Inspired by Simple Sparrow’s idea, I have signed up for the Use What You Have Month. Things have started to pile up in the workroom (now that it exists), and anyways my funds are limited until I get another job, so this seems like a good plan for the next few weeks.
I’m including all craft in this – knitting, sewing, and making in general.
I keep saving things for best or for later, and then months pass and there they still are. I’m sure I’m not alone in that. 🙂
In other news, I have started a pair of argyle socks, based on the ones See Eunny Knit designed. As with most of my socks, I took the main pattern design (minus the seam up the back – though that may come back and bite me in the arse) and used my own choice of heel and toe (or rather I will when I get to them.)
I have been promising to myself that I will get more experience of colour work, (last year it was lace, this year it’s colour). This project is a perfect way to start.
Later in the year I’m planning to knit the Deep Argyle Vest, and the argyle jumper in Handknit Holidays. Mind you there will also be shawls (maybe in May once my stash-fast is over) and lace socks.
