Knitting in ends
March 6: Bust That Stash!
Do you have lots of stash yarn that you have no idea what to do with? If you are a knitter you probably have a lot of single skeins that you “just couldn’t live without.” Maybe there are lots of single balls, perhaps there are little odds and ends from all the projects you have finished. Either way, it’s time to bust that stash. Busting a stash is kind of a big deal. All of us are proud nurturers of ever-growing yarn collections that challenge our conception of shelf space and our conception of available time.
BRING your favorite organization methods, using pre-existing patterns by way of substitutions, yarn combinations to share with the group!
PLUS Stash Busting Fashion Show – Show off your projects knitted from your stash yarn. We will vote a ‘best in show’!
TREATS will be provided and as always SOCIAL KNITTING encouraged!
Cannot wait to see you!
Thank you to the generous donors !
