My yarn stash, which is a drop of water compared the the ocean that is my fabric stash, has been neglected for quite some time. I crochet most evenings, making blankets for The Linus Connection. I usually dig out the yarn I need and leave the rest.
Unfortunately, my poor yarn stash had been neglected so long, that I “lost” two small projects in there.
I rectified this situation last night by sitting and sorting all of my yarn, rewinding messy skeins and bagging yarn by intended project.
There was one mostly completed dishcloth, using my Carpool Dishcloth pattern. After sorting the yarn, I sat and crocheted for five minutes and finished it up.
Really? I wonder why I left it unfinished in the first place…
The second project I found was a small stack of variegated and brown granny squares, made using my favorite technique, that I call Turn Around Granny. I turn my granny squares after each row, which keeps them from tilting. It also removes one of my least favorite parts of traditional granny squares: they have a front and a back.
These have been sorted out with more brown and variegated yarn and I will endeavor to make these my next Linus Connection afghan.
Now, back to enjoying my family!
Workshops are open!
