Cotton Yarn Stash
I am unpacking my yarns into my fiber studio.. I have been purchasing cotton yarn for months now- building my stash and then started purchasing some new colors once I got the MD book. I also started purchasing Knit Picks Crayon- pima cotton. It makes nice facecloths and washcloths for babies- soo soft (I also plan on knitting a shawl out of it-striped full of all the fun colors)... Anyways.. my mom brought me over 3 huge bags of yarn the other day.. Tons of dishcloth cotton!! all brand new- she found at a thrift store.. I can officially say for the time being that I have enough dishcloth cotton! She also brought big balls of yarn of reclaimed yarn from sweaters.. My mom unraveled them.. There is wool, chenille, ribbon yarn, and other novelty yarns all waiting to be knitted into shawls!
The basked under the telephone table is half pima cotton skiens and half sugar and cream- the long skinny skiens are fingering cotton- there are about 10 of them. The shelves contain all dishcloth cotton. I will be knitting lots of dishcloths, towels and ball band wristlets and tp covers for christmas..
I am having fun organizing my yarn stash.. Dh just brought up several more boxes of wool yarn! I need more shelves I think!
Many Blessings, Debra
info which will be my next purchase
"treasures" on view as it makes my stash of cotton seem a little less over powering. Maybe I WILL knit it all....already have 45 warshrags knit and ready for gifts made during the heat of August. There is lots of knitting fun ahead for you.
Sorry, I passed out from yarn/fiber studio/organization/jealously syndrome.
I'll be okay. Just hold some cotton yarn under my nose & help me up.
Thanks, much better now.
You have a knitters paradise! Just beautiful.
and that is awesome that your mom scored all that great yarn at the thrift shop! have a great weekend!
I made an extra $2000 a Month Using this site!!
I love my space and thankful for it.
Thanks for all the great comments..
