I was trying to explain the concept of stash busting to my husband this morning, while we were discussing the fact that I should be working on Christmas gifts by now. I was telling him that I needed a few, new, specific yarns for some of the projects. He said I should be using what I have, which is true. I have a lot. Trouble is, that it’s mostly acrylic from when I first started knitting again. This is were the fact that I am now a yarn snob really does me a disservice.
I said to him that I would try and stash bust as much as I could this year. He joked, “Good, or I’ll have to stash bust you!” He then explained that by “stash bust” he meant that he had found my stash and was going to mess with it.
So, if your significant other happens to find your stash (and apparently disapproves) you are “Stash Busted!”
This is my stash. It is not large, it is not organized.
I am officially stash busted, and I’ve shown you mine, now it’s your turn to show me yours! What does your stash look like? Will you be diving into it this holiday season? (I know, why would I scare you into thinking about the holidays right now? It’s because we only have 114 knitting days left people!)
I have a few hat pictures for you!
It took a lot of driving, but I found some places with weather (sort of) cool enough for me to bust out my hand spun hat and wear it in public!
Yesterday it took its maiden voyage to the Ninkasi brewery in Eugene, Oregon. (Sadly not my taste in beer, but my brother loved their bitter beer selection.)
Then, today in Portland, we made a stop by The Naked Sheep and picked up a few pretties for some future projects.
It was too dark for pictures of the new yarn when we got back to camp, but hopefully I can post some tomorrow. It was a great little shop, and the lady at the counter was extremely friendly, which got me thinking… Does anyone have any Seattle yarn shops that they would suggest? I do love them so, and can’t wait to check out more on this trip!
