S is for Stash + Yarn #Giveaway #AtoZChallenge

yaRRns By Apr 28, 2015

Dear friends! “P” should have been for procrastinate because most of last week, a bit of this week, found me worrying over a paper I had to write for school. If, by the grace of sorta good writing and the research librarian I hit up for help, I manage to get a decent grade, as God as my witness, I will never wait ’til the last-minute to finish what I need to do again!

Until next time.

No for real.

Ahem. Let’s get to it…my stash.

What  is it about yarn that makes knitters and crocheters hoard it so? I swear I had every intention on working through my stash and only buying what I needed but then I got this awesome cube deal from IKEA and someone in one of my blogging groups was all, “look at my stash” and then O got all Gollum and this:



So then, here is a look at my stash.

It’s a mess! I have not had time to go through it properly but with my part-time gig ending soon (the school year is thisclose to being over!), I think my Mondays will be dedicated to working through and organizing this mess.

However, I did mange to pull a few skeins off of the shelves to host a quick yarn giveaway.

There are 11 skeins total.

  • Four of Red Heart Reflective (two purple, two black)
  • One Bernat Boa in Black Burgandy
  • Red Heart Easy Tweed in Pistachio
  • Basic II Yarn (two in a variegated pink, two in a variegated orange)
  • Paramaxx Knitting Yarn in a dark green

    I love to crochet!
    My favorite hook, G 🙂

    1. Rachee says:

      I started with crochet! I think I only had a G hook which I liberally borrowed from my sister! (And by liberally borrow I mean I stole it!)

  2. I only know of the G hook LOL I’m still a beginner

    1. Rachee says:

      I didn’t know you were hooking!! (See what I did there?) Have fun! That G hook will son turn into an H and then a J and then all of the hooks!

  3. Oh jeez, I think a size ten has always been my favorite knitting needle size, but I just recently started using my sixes a lotttt!

    1. Rachee says:

      I love the bigger needles although I did use tens for my last project.

      K hooks have become my favorite; love the (almost) instant gratification of a quick finish to a product.

  5. Favourite needle size I would say 8mm I like big chunky knits!

    1. Rachee says:

      I love big knits too! That lovely sense of (almost) instant gratification!

  6. I knit and crochet. My favorite hook is size E because it is the first one I ever used.

  7. Avril S. says:

    My favourite hook size is a K, and needle sizes a 10 🙂
