I mentioned before about cleaning up with WIPs and organizing my knitting stuff now that my craft room is usable. I found just the example I was talking about. I was going to purchase size 9 24" needles for a new project ... and I found just that in my stash ... I really don't know what I have for needles. One of these days I will sit down and make a list ... tried before, not sure what happened with that.
This is one of the projects on my list, it was supposed to be a Christmas gift in 2008. As you can see, its nowhere near completion, but getting there. This is one of those projects that isn't easy to take with you. There are 12 different colors and each color uses a different number of rows, so its not easy to figure how many skeins you need to take up x amount of time. I had it on 16" circulars, but somebody decided to floss their teeth with them and now one needle point is all chewed up. So they are on straights now, which I am actually liking better anyway, but didn't need to lose a needle set to find that out!!
I had a real craving to go and buy yarn this weekend, so instead, I took one of the plastic tubs up from the basement and dug through that and touched things. There are some skeins of yarn I forget I have, so its like shopping all over again, but its free!
