting rid of all those "I will start a new hobby" things. They were piling up all over. In order to get good at a new hobby time must be spent. And even more things must be bought.
I have enough with my knitting and polymer clay. I have finally decided to not start anything new and that is actually a relief.
That was sort of a long induction. Well, when you clean up and get everything out in the open there are always some surprises.
Like the six ball of Mini Mochi yarn I found hidden. It is odd with yarn - it tend to hide all over the place and suddenly surface.
Since I earlier saw Anne knitted with multi colored yarn and added some nice soft mohair to it, I saved the idea in my head.
When I found that bag with the Mini Mochi I dug out some Plum mohair from the stash as well. And what a great idea. Mini Mochi found its match. I am knitting another mindless shawl and feel so good knowing that I am knitting from my stash.
I cast on three stitches and increase one stitch on each side every other row until half done. Then I decrease one stitch every other row until there are three stitches left. Easy, mindless and I really love that there are no long bind off edge. They tend to be either too loose or too tight.
Cleaning is just putting stuff in less obvious places
