It's a virtual rainbow of baby booties. Call it obsession if you want. I'm calling it "stash-busting" ... once I finish the last two pairs in periwinkle blue that'll be every inch of baby weight superwash wool in my stash knitted up! And then I'll be foraging through my sock yarn scraps to knit the sock legs that finish these booties.
You see the end of the month is fast approaching, and I'm part of a Ravelry group called "Surmount the Stash". At the beginning of February I'll be updating my progress on working through my stash and I'd dearly love to report that I'd worked through the ALL baby yarn. That's a little unrealistic though; once I finish these baby booties I'll still have about 125 grams of acrylic baby yarn left. That should be enough to make a couple of newborn hats for the local hospital. Let's see if I have the willpower to apply myself and work through it all!
Here in Toronto we're enjoying spring for a day with temperatures in the double-digits. The snow - what little there was - has all melted and today at lunch I was walking around outside in shirt sleeves! Hopefully you're enjoying your Wednesday just as much. Have a look at the links at Tami's Amis to see what everyone else is furiously working on!
