I have been in the process of a new design (aren’t I always). It started out simple enough as, a child hat pattern. Then of course it grew. Before I knew it I had done calculations for 5 sizes.
I got the child size made and was working on an Adult version, when I ran out (or thought I had) of Stylecraft Special DK in Sunshine.
Getting towards that last little bit of yarn, I crossed my fingers, crochet twice as fast, made my work a little tighter, but all in vain. I needed another ball!
I looked through the Stash. Nope! None to be seen!
I glared at the hat. I glared at the yarn stash, but it made no difference. So, with huge haste and a pout on my face (which really is quite silly, as the pout won’t help and it still takes about 10 days to get a delivery no matter how fast I order) I ordered another ball.
A couple of days passed and then I remembered. That cushion I started and grouped the yarn for! I am sure it had a ball of Sunshine in it!
After a small search I had Sunshine in my hand ( and the room did seem to brighten a bit on my finding it).
So I have a yarn order on the way I don’t really need (and yes, of course I added more yarn to the order than, that one ball) and I have a hat to finish.
Note to self: I must downsize my stash, so it is manageable and I must organise my stash, so yarn cannot get eaten up by it.
Wonder if anyone else’s stash, eats their yarn?
