An Inspiration, A Confession or Two and A Challenge

I've been a busy Elf this year.

These ladies keep me on my toes.

Princess the First has started crafting. It started innocently with some Christmassy sprinkles and some sugar cookies
and progressed to stickers and glue.

She completed these in one day, with some help from her Mama. It almost makes me think I should get cracking, too.

However, in one of my saner moments, I have decided to NOT do any baking this holiday season. Most years, I drag out large mixing bowls and roll cookies for hours on end. I fill my freezer with tasty morsels and give them to friends and family. Not this year. I have decided that I don't need the stress of it or the added calories.

Then I got this in the mail.

I may have accidently joined the Sundara Sock Yarn club. This is the first shipment of the Cool colours.

So now I'm not baking but I am swimming in sock yarn and yarn for several lace and sweater projects. This is beginning to weigh on me and so, dear Reader, I ask you to help me work through the stash. Let us come up with some clever and easy to stick to program that allows us all to use up our stashes and feel good about our fibre spending in this time of financial contraint.

I don't actually have a plan. I was hoping you could help me with it. We can call it our New Year's Resolution and form a support group. Can't wait to see what we come up with...

Dear J,
I think a stash is a form of a security blanket, you want to banish this?
Cheers Irene

I'm jealous!! Pet the nice sundara for me.

J. said...

Jocelyn, consider it petted.

You're some crafty ladies.
I got nothing. No good ideas here.

I'm going to do 2 lace shawls with stash yarn. And a sweater. After that I'm tapped out.

KAL anyone?
