Then I do what I always do, I obsessed on the needles holding the socks. Should I pull the needles out, or should I wait? Maybe I'm going to find that yarn I need if I look just one more day. Of course, I couldn't knit anything because EVERYTHING I wanted to make I needed THOSE needles for. (I know I can get more needles, but why?).
I was so happy about finding what I needed that I immediately started on a hat:
It's called Palindrome and the free pattern can be found here. I also plan to make a scarf of some type to go with the hat with the 1-1/2 skeins left. The yarn is Plymouth Encore D.K. and here is a better picture of it in almost true color:
which is really a light gray heathered yarn with a bunch of other colors mixed in (blue, pink, tan). What that halo in the middle of the picture is, I can't guess, but I'm pretty sure the yarn isn't possessed.
Using up these skeins will represent 3 more skeins gone forever from my stash. I'd say the de-stashing is going pretty well.
