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!


One thought on “inspiration

  1. It’s the new year. It made me want to “clear the decks”, so to speak, too. And of course I’ll always take sock yarn off your hands!
