Stash Highlight

001-001

You know, I have a lot of yarn in my stash. A lot of pretty yarn. A lot of good yarn. A lot of special yarn.

And yet, I’ve never really shared it with you all here. I don’t know why that is. So i think starting today, weekly, I will give you a little glimpse into my stash.

Maybe highlighting my lovely yarns will cause me to knit them. Maybe it will quench my shopping thirst. or maybe it will make me want to buy even more yarn to show off.

Who knows.

Today I am highlighting a skein of yarn I recently purchased from a dyer on etsy. Etsy.com is one of my favourite places to buy cool skeins of yarn. This one is no exception, it’s so pretty!

Let me give you the deets of this skein:

Superwash – 80% merino 20% nylon
400 yards, called “Hellebore”
By LadyBug Fiber Company

I heard about Ladybug Fiber Company through the knitgirllls, a video podcast I sometimes watch (I have much more time for audio casts). They are sponsored by them and have a coupon code to use as well. I decided to check it out and fell in love. You should probably check them out too. They don’t have anymore of this colorway but they do have some pretty snazzy stuff right now. I accidentally just fell in love with self striping “Narcissus”. Must. resist. temptation.

It looks different than I expected but I adore it. I have a project all planned out for this sucker too. Harvest Dew socks by Rose Hiver. I love the pattern and guess what, it’s free!

I think the variegated colors of this yarn will look great in it…at least I hope so! I like that the designer is from Quebec too, I always like seeing amazing designs from fellow Canadians 🙂 Luckily there’s tons of talent from here, and everywhere else too!

The only thing is…I have no idea when I will actually cast these on. For now, it’s back to the bin we go. But I had fun looking at one of my pretties 😉

  1. oooh, i love the idea of a stash highlight! i frequently go through my stash and dream about what i could make with it, and then forget what it was that i thought was so perfect for it. what a great idea! (hi, hellebore!)

    • Yeah me too! Or I will realize i don’t even have the patterns queued and I might forget them, stuff like that. This way I SHOULD remember, and it excites me all over again about my yarn 🙂
