Stash 1 Jen 2
Could this be the year that I use more yarn than I buy, certainly doing well so far. I completed my first socks of 2011 in Italy and now have these. The pattern is from one of my Christmas presents (could this also be the year I keep mentioning the C word) Favourite Socks from Interweave. The yarn is Aruncania Ranco Multi which I've used before to knit plain socks. I think the yarn works better with some pattern and this Undulating Rib by Ann Budd was just what I was looking for, interesting and easy to memorise.I have bought just one ball of sock wool this year, I can't show you because it's a surprise. I count this as a huge success and feel it justifies my scathing comments on other blogs where chums have already started their stash enhancement. I'm having another market stall just before Easter which is spurring me on to knit socks, already cast on the next pair not that I need much encouragement, and hopefully will reduce my considerable store of sock wool, until I weaken that is.
