Weaving – a way to solve SABLE?

Knit & Run Stash

Knit & Run Stash

This Knit & Tonic article made me grin and rang a few bells … I get so obsessed with one particular craft it almost becomes stressful and I have to take up another craft to relieve the pressure.  Admittedly it’s not a professional day job and I’m not writing a book, but you get the gist.

Reminded me too of an article in this month’s Yarn Forward magazine which encourages you to take up weaving if ‘you find yourself in a SABLE position – Stash Acquisition Beyond Life Expectancy).  The picture  on the left is a very small part of my own amorphous and ever-growing Stash – I have to agree with one of the comments on the Knit & Tonic article … I have this horrible feeling that if I took up weaving I’d find I didn’t have the right shades I was after and just end up adding to it.  I almost expect to come home and find bits of it trickling out of the door, growing up the side of the house like vines.  A knitting horror movie?  Now there’s a thought.

    I stumbled across this site while researching vintage yarn I bought at a thrift store. I laundered and balled into a cake and found no moth damage. I just thought I’d let you know the yarn is as durable as the patterns. The label read: Lee Target, CAMPANULA 2 ply fingeringmothproof for life(registered in England), made by George Lee & Sons LTD. Wakefield. Just a gee-wiz thing.

      Great to hear, thanks for sharing – it always amazes me that yarn from that era can survive intact for so long. How much do you have – enough to knit a jumper?!
