First, I admit I have a lot of stash. I don’t, however, admit to a problem. Just because some people go out at night, after a bad day, and get drunk, and I go to the nearest place that sells yarn (or go online), and buy fiber & yarn like it’s an endangered species. I prefer yarn; it’ll last longer! (OK, so I admit, after particularly bad days, I drink & knit)
Since I have a lot of stash, and it’s EVERYWHERE in our tiny, tiny apartment, I really have no way of photographing all of it. I thought I would, instead, show off some of the more unusual yarns in my collection, or my favorites, or whatever.
First, badly dyed & handspun (by me) bamboo yarn:
More bamboo yarn:
That was the first time I ever navaho plied. I used it to make this:
I call it Handspun Cowl & you can download it free on Ravelry.
This is yarn that I hand dyed to create long stripes. I actually crocheted a blank, and then dyed it.
and turned that into this
That’s another one of my free patterns, the Half a Granny Square Shawl, shown in a shawlette version.
And lastly, another self-striping yarn that I dyed. I took a thrift store sweater, washed it, took apart the pieces, and dyed the sleeves before frogging the yarn. It’s a simple way to make self-striping yarn. I used it to make the York Shawlette, another free pattern on Ravelry.
