I’m Going To Use The Yarn I Have Before Buying More

Said no knitter ever. I was listening to The VeryPink Knits podcast and she said she doesn’t have a stash. I looked at my iPod like it was crazy. No stash? Really? How? 

Staci Perry went on to explain that she buys yarn for specific projects. She buys, then casts on so, no stash. With that inspiration, I started gong through my stash. Then through my needles and all the notions we knitters own. I divided the many measuring tapes, needle stoppers, little scissors, pens etc. I packed up three notion bags that I can take with me and my wips. 

Then I came across a needle sizing (gauge) tool. I insert my Addi’s that no longer had the size visible until I find the right fit. Well, something just wasn’t right. I could barely make out the writing on the gauge. Thinking to myself, geeze my eyes are getting bad, I can’t see what it says. 

I’m struggling to make out the numbers, then I see it. Drill Gauge. It’s a drill bit gauge not a knitting needle gauge!
That one goes into the garage.
