In the Stash

Lion Brand Homespun Yarn, "Harvest"


I have LOTS of yarn in my stash. There's an excellent reason for this. Paraphrasing yarny writer, Stephanie Pearl McPhee....."While I have a full-time job, I'm acquiring yarn. Once I retire, I will not have as much disposable income. So, I'm stashing yarn now for my retirement years."
This makes perfect sense to me. Thank you Stephanie.
I came across this interesting pattern. The cardigan consists of two hexagons sewn together (with a few adjustments). There are a couple of different versions of this pattern on Ravelry. Since I have lots of stash yarn, I decided to give this pattern a try. I've finished half of the cardigan and I really like it! Of course, the yarn that I'm using is in fall colors, so I can't really wear this piece for a few months, unless it gets unseasonably cold this summer in Los Angeles. More photos to come.
