an exchange


When I finished my Cottage Garden sweater I was dismayed to see how much yarn I had left over. My New Year's resolution was to knit down my stash; the idea of adding almost 1000m of yarn was disconcerting. What do you do with 1000m? It's too much for mittens, but not enough for a sweater. So I called The Naked Sheep to ask about their return policy. And, yes, I was able to exchange them! What did I get? A bottle of Soak which was a must as I ran out after blocking the aforementioned sweater. A book of sock patterns, which is always handy. And one skein of Viola hand-dyed sock yarn in a colour called "Red Squirrel". I know, I know, that does technically qualify as adding to my stash .. but I figure it's one skein instead of five, and it'll be used up soon enough.

Awesome! I need to remember that trick - I have so many left overs in the stash that I don't know what to do with.

I LOVE Vintage Knitting Socks. Great trade!
