Well, I'm sorry to say I did not quite make the Stash To Treasure deadline for this month. As I sit here on the second of February, I have completed the knitting portion of the challenge, twice over, with two "Elementary" Cowls knit exclusively from stash yarn.
This one is knit with 3 skeins of Classic Elite Yarns, Chateau. A3 requested one after seeing all the other fluffy cowls that were given away. I just happened to have three skeins sitting, unused, in my stash thanks to a lovely and generous co-worker.
Then I had to quickly try the short "Elementary" Cowl, also made from a skein of Chateau and a leftover skein of Chalet. I think I'm starting to feel a little bit of Valentine's Day madness coming on.
Actually, I'm quite sure I am. I pulled out the Love Monster pattern from last Valentine's day and I'm working on a fingering weight version.
Wait, what were we talking about? Right, Stash To Treasure. This is made from stash yarn. Can this count for February?
On the weaving front, I managed to wind a warp, but,
I haven't found time to dress the loom yet. I think this one is going to have to wait until swim season is over, the sewing project too. As a matter of fact, I have to go downstairs and sew three towel ponchos for Swim Champs this afternoon. Unfortunately, they don't count towards the challenge. I didn't have six black and red towels sitting in my stash!
So, it's pretty clear I can get the knitting done. I still have hope that I can make a dent in the weaving and sewing stash too. Just keep making! That will be my motto for next month.
Happy February everyone. Stay tuned for Valentine's Day maddness!
