Here's all my yarns that I have been storing in the drawers of a small chest in my studio.
Leftovers, ideas that never materialized, just pretty yarn I bought one day. I think you know the drill. I'm going to challenge myself to use it up. No new pattern or project.
I'm going to see how long a strip I can make using plain knitting, double strand, 6 inches wide.
Do you find the simple act of knitting relaxing like I do? Especially when you're just doing the knitting and not following any pattern? I have lately found myself looking for something to do while sitting on the porch in the warmer weather. Something mindless, something relaxing, something with no particular end in mind. Something to do while thinking and sorting.
I don't know how long it will take me but now I will have something to turn to when I want to do something but I don't know what it is. It's portable, useful, and later on I'll tell you what my vision is for that long strip I'll be making. No deadline, no pressure, just simple knitting for simple times for simple relaxation. I like simple do you? The other photo is that of my simple beginning. I think one of the best parts will be changing colors.
