It's a new year and it's time to update & organize our online stashes ladies!
Every start of a new year I try to go through my stash, clean it up and properly record everything on Ravelry. I try really hard each year to be pretty minimal with my stash. I usually only purchase new yarn and fabric when I have certain projects & new designs already allotted for them. I don't have a lot of space to store my yarn and fabric so being minimal is key. I also tend to get overwhelmed if it gets too large and sometimes finding myself forgetting about skeins I previously adored. It also helps keep my budget for yarn/fabric buying down too.
I was photographing some of my newest babies to add to my Ravelry stash and thought it would be fun to document them on the blog too. The yarns are so pretty that I couldn't just keep the pics in my boring ol'stash on ravelry. Plus I figured it would be a fun way to get you all to update yours as well and do some serious stash maintenance. That and I love seeing what yarn you guys have added to your stashes lately too! It's a great way to get inspired and also find new yarns to try.
The latest lovelies I've added to my stash are the gorgeous skeins from Nice and Knit (all DK) shown above,Hazel Knits new Worsted weight Cadence shown in colorway Laguna which is also scrumptious. Then my newest obsession is Woolfolk. Words cannot describe this gorgeous squishy yarn! I've been obsessing over it for a while and finally treated myself to some. I have not regretted it. It's amazing. I picked up some FAR in colorways 2, 5 & 9 and some Tynd in colorway 9. Can we say DROOL! I also have been preciously hoarding some of the fab Julie Asselin Leizu DK (she's Canadian!) in colorways Cove and Coraline.
It feels good to get organized and start fresh for the new year! I spent a lot of time cleaning and organizing my office and it's getting there. I hope to share some pics in the next few weeks...finally :) I think I've been promising to show my workspace for 4+ years..lol. Now that I have a "room" for my work I hope to be able to show progress shots as I slowly make it my own. I also plan on going through my WIP's and either finishing or frogging them. Some projects I've had sitting for 3 years! EEEK! It's time to cleanse the palette. Anyone else need to take care of their WIP's? This is a great time to do it! Sit down, photograph and document your stash on Ravelry and then clean up your projects too! You won't regret it!
Here's some pics of my latest yarn crushes. Make sure to comment below what yarns you're crushing on and have recently added to your stash! I love hearing about it!
