ahh, the benefits of reorganization. the joys of finding yarns that were missing. better yet, the euphoria of finding yarns you didn’t even know you had!
i had experienced both of those joys this weekend during phase 1 of the re-organization. I found one skein of STR from the Rockin’ Sock Club November shipment that must have gotten put away a bit too quickly. So that got wound up quickly and made into the Raven Swirl Socks from the club. here one is sitting on my laptop this morning. this is just before it went on my foot 🙂
i also pulled out my treasured skein of the Sanguine Gryphon’s Bugga! that i risked life and limb for at Sock Summit ’09 (seriously, so many people crowded into the booth, it almost toppled a wall). I really couldn’t bear to make it into socks that would be stuffed into shoes, so i decided to make a Multnomah shawl that i could snuggle up to and show to the world. I’m 3 rows away from being done with the garter stitches and that’s since Tuesday evening, so score for the speed knitting!
not the best picture, but hey, its something!
so the plan after the shawl is to start a sweater of some sort with the 6 skeins of Malabrigo Worsted. Since I’m going to be short on yarn with that one, I’m thinking its going to need to be a top-down construction. I’m leaning towards Shalom since i can also add 3/4 length sleeves.
