Stash busting

I have been working, despite the lack of blogging. A combination of our wonderful heat wave and computer issues has meant a lack of movement on this front.

I've had a commission for a set of my red cuffs in a much smaller size.

Also, I've been doing some serious stash busting. Spinning 5 or 6 different unwanted commercial yarns together and then knitting on extremely large needles (25mm) is a very quick way of creating a really bulky fabric. If you take more care than I have on the colour combinations, it actually results in quite a good look.

The sad thing, is that even though quite a number of yarns have been removed from the stash, there seems to be no more space in the storage boxes. It's as if all the yarns relaxed and breathed out!

You know, the more I knit, the more stash I seem to accumulate, not stash-bust ... now that's a scary thought, isn't it?! (I wonder how that works ...)eg I have been madly knitting socks lately, and now my sock yarn stash won't fit into it's box anymore (I know, I know, working where I do certainly doesn't help matters!) (giggle)
