Stash Knit Along :: Sock Yarn Edition

The New Year is here, and along with it a slew of yarn and knitting-related resolutions. A few floating around the internets:

  • Knit/crochet holiday presents throughout the year
  • Knit 12 sweaters/shawls/pairs of socks in 2012
  • Knit/crochet x number of skeins before I can buy more yarn
  • Finish all my works-in-progress before starting a new one
  • Knit down my stash of sock yarn.
  • Buy no new yarn except for gifts knitting.

Here at Stash we’ve conjured up a way to have your stash and knit it too.

Sock Yarn Knit Along Winter 2012

Want to knit down your stash this winter? Looking for a reason to buy that skein of sock yarn you’ve been coveting at the shop? Want to try a new technique with the safety net of a few talented knitters?

We have dreamed up two fun ways to participate in the first ever Stash Knit Along:

Option 1: Knit the Paper Moon Socks by AnneLena Mattison, a free toe-up pattern from Knitty. Use stash yarn or buy something new! Sweet Georgia Cashluxe Fine would be a delicious option.


Option 2: Knit the Hado Slouch Hat, a pay pattern from Olga Buraya-Kefelian. You can use up leftovers for the stripes or buy one of our kits made up of Shibui Sock.

Either option provides an opportunity to knit a juicy, fun pattern along with your fellow Stash-ers. I plan on tackling toe-up socks with this knit along, something new to me.

We will cast on January 18th, so think about what you’d like to knit. There is already a Ravelry thread where we can share our projects, questions, and encouragement, as well as Stitch Night on Wednesdays.

Who’s in? What adventure will you choose? ; )
