Use It Now!

don't save it for your estate sale, wisely says: Honeysuckle loom.

I have a 'special stash' of my own. Fibers that I don't want to spin, yarn that I don't want to knit. Some of it will probably remain in its current state, but there is plenty of stuff that I do want to use for that special something.

I decided years ago that my handmade items are now for me, if I make something for someone else, I have to be 100% sure that that person IS going to like it and use it. Since the bulk of what I make is for me or my house, the 'special' stash can be used.

I do not like New Years resolutions, those are seldom kept, but this year I will knit all the special sock yarn, weave the silk and the Tencel. Spin the silk and the cashmere and make stuff for me!

The 'special stash' alone is enough to keep me busy for quite some time...

Yeah, me too.
Getting to the age when I probably should use it :)

You go girl! Life's too short not to knit our most special fibers ... for ourselves :D

Well put! I don't like resolutions either, but those sure do sound like some excellent goals for 2010.
