Loving My Stash

Somehow life is never simple. A lot has been happening this week involving my work, Salvbard's work and some health issues. The plus side of all the seminars and doctor's waiting rooms is that I have gotten a fair bit of stash busting done.

On the knitting front, I have also been working on a pair of socks for Chiquita that I will probably set aside for the winter holidays. Nothing too exciting, just a pair of stockinette socks in a lonesome ball of Kroy sock yarn.

I had bought the stripy brown yarn below to make boot socks for Salvbard, but he ultimately deemed it too busy for him. So far after 2 days of doctor's appointments I have 2 sleeves and the start of the left and right fronts.

This crochet project has been the Mexican Jacket from Adorable Crochet for Babies and Toddlers which I am working up in some Schoeller + Stahl Fortissima 6 Ply Socka and Regia Jacquard Color 6-ply that has been languishing in my stash. I have heard a lot of people say that Ravelry has inspired them to use their stash, but I also find that it has inspired me to look again at the books on my shelves to find patterns that I loved and find inspiring, but have never made.

I hope that whatever the reason for the doctor's appointments has been, can be resolved quickly and painlessly :)

Your projects look fun!
