I’m going through a yarn de-stash at the moment. Ideally, I’d love to say it’s all about living simpler, wanting less, consuming less, and all of that fantastic stuff I believe in – but to be very honest it’s been brought on by the prospect of moving house near the end of the year, and who wants to move more stuff than one has to?!
I’ve ended up with all of this spare yarn because I struggle to know what to do with the odd ball left over from a project or that I couldn’t resist picking up in a charity shop. Really, all that’s left to do is baby hats and accessories, and I don’t have a baby to knit for right now. But I do have a friend who will be exhibiting her new range of baby clothes at her local playcentre, and I can include my knitting for sale in that.
So my first project is something I guess babies like to chew on, nice and bright and soft. Not only did I use up a spare ball of cotton, but also some excess fabric and random ribbons I had. I really enjoyed using up all of these odds & ends, it feels so good to make something out of stuff right at your fingertips!
