WIP Wednesday!

I’ve been meaning to make a proper post since I came back from vacation -  I started a draft and everything.  Getting back into the swing of things at home and with school, has eaten up more time than I’d like to admit.

The first picture is the hexipuffs I made while at my recurrent training for work and on vacation.  I’m actually a bit surprised that I didn’t manage to make more since the instructors didn’t mind if I knit in class.  

The bottom two pictures are the Caldwell vest I’m working on for my husband. His birthday is May 5th, so I’m hoping that I can get it finished by then.  It’s also a kind of thank you, since he got me my wheel :D  He’s a skinny guy, so I’m trying to modify it for a snugger fit on him, but I’m hoping that I didn’t make it too slim.

I’ve been living in my apartment for 2 years, and I’m going to be moving soon (whether to a different state, or to another place in the town I currently live in…idk yet!)

however, my yarn stash has nearly doubled in size (whoops?) and I want to organize it all before moving so that the process is easier

does anyone have any tips on organizing their yarn stash?

I have my stash organized in a cabinet that looks a lot like this.  I separate mine by color, although I keep the bottom shelf open for yarn that I use specifically for my shop (it makes it easier to get to). 

My stash is quickly outgrowing my cabinet though…  I think one thing that I’m going to try to do on my next stretch of days off is to photograph and upload all of my stash to Ravelry.  I’ve been putting it off because I know it’s going to take forever, but I think it will help me remember what I’ve got so I’ll be more apt to use my stash up before looking for something else to buy…

I’m only with this if that’s coffee. :) Unfortunately, I’ve never really had the taste for tea.

Njor - God of the sea. Lace weight and fractal spun. It has a light blue-grey through black gradient from one end to the other with colour repeats in the same gradient throughout. It’s disgusting how gorgeous this yarn turned out.

Knitting Inspiration - Hooded Things Part 3

UNF. Such hood. This week I’m focusing on the lighter side of the hooded character spectrum: elves, pixies, dragon enthusiasts, and other rosy-cheeked woodland inhabitants. Lots of great texture, exaggerated shapes, and cosy crochet options in this set. I’m especially enamored of the little details you don’t necessarily notice in these pictures: the incredibly long point of the Dragon Watcher’s Hood, the little tassel on the Woodland Hoodlet, Hyperborea’s fantastic traveling stitches. And just in case you didn’t notice, that third design is a crochet version of the fantastic Through the Woods hood that you’re all so fond of.
