This time the Capitol Hill Knitters of Doom got together for a stash swap. This always creates the issue of what to take. There’s plenty in my stash that I don’t need or will never use–but really does anyone else want it either? It turns out no one else wanted my dark blue “muppet” yarn. There’s enough for an adult sweater so I brought it back home to see if it wants to be anything yet. All the rest of my offerings found happy homes.

Knitting and laughter–what could be better?
