I am actually quite surprised at how reluctant I am to raid my stash. I think of the beautiful yarns I have lying in all those bins, and think that once it's knit up, it's gone. It's no longer a part of my stash. And it is likely that I'll never have that
I have promised a friend that I would make her a scarf, and I have the perfect yarn for this particular project. It's a hand dyed set of skeins from Barbara Parry at Foxfire Fiber and Designs. It's been in my stash since I bought it at the Webs Tent Sale from Barbara's tent, on my birthday in 2012, and I've thought about knitting it, but never had a project that quite suited it. Now that I know how to make a Noro Striped Scarf (thank you, Brooklyn Tweed), I reckon I can do the same with this, without changing skeins every other row. Knit it up in a 1x1 rib, so that it looks like stockinette, but doesn't curl, and displays the absolutely gorgeous colours of this yarn.
