There are as many stories as there are skeins of fiber but I will only tell you those stories which involve acquiring massive or at least large quantities of yarn. Every picture tells a story.
I am going to share things for the next few posts which have caused my yarn stash to grow. I will share stories which explain the immenseness of the residents of the Stash Studio. Today it will be Survivor Shawls, Kathy's afghan, Knit the Sky, and Crayon Box Jacket. There is a common principle operating here. Let's see if you can figure it out before I unveil the theme.
1. Survivor Shawls
2. Crayon Box Jacket
3. Kathy's afghan
4. Knit The Sky
Do you see a pattern here? All of these projects had an indefinite amount or color. They all were subject to my interpretation of what was necessary. And you all ready know my philosophy. More is better. There is no such thing as enough. You would think if I limited myself to patterns and projects that had a recommended yarn with the exact amount needed I would be safe. Installment 2 in "Mary, Mary Quite Contrary, How Does Your Yarn Stash Grow?" will show you that is not necessarily the case.
