Last night I went into the stash to pull yarn to match up with my new patterns. I had success and now have 6 kits awaiting knitting. I was contemplating which to start, and I just didn’t feel like winding yarn. Instead, I found a few luxuriously soft single skeins of a discontinued yarn, Classic Elite Miracle. I had bought this in three shades to start a sampler blanket with it because it is an amazingly soft alpaca tencel blend. I have this ball and a blue and taupe color. It never happened.
I decided to knit some baby things with it. I used a bit less than half to make this newborn size hat and I think I will make a pair of simple booties to go with it. And then make the same set in the other colors as well. Baby gifts on hand will be used as gifts or donated to charity and either way it’s out of the stash. I haven’t made a decision yet, but if I can knit down my stash by half, I can get a spinning wheel!
The above hat is Baby Hat from Leigh Radford’s One Skein.
