So I've decided that I'm only going to knit from my stash during Project Spectrum. That means I can't buy any new yarn from February to September (yeah, good luck with that...).
To get a better idea of what yarns I can use for the FIRE-theme, I decided to do a small stash inventory. I really didn't think I would have enough red/orange/pink yarn to last me through February-March.This is what I found.
Well, looks like this will last me a while! And I didn't even make a dent in the stash, since the greater part of it consists of green/brown/natural colored yarn. Oh, and can you tell I'm not really an orange type of girl? (And what the heck is that bright and shiny red acrylic left of the middle?)
The 3 skeins at the top left (Novita Wool) are already in use for a project, and the Aran Tweed is leftovers from my Red Sweater (which is all done and has already been worn, but I'm waiting for less gloomy weather to photograph it).
The sock yarn left-overs (tiny red skein below the right skein of Aran Tweed, dark pink skein below the two orange ones, tiny pink skein left of the Tofutsies and the bright over-exposed skein to the right of the Tofutsies) will be itty-bitty baby booties for charity. Like these.
They're going to the maternity ward at Keski-Pohjanmaan Keskussairaala (central hospital) to warm little newborn feet. More info here (in Finnish). I made these during the weekend, and there are more to come. I'm going to cheat a little and stray from the FIRE-theme, because I have a lot of sock yarn left-overs in other colors that I want to use up for these. And they need to be sent off by the end of February. The patterns I used can be found here (pdf), here (pdf) and here. Too cute! The ones to the right, that look like shoes, are my favorites.
