Ok so after the inspiration from Zoe from Pinsandneedles I’ve traveled through my stash…..
On the day I had a helper….
I’ve bagged it all into potential projects…. Lots of the yarn though was bought for projects for me which have as usual languished……like this beautiful Sweet Georgia DK which is for a top for me…. No pattern as yet…. I think I was going to make one up
We have a few potential hats….
A sweater for William….
Some more hats….
A Baable for me….
A hat and some socks for James….
Heaps of socks for me and a Sockhead hat!, William will of course get socks from the spares!!!
A shawl for me…
And heaps more some already with patterns, some mitts, some more hats, a closer look at some gorgeous skeins…. Phew it’s gonna be a busy year!!!
Some of the stash I have chosen to ignore for now…..
Then my helper wandered off…
So I didn’t manage to start the fabric…..
