Y’all….it is Stash Dash season. I won’t regurgitate the whole stash dash conversation, just go look it up at the KnitGirllls. I normally don’t participate because I really like to knit whatever feeds my mojo and not for arbitrary yardage goals. But I have been encouraged by all the recent projects flying off my needles that has really left me wanting to finish things. This led to digging around in the depths of my craft room I unearthed four long languishing WIPS. So lets play a round of finish it or frog it shall we?
Working clockwise from we have:
- 22 degrees by Martina Behm in Cascade Heritage Silk (blue)
- Casu Cowl by Galia Lael in some Alpaca of Wildcat Hollow worsted weight alpaca/merino (green/pink)
- MOA shawl by Nick Davis in MJ Yarns Simple Sock in the “Of Mice and Men” colorway
- Easy Peasy Triangle Scarf in Nicki’s Knots custom dyed sparkle sock blank
I was brutally honest with myself and frogged three of the four. Any guesses? Well I’ll keep this short and tell you I kept the MOA shawl in the variegated brown tones. This means I have new WIP to work on and I have freed up three sets of needles and three projects bags. I feel so much lighter and excited to find better projects for all that yarn.
Although….the Alpaca/Merino mix yarn just didn’t get my motor running anymore. I might be looking for it to find a good home somewhere else. Do you ever fall out of love with a skein of yarn?
