. . . look like a giveaway!
“No matter how wonderful things used to be, we cannot live in the past. The joy and excitement we feel here and now are more important.”
--- Marie Kondo
I am going through my yarn stash, which is probably not as extensive as many people's yarn stashes, but certainly includes more yarn than I can ever knit up, even if I live a good, long time. I have some really lovely yarn . . . that I will likely never use. Nice yarns, pretty yarns . . . that just never seem to be quite what I'm looking for when I want to knit something.
It's time for me to let them go -- out into the knitting world where they may "spark joy" for someone else.
Each month (or maybe more often, we'll have to see), I'm going to offer something from my stash here on a Sometimes Monday. If it "sparks joy" for you (or for someone you know), just let me know in the comments section at some point during the week. On the following Friday, I'll package it off and ship it to you. (If more than one commenter wants the yarn, I'll have Tom draw names from a hat.)
First up, I am offering a Reykjavik mitten kit from Carol Sunday. (That's a Ravelry link there, if you're not a Ravelry user, you can see the kit here, on Carol's website.) The kit I have is in the charcoal colorway.
This is a beautiful mitten knit with lovely yarn. I've had it in my stash for . . . a good, long time. And every January I take it out and consider it. And then I put it back and say, "Not this year." (Clearly, this project is not going to happen in any year.)
It's just not sparking joy for me. But I'm hoping it may spark joy for one of you! Because this yarn is too lovely to just sit there in my stash.
So. If this kit (or even just the yarn) sparks joy for you, just let me know sometime this week in the comments. I'll be happy to send it off to you.
Have a great week. And stay warm!
