The Taming of the Sewing Room – the running amok of the stash

Well after a bit of procrastination again this a.m. (I had to bake some bread and do a bit of laundry), it’s midafternoon and I think I just need to vacuum the sewing room and call it done.  I’ve been busy cleaning in there and have reclaimed the table and pretty much have everything put away.

In the meantime – as I was also sorting through a box of yarn leftovers (or so I thought only leftovers) I found the cowl I was looking for last night as well as another scarf to finish.  I new they were here somewhere.

As for today’s stash report – just call me hopeless.  I enjoy seeing how much yarn yardage I knit up each year and how much fabric I sew up each year — how much I add to the stash — well let’s just say at just over two months into the year, I’ve totally lost interest in adding up the tally of what has arrived at my house (or will be arriving!).

20170304_10I did add another 200 yards to the yarn knit tally with this cowl I finally finished off last night.   I started this SSC cowl for a KAL but never got it finished before that KAL ended.

But I needed a project to finish for the Cowls, Scarfs and Shawls group KAL on Ravelry so can mark one project completed.  I’m not fond of the very thick to very thin nature of this yarn but the colors I adore so I think it will be a fun accent piece – tho it is very bulky.

So a total of 7410 yards knit and no movement on the fabric front — well may be this quilt kit is coming to my  house because I’ve loved the design ever since I first saw it and have been wanting to make a project with these darker twilight garden.JPGfabrics but didn’t really want to have to start collecting them bit by bit s0 found the kit at a closing business sale and couldn’t pass it up.  A great mix of pieced blocks and a bit of applique (I love the white star flowers.  It’s all yarn dyed fabrics so will have sort of a primitive feel – far different than the batiks I’ve been playing with lately.


Oh – and this might have arrived  at my door this week too….
