After finishing and mailing my secret and complicated project, I was glad to be able to get back to some simple knitting this weekend.

I got quite a bit of knitting done on Blurple Waves, and thought about taking a better progress picture. Of course, I didn’t get around to it until after the sun went down, but it works:

P6130004

As you can see, it covers my double bed, and is almost halfway done length-wise! Java thought she would help me take the picture.

P6130005

Which was appropriate since her brother Pan was so helpful with my designing earlier.

As for the post title… I’ve decided to knit from my stash this summer. No new yarn! I have a lovely bunch of yarn already, and I just picked up some more on the LYS tour in May. I figured the summer would be a good time to focus on using yarn I already have. And because I don’t think I really showed it much after I moved, here is the stash in its home… the knitting nook.

It lives there with my knitting books and patterns, my spinning wheel, and the little table that I like to photograph yarn and socks on.
