I know it's only the beginning of May, but for me it's the beginning of summer. (that's what happens when you work in higher education at a university on the semester system) Finals are over, my grades are in, and that means only a few short sweet months of summertime crafting. I always start off overambitious, and this summer is no exception. You are looking at only one of the three major "stashes" I'd like to make a dent in this summer. Two large storage tubs of my acrylic yarns, including some very dubious purchases I made prior to discovering the world of wool yarn. (the other two stashes? an overflowing dresser of gorgeous sock yarn, and a fabric stash that contains at least three or four quilt's worth of fabric ready in wait) I thought I'd start by outlining plans/ideas for the acrylic stash first so I can compare my progress at the end of the summer.
the cast on for this project last week. My third garter squish blanket!
sidewinder beanies! The Hobby Lobby yarn is reflective so it's like "safety yarn."
leaf baby sweaters to have on hand for gifts.
