“What do you have too much of?”
Yarn is the most obvious answer: my mum and I have accumulated quite a collection over the years. We’ve bought yarn, with the intention of making specific projects, then said yarn has never been made into intended projects and remains in the cupboard. Hence, the stash increased. For the last few years we’ve barely added to it, and are gradually using it up. I’d have liked for this top I’m (half) wearing to be finished by now, but alas, Lily was not quick enough! It’s to be this from Stefanie Japel’s Fitted Knits, but with extra shaping and shorter to make it more ‘me’. I don’t tend to dedicate much time to finishing personal projects these days (just a few minutes here and there when I fancy it) so who knows how long this will take. I’m slightly addicted to polonecks atm and I’ll have a purple sparkly chunky one to add to my collection now! Standard stuff, everybody needs a purple sparkly handknit poloneck. 🙂 Perfect use for all that purple sparkly yarn tucked away, so maybe we don’t actually have too much. Almost everything I’ve made this year has been with yarn plucked from our shelves. I’ve become used to living in a house with crafty bits and pieces everywhere; it’s normal for me to have all that kind of thing to hand whenever I fancy making something! Maybe one day we’ll have exhausted our supply, but we’re good to keep plucking from the stash for little projects for now.
A half-finished-still-on-the-needles top might seem kinda weird to non-crafty types, I do apologise! Tell me what do you have too much of!
