Start & Stash

A few weeks ago I got some new yarn stash (here). I resisted as long as I could, but I couldn't help starting something.

I started the infamous Hitchhiker by Martina Behm using Cascade Heritage Silk Paints in 9996.

I am making decent progress at the moment, though that will slow as the rows get longer and the scarf gets bigger. I am really enjoying this though. 

Only 1/4 of the way through it and already I'm planning several more of these using different colour ways, different yarn weights, different needle sizes! I'm so excited about the possibilities that sometimes I spend more time online looking and thinking about it then I do actually knitting!

Which of course means that more stash had to be acquired. My LYS has been having summer sale events every Wednesday … I am in deep trouble! During the last sale I only picked up 4 skeins …

A skein of Cascade Heritage Silk Paints in 9789 (potentially a Magine shawl one day):

A skein of Cascade Heritage Silk Paints in 9808 (potentially another Hitchhiker):

And 2 skeins of Cascade 220 Superwash Paints in 9879 (potentially a supersized Hitchhiker):

So many plans and not enough knitty time!!
