Knitting the Stash in 2014

button   As things dwindle down towards the end of the year and the beginning of another, I start  laying out some goals or actually more like challenges for myself.

Challenges may be met or I may fail but they are something I enjoy striving for – even if they don’t turn out anything like my initial plan.

So you’ll see a button in the sidebar with this sweet image on it – I think it’s so pretty (even if I’m not a cat person) and love the colors used in it.  (Wouldn’t a quilt be pretty in those colors? the blue, burgundy, grayish white, the dark color of the cat’s fur and that taupey greenish background — I think I’d like it)

Anyway in simplest terms – I plan to knit from the stash next year and if you click on the button you’ll see my plan explained.  If you want to join in this challenge,  feel free to play along with me.

  1. Don’t be so quick to say you aren’t a cat person. That’s what Judy said and I think it took her less than a day to fall in love with Boots!
    From a cat person, Jane

  2. I think I’ll play, too. I have actually been knitting the stash (for the most part) in 2013. I have a question for you. I am trying to knit English (I am a Continental knitter) and I am just flummoxed on how to hold the yarn in my right hand for tensioning. I am having such a hard time with this and I don’t know why. I have tried different ‘wraps’ around my fingers, holding the needle like a pencil (ugh) and watching all kinds of online videos and copying the ‘wraps’. Nothing works. The yarn just seems to slide off my right hand. What do you do?

    • I don’t do it like any of the videos. LOL and I’m not really sure how to explain what I do. You’ll just have to stop by so I can show you. 🙂 I’ll have to see if I can take a photo with my left hand off how I hold my right hand — this could get tricky!
