Okay so this is one of my major projects that i will be working on predomenently. This jacket I entend to have done to wear for christmas. the peice i have done is the side gore. 1/25 done.
These are a pair of felted baby slippers that i made for Niko Kosin. So cute!
This will turn into a set of wrist warmers. this
is my first attempt at faire isle. It is going good
so far. and best of all i am using 5 colors of yarn
for this project.
This is a scarf that i made and think could get 2 more out of the ball of yarn. it doubles as a scarf for around the neck or over your head.
This is a mystery pattern that i am working on. If i finish it it will be the first set of socks other than joes that i will have finished.

Okay here is my background, my goal, my rules, and my stash. I have been knitting for about 2 1/2 years. I have completed a lot of projects most of which need alot of yarn. with in these few years i have realized that my stash is growing more frequently than my completed projects list is. So that is why i am starting this blog for the next two years. No this isn’t something my husband demanded this is something i want to do for myself. I plan to knit something from every ball of yarn i own within the next two years. Now i know you must think that my stash shouldn’t be that bad after only 2 1/2 years but i just counted it all and took pictures. In all that are not currently part of a project or prepackaged project i have a total of 329 balls, skeins, hanks and what ever else you want to call yarn. Besides that i have 23 projects in progress right now. So i think i can accomplish this but i will need motivation. Two years is a long time. Oh yah and a rule i made. I am not allowed to add to my stash until it is gone.
So here is my goal
Starting the knit off September 1st 2009 and ending September 1st 2011.
I am not allowed to buy any yarn. Unless i only need one ball to complete a project. but no new yarn.
I must use at least 3/4 of the ball or hand or skein to have it concidered being used. I am entitled to scraps and these do not count in the stash count.
Sounds pretty simple. Now i just need to figure out my game plan. And the patterns i want to make. That shouldn’t be a problem since i have over 400 faved on ravelry.
I will update my blog almost everyday and post pics of the completion for the day. First up for pics is of course the full stash.
So until the first i will be researching patterns and finishing up some wip. Look for me on ravelry or facebook. I visit those sites everyday.

Well i have really set up a large task in front of me. Before this really gets set in motion i need to evaluate how much yarn i have, sort the yarn and pick projects to start with. i will post pics of my stash soon. I can’t wait to get underway. so here is the process that i will undertake. I will post the picture of the yarn, the project i have in mind and any details of the yarn that i may want to remember. And then the final picture. Keep in mind i may have many started at once. but that is part of the fun. Think of me and keep me motivated.
