stash rationale

Finished two things this weekend, but they are both presents, so stay un-photographed for now.

I have decided to take the It is Rocket Science appraoch; its not stash, its "unassembled socks". So have been happily lurking on sockwool sites today. I think here could provide me with the stuff for a pair of two-colour ones I want to make.

Still, I've said poo to the socks for now; I'll leave them all till the olympics (where I'll challenge myself to do three pairs in the sixteen days). So I got my merino chunky out to have a very-unportable (but very seasonal) cardigan. At least a chunky-weight could well be done by the time the olympic torch is lit. Plus I'm happy for it to be a home knitting project and try to read on the bus for a week or so. And its FREEZING out there. I need a warm layer!
