Does Handspun Count as Stash?
I have almost 540 grams of handspun in the colors shown on the left (four colors, plus one more on the wheel right now). The plan is to do a linen stitch rectangular shawl knit 'long way'...ie, cast on 265 stitches. I'll alternate every row and leave a long tail for fringe. It may only take about 20 or so rows (we'll see, I forgot to measure the gauge swatch for that, oops).
I also started a pair of STR socks in a beautiful mediumweight colorway called 'Terra Firma" and also "Tempting" in Cotton-ease. Not surprisingly, none of these projects are anywhere near photography-ready.
