Socks on a Bannister

knittingIsn’t that lovely?! This is the first thing I saw when I woke up this morning…what a wonderful sight! These are all of my hand knit socks drying from their “bath” the night before. I love how bright and beautiful they are.

There are a total of nine pairs hanging out to dry, plus I have two more pairs in my dresser. I love knitting socks! As a matter of fact, I currently have five other pairs on the needles. One of which are going to be for my daughter. If she gets as addicted to wearing hand knit socks as I am then I may really be in trouble!

Although I’ve tried using double point needles, my favorite method is using a long, circular needle and doing Magic Loop. As far as toe up or cuff down, I like doing both. Of the socks on my needles right now, they are pretty much split right down the middle with toe up or cuff down. Same with heels, I like to do lots of different heels. Personally, for my foot, I think I like the way a traditional heel flap and gusset fits. But I’m open and happy to try lots of different ones. One thing that is a “hard and fast rule” for my sock knitting, though, is that I do them two at a time. I know myself and I know that I’d be struck with second sock syndrome if I didn’t knit both at the same time!

How about you? Do you knit socks? If so, how many pairs have you knit? Do you keep most of them for yourself or share them with others? Do you use DPNs or Magic Loop? Toe up or cuff down? Two at a time or singles? I’d love to hear about your sock knitting!

Bye,
Lisa

A Destash Is Good For the Soul

 

destashI’m sure you all remember my “Wall of Yarn”. It’s almost like a piece of art, in my opinion! But, as you know, I’ve been working very hard at destashing all the yarns I knew I wouldn’t ever use. It has been a truly interesting process for me. It was eye opening to go through my stash. I was shocked by the various skeins that I’d accumulated. It’s hard to even remember where they all came from.

I was also very surprised by the amount of anxiety I felt as I began the process. I think in some ways my stash has become my “security blanket”. It makes me feel safe and comfortable. That may sound crazy to a non crafter, but if you are like me you totally understand. There is something reassuring about knowing I have a great number of skeins of yarn at my finger tips. So I did feel anxiety when I decided it was time to part with some of them. But then, amazingly enough, I discovered that the entire process could be very freeing and very empowering.

It’s almost as if I’ve reawakened my love of knitting and yarn. I’m more excited now about my stash than I’ve been in a long time. I had yarns in my stash that I knew I’d never knit and they made me feel guilty. It is a waste for them to be languishing in my stash when someone out in the world would love to knit or crochet with them. Alot of those yarns have now found new homes, some have even already been knit into something beautiful by their new owners!

The destashing frenzy has slowed down considerably. I still have lots of yarns available for sale – come check them out HERE! But, for the most part, the selling has slowed to a steady trickle. As of today, I have sold 395 skeins of yarn – that is about 53,000 yards of yarn! Amazing!!! My “Wall of Yarn” is getting pretty bare…destash

 

But don’t worry because I have lots and lots of yarn that needs photographed, documented on Ravelry, and added to the cubbies. I’ve been spending a great deal of my earnings from the destash on new yarn. But the difference this time around is that I know I’m going to LOVE knitting with the yarns in my “Wall of Yarn”. I’ve been smart about what I’ve purchased. I promise to write another post, with pictures of course, once the cubbies are all full and pretty again.

Do you have a big stash? Or actually any size stash? If there are yarns in your stash that are weighing you down, making you feel guilty, or that you don’t absolutely love, then I highly recommend you consider a destash. Give those yarns a chance to go to someone who will love and use them. You’ll make a little money, and you’ll feel so much lighter!

Bye,
Lisa
