Knit List

As is the case with many a knitter, I’ve got eyes bigger than my stomach (if you take “stomach” to actually mean “knitting time”).

Although I have culled my stash some over recent years, I do still have a large amount of yarn that won’t be knit up in the next few weeks or months and some of it will likely remain in stash for years. In an attempt to at least have a plan, I want to start a somewhat regular Knit List in which I’ll pair up some of my stash yarn with a pattern or two.

And maybe if any of these patterns look like good pairings for your stashed yarns, we could do a mini Knit-Along!

So without further ado, here is the first Knit List:

This fingering weight yarn I picked up at the Estes Wool Market a year or two ago. img_9651

I think it would make a great Odd Couple by April Klich.odd-couple-shawl-1_medium2

I’m thinking this combination of half mystery yarn/half Shibui Knits Stoccato should be…thumb_img_4624_1024

The Saudade by Ysolda Teague. I’m thinking my white for her dark grey, my middle grey for her white, my black for her yellow and my green for her orange – whaddya think?fair_isle_hat-1-3_medium2

An additional bonus to these lists will be that it’ll force me to get an accurate stash updated in Ravelry so that I can find patterns more easily!

What’s the state of your stash? Do you have projects planned for your yarns or do you work as the inspiration comes?
