Knitting & Crochet Blog Week Days 6&7

So our week is coming to an end. This was a fun exercise and I enjoyed reading everyone else's answers. So without further ado ....

Revisit a past F/O

Bring the fortune and life of a past finished project up to the present. Document the current state and use of an object you have knitted or crocheted, whether it is the hat your sister wears to school almost every day, or a pair of socks you wore until they were full of hole. Or maybe that jumper that your did just didn’t like that much…

This is the sad story of my Holland Socks. I bought the yarn when Jerry and I went to Holland for a weekend getaway before Clark was born. I started the first Soctoberfest Mystery KAL with the yarn while I was on maternity leave. I LOVED these socks. The yarn was wonderful and I felt so proud of myself. Alas, one of the socks got lost somewhere. I have torn apart the dresser and my closet but I can not find it. However, I have the one lone sock in my drawer and I will probably keep it forever because of its sentamental value.

What a Yarn

There’s one love that we all share: yarn. Blog about a particular yarn you have used in the past or own in your stash, or perhaps one that you covet from afar. If it is a yarn you have used you could show the project that you used it for, perhaps writing a mini ‘review’. Perhaps, instead, you pine for the feel of the almost mythical qiviut? You could explore and research the raw material and manufacturing process if you were feeling investigative.

The sad truth is that I have not used many yarns. I have some Malabrigo Lace, Kidsilk Haze, Louet Gems and Dream in Color Smooshy in my stash but that is all the "luxury" yarns I have. I would love to try Koigu and Lorna's Laces sometime. I know I am weird but I just do not buy yarn all that much. I feel wasteful if I buy yarn without a plan for it. My stash is pathetically small but I like it that way.
