This morning I was inspired to photograph the part of my stash that's here in Austin. It's now up at Ravelry! So please peruse and feel free to offer suggestions for the stash yarn. In the process I unearthed a couple of WIPs that I'm newly inspired to work to completion: this Pi in the Sky Shawl, and a cutey-patootey moss-and-cable baby coat (no intended recipient yet).
The process of uploading everything to Ravelry also gave me new inspiration for a couple of the yarns. For example, at Stacie's house the other day, we re-discovered some Habu Textiles yarn that I'd almost forgotten about - two skinny silks, one a deep mallard-blue and one a neutral wheat color. I bought those together initially to make a stole or shawl; but today I discovered one skein of Lacey Lamb in a slate blue, and I suspect it will go beautifully with those two: an unintended match! The possibilities of combining those three yarns seem much more interesting than any of the yarns used by themselves.
Here's to a new year full of new ideas!
