Tonight was my knitting group’s annual stash exchange, a party where we take our unwanted yarn, pile it on the table, and take turns choosing new-to-us yarns! It’s so much fun! The table starts out overflowing, but by the end it’s sparse. What isn’t chosen gets donated to charity. I was a little dismayed to find myself taking so much home when if promised myself to leave with less than I’d brought.
However, when I break it down, it’s completely reasonable! Bear yarn! Charity yarn doesn’t count toward the stash! Yarn I’d taken that no one wanted, so I took it home. And that only leaves this! 3 sock yarns, one skein of bulky handspun, a few skeins of orange wool, and a huge amount of fiber for spinning. Totally reasonable, right?
I am especially motivated to knit this up. This yarn is what we call a Repeat Offender, meaning that it’s shown up at the stash exchange a time or two. This time I plan to ball it up soon and get it knitted up so it doesn’t make another appearance. :0
