An update on knitting...

well almost.

So far this month I've been finishing stuff & knitting little things. Little things to be worn by little people, a very new little person to be exact. However two WIP's are still OTN and another yet to be cast on so photos will happen in another post.

In the meantime I have also decided to plan my knitting for the rest of year. A humongous task but I'm really not as organised as it sounds. I'm short of cash & have a lovely well populated stash so have decided to join my own Personal Sock Club. I went 'diving' and came up with sock yarns that I'd already wound up ready to use but hadn't touched since. 9 different 4 ply yarns are now ready and waiting:

There are some lovely yarns in there including Koigu, Lorna's Laces, Fyberspates & Opal, both solid and striped

I'm going to chose each pattern once I've swatched the yarn and see what appeals to me. I couldn't match the yarn up with a pattern so far in advance as I know I'll see a new pattern & love it. I can't wait for next Sunday to start my first pair!

I plan on making more than 9 pairs of socks in the year but the rest will happen as and when, I'm not that organised!

btw can anybody guess where a lot of my stash came from????

LOL! I did the same thing last night, but I spent ages tracking down and printing out patterns, too. I've made up eleven packages, I'm aiming for twelve pairs of socks again this year.

Brilliant idea! I'm kind of doing that with the Loumms Year of Socks -- we do a lot of stash-diving -- but to actually wrap it all up?! That's fantastic!

Cool! What a fab way of rediscovering stash yarn :D

Also, you shop waaay too much, even if it is at Socktopus ;D

Don't your parcels look inviting! Can't wait to see what they become over the year... Where did some of your stash come from? Would it have anything to do with our wonderful "2 bags emporium" from CTnY forum???? [P, you know how I covet those 2 bags;o) And strive to reduce them too!]

Lovely idea with the parcels!
