An Abundance of Yarn

It may not seem like much to you veteran knitters out there, but this newbie keeps staring at her stash wondering “What am I supposed to do with all this yarn??”

I’m nervous about not having enough yarn to finish my projects which has two consequences – I tend to buy extra skeins for any given craft, and I’m extra hesitant to start anything with the leftovers.

I finally bit the bullet yesterday, though, and cast on a scarf for Amanda, my sister in everything but name.  She requested something blue, so I’m using the same yarn I used to make my first hat – a beautiful variegated  ice to deep midnight.

I’m still afraid I’ll run out though.


In other news, I finished my first pair of socks!  The second turned out much better than the first, though they’re both a bit big.  I’ve already been thinking about what changes I would make for my next pair.  I’m hopelessly in love with this color-way though – it’s named “Embers”, with creams and browns, and beautiful terra cottas.  There’s also a bit of pink I didn’t even really notice until I put them on.  Pics should be up tomorrow!

Lost Blue

First Hat

I can’t find my hat. 😦  This was my first real knitting project (scarves don’t count), and the one I’m happiest with to date.  I tried to find it yesterday to wear to breakfast with the extended clan, and it’s nowhere to be found.

Here’s hoping it turns up!
