I've realized recently when trying to find a place for all my yarn (remember my beautiful yarn chest? Yep, it's full. A Flash Your Stash post should be coming soon) that I have bought some amazing yarns at the LYS I've visited, but have yet to use any of it. I think I've avoided it because I don't want to "screw it up", which is silly, but there you go. I'd love to try and knit something with some of it, but I'm not quite sure what. So, I'm calling upon all of you to help!
Here's what I have to work with, or are my requirements:
- I want to work with needles that I have. Since it's Christmas coming up, I'm trying not to buy anything for myself this month. So far, so good. Here are the sizes/type that I currently own (I'd love to try my other KnitPicks ones since I've used the Harmony):
Knit Picks size 6 acrylic interchangeable with 24" cable
Knit Picks size 7 Harmony wood interchangeable with 24" cable
Knit Picks size 8 nickel interchangeable with 24" cable
Clover size 8 straight
Clover size 10 straight
Clover size 11 straight
Clover size 15 straight
Susan Bates size 5 circular with 16" cable
Clover size 8 circular with 16" cable
- Obviously, a pattern that isn't too hard, but I would like one where I could learn something new knitting wise with it. So far, I've only made dishcloths, and started that scarf that I frogged.
- I'd like the pattern to be free.
- I'd like to use some of my LYS or Knit Picks yarn. You can find a lot of it listed here in my Stash on Ravelry. Obviously, I can mix and match, especially the ones that are the same brand, but different colorway.
