|Used the pink stuff|
It all came together in another log cabin blanket, one of my favorite stash-busting patterns.
The teal and grey marl, and a little teal and purple, are left over from my very first handspun, from when I first tried learning to spin several years ago.
I found knitting and crocheting always lured me more than the wheel I had at the time. So I ended up selling the wheel, and swearing I didn't need or want another hobby anyway.
Then I moved to Nashville and met a bunch of fun and friendly spinners, and got sucked back into the vortex. I'm so glad I did! Thank you, Christina, and the Nashville Spinsters!
This blanket is made of various kinds of wool, not machine washable, which means I will be searching for a place that will take it. I have a lot of leads for local charities who might not care about the machine washable aspect.
The thing about stash-busting is, if the finished object is still sitting on my couch, I haven't exactly lightened the load around here, have I? But I am hopeful!
