My year of knitting and spinning from stash is almost up, boy does time flies. It's pretty wild to think back on the things I've made from what I *thought* was just a tiny little bit of yarn/fiber (not to mention how much more confident and adventurous I feel with my spinning).
There’s quite a few things that I’ve enjoyed about this whole experiment -
I’m making things (!) - no analysis paralysis
I’m using what I have - waste not, want not
I’m getting to think creatively within constraints
One project that stands out from the others though is this beauty.
This is Lovage by Marie Wallin and all 18 colorways used are scraps; some bits from the leftover bins at my work, others repurposed from projects started with the best intentions but ripped out with enthusiasm, and a few given to me by Andy or other folks wanting to contribute to my efforts.
The yoke was so fun to knit, especially since I was choosing colors on the fly, and each band is delightfully different just the way I like it!
