Last year, I discovered that I was in danger of being smothered by my yarn stash. What’s a crafty person to do when supplies are overabundant? Get crafting, of course. I organized my stash into color schemes: blues, reds, and naturals. The blue sampler throw was the first project I tackled. I just cast on and started knitting….
Miles and miles of stitches… enough to fit across my king-size bed.
Eventually, I became bored with stockinette, garter, and moss patterns so I opened up Barbara Walker’s A Treasury of Knitting Patterns to break up the monotony.
I was happy with the results. The only issue I had with this throw was running out of blue stash yarn before I got halfway up my bed but it is still snuggly on cold nights.
