And (fill in title here), I did this today. I thought it would help organize my stash and would also help in some of those frozen 'what do I knit now" moments. The only rule is that the pattern couldn't be a mindless sock pattern. Which really would mean not a pattern at all.
The picture is my club....13 little kits (because I can't be a total sheep) that I'll randomly pick out and start this year.
I wasn't too imaginative...six of these are the yarn/pattern combos that I received as part of the Woolgirl Sock Club . But the rest are things that I've saved over time as wanting to knit, and then I went through my stash and matched with yarn. I laid it all out on the floor like this so that I could be sure I wasn't making too many pairs of purple socks (and note, only one purrple skein in the bunch). There look slike a lot of pink but there's actually two pinkish, two peachish, and one glow in the dark pink and orange. I've even thrown in some green there, even though I'm not a big green person, but the sock pattern has a tree on the back.
So that's it. It's all in a giant bag...I think I'll probably generate a random number and pull things out til I come to the number. But we'll see.
