Stash Enhancement

Whoops! In all the holiday hustle and bustle, it's the poor crafting blog that gets shafted, I guess. I did finish hub's hat and scarf, even if I was weaving in the ends on Christmas Eve! He says he's very grateful to have them -- especially when he walked home in an ice storm without them! I also was commissioned to make a co-worker a scarf, which I managed to complete this morning and hand off. It's only two weeks late ... right? :) And one of hub's co-workers is interested in a scarf. But now that I work at a yarn store, I have no time to play with yarn!

Speaking of, I've engaged in some serious stash enhancement lately. I bought two balls of Rowan Kidsilk Night on sale (and no, I don't get the employee discount on sale items!) in a gorgeous gray, and I just know they're going to make a beautiful Ice Queen. Now to learn lace ... I also bought four skeins of Noro Silk Garden to make another Noro Striped Scarf, even though I'm not done with mine yet! I have a lot of crafting to keep me occupied ... and warm. :)
