Rules for Feeding the Stash

All Quiet on the Wayward Front

1.  Yes, numbers again.  It's been that kind of week.

    1a.  I would like to apologize for my continued absence. I have scolded myself, and I will work harder to post here more regularly.

2.  I have no pictures for you today.  But there has been knitting done this week.  (Disappointingly, most of it is invisible knitting.  More about that later.  It's a sore subject.)

3.  I have given up hope on getting really good FO pictures of Firmaments anytime soon.  So you'll have to make do with blocking pictures and one photo that would be really nice except for an obstructive shadow.  (I promise that in some hazy distant future when this wind stops I will get beautiful pictures of this shawl and spread them far and wide.  But right now it's spring on the Great Plains.)

4.   I picked out fabric from my stash to make a sock project bag!  I plan to follow this tutorial, except I'll most likely hand sew it.  (Just before Xmas I bent the needle on my sewing machine and managed to royally screw up my bobbin tension.  So now it's sitting in its case, under my bed, thinking about all the terrible things it's done while I try to get myself emotionally stable enough to fix it.  But I'm still angry about being left in the lurch halfway through a sewing project two days before Xmas.)

5.  I spent all day yesterday reading, which I haven't done in ages.  I finished Winter's Tale, which has been one of my favorites since high school, and I read a couple hundred pages in A Clash of Kings, and finished out the evening with the first half of Free-Range Knitter

6.  I absolutely have to start Anemone's sweater vest this week.  (Mostly I'm just putting this here so I have some real level of accountability.  Thanks for understanding.)
