About Stash Enhancement


Still valid is my goal of being mindful about stash enhancements. I am not one to get stressed about any upcoming show update. I don't have to knit with the hottest yarn in the market. But, if a skein strikes my fancy, I will let it come home without guilt.

I am enamored  with this Swans Island yarn. Check out their beautiful website: here.

Organic Merino | 525 yards | Fingering Weight | Natural Color Collection



The second skein screams "tropical spring" to me. It is from Three Irish Girls.

Adorn Sock | 430 yards | Fingering Weight | Wendy Darling colorway


Don't you think the yarns go along well? I need pattern ideas. Suggestions are very welcomed.


For a very practical discussion about stash enhancement, I recommend watching episode three of the "Hand Me My Knitting" podcast around the 22:41 time mark. Link here.

    1. Thanks Christine! We will see if I have the will power to knit with them right away or if they will sit in stash for admiration :-)
