One of the thoughts I had, in order to knit down my stash, was to pick a bin, any bin, and start knitting the yarn therein. There would be hats, scarves, sweaters, and I'm sure, some lace shawls. Probably regular shawls, too, since I know somewhere in that mishegas is enough yarn to make an alpaca shawl for someone.
The question is, would I be able to resist the siren call of new yarn? My penchant for Madeleine Tosh and Malabrigo might yet be my undoing. But if I could hold those purchases down a bit, maybe I might clear out some of the yarn I've been collecting for the last eight years. I know, eight years is probably nothing compared to some of the knitters I know. I know some people who have spare closets full of yarn they've been collecting for years. I have a few paltry bins. Still, if I didn't buy any more yarn, it would take me a few years to knit down my stash. Then I could start all over again!
Another thing I'd like to try to do this year is finish some of the outstanding projects I've got on the needles. I have at least six sweaters in various stages of completion. There's a hat I made for myself that just needs to be sewn up (I hate sewing seams, and in cotton it really tries my patience -- I need to move past the idea that this is penance for my sins). But I'd like to have some new(ish) sweaters for the cold weather, so if I can find them amidst all the bins of yarn (I think on of the bins is the Bin of Unfinished Projects), I might maybe get some of that done.
I did not finish my Christmas knitting. I know, bad knitter, no
I keep thinking I'd like to learn how to make socks, but I know I'd suffer from SSS, Second Sock Syndrome. Maybe I can bribe someone to make them for me. Now there's a thought.
