I knit. And I cook, write, take pictures. All for one low price.

Ok I'll admit I have been kind of busy spending time on ravelry.

I started a group called Stash Knit Down 2008 and got over 350 members in 2 days. Wow.
I finally decided that I need to knit down the stash a bit. I have never liked any kind of yarn diets, and especially couldn't quite warm up to them when I was a yarn shop owner. Plus, I know myself. I just cannot commit to not buying any more yarn for a year, let's say. I just think that's cruel.
But ever since I learned how to spin and fell madly in love with it, I realized that I was beginning to become seriously unfaithful to the stash. Need. To remember. The yarn. In all those bins.
Turns out there are at least 350 other people who are willing to knit (or crochet) down the stash. I have a feeling that number is going to climb a bit yet.
If you are on ravelry, come visit.
My username is KarinMT. If you put a search in for my full name, Karin Maag-Tanchak, my patterns come up.
I am having way too much fun.

I just added you to my "friends" on Ravelry and joined your group. I'd love to knit down my stash a bit before Stitches in Feb., might not be much help, and how can I resist Stitches ;-)

I'm catching up on your older postings. The Solstice socks are really cute, shame on Knitty for rejecting it! I love the colors of your silk scarves. Wish I could have been at the open house.
