I was digging through my “stash” (collection of yarn for those of you non-knitting readers out there) this weekend and found a skein (aka, a ball of yarn) that is bright, variegated, multi-colored sock yarn that I believe will make just the right next pair of socks. I will, however, have to take the socks that I started a month ago off the needles. Don’t be too sad for them – I didn’t really like the yarn, so it will become a gift (KATE!) and I hadn’t gotten very far with the cast on, so there is really no time lost.
I also found a shawl pattern that interested me a few years ago, so I think I’m going to start shopping for yarn for it. (Did I say shopping? Didn’t mean to. I meant…waiting. Or, um, looking for yarn in my stash….yeah, that’s what I meant….) I also found my first attempted shrug with a complicated cable pattern that I totally mucked up and now I’m thinking that I want to frog it and re-do it properly.
I also found the sock yarn that I was making this little heart satchel thingie for Lori, so I think it is time to revive that project – I just need to find my size 0 DPN (double-pointed-needles….)
Whew! I guess you could say that inspiration struck!
