Pomatomus Socks

Last week, I finished my Pomatomus socks by Cookie A. I had started on them at the end of January, but put them down sometime in February to try and motivate myself to finish some other projects that had been on the needles for a very long time. The yarn […]

Does souvenir yarn count as stash?

Sock yarn supposedly doesn’t count as stash, yet mysteriously does take up room in one’s luggage. Despite my … efforts (I would say “best efforts” but I’d be lying a little bit), my stash reduction program is not going quite as smashingly as I would have liked. Things are being […]
