I have acquired some more yarn – like I actually needed any – but it has put me in a bit of a quandry. The shop where I attend a weekly “Knit and Knatter” evening was selling off some Artesano yarn as they were discontinuing the colours. I got four balls of a mustard yellow in DK and three of a pale terracotta shade also in DK for a snip. Then, in the same week, I renewed a magazine subscription and was sent two balls of red 4 ply. I had also got around to frogging a misshapen shrug which leaves me 7 balls of the blue in DK Artesano Alpaca.
The thing is, I have no idea what to do with them as there isn’t a vast amount of any colour. I keep getting them out and gloating over them as I do love a bargain and the colours are fab but, in terms of inspiration, I have got zip. I have discarded the idea of blankets (yawn), scarves (bigger yawn) and hats (always cause me problems.) Equally, I don’t want to buy any more than I already have on the grounds that my yarn stash seems to be taking over the flat. I think it may related to Audrey 2 and needs pruning badly. So this an appeal: Anyone want to suggest their favourite small project to get me started? All ideas gratefully received.
