Knit up the Old, Make Room for the New

I'm broke. I make more money at my job that I ever expected to as a state employee, but I bring home less than I ever have. Damn adulthood and bills! I'm not doing so badly though. I'm very appreciative for what I have. Anyway, since I'm trying to do my best at controlling and curbing my spending habits, I'm knitting from my yarn stash instead of just looking at it dreaming.

This is a hat that I'm making from Jaspe Wool by Ella Rae. I got it from In the Loop on Divine Street in Columbia, SC. It's some beautiful stuff. The picture just doesn't do it justice. The colors are just so rich. The richness of it kind of remind me of oil crayons.

Oh wow, I love that yarn. Very pretty. Sometimes I wish I could knit, but I have enough half-done projects lying around. Maybe when I retire!

Good luck using up your stash. It is nice to have enough leftover to get more than one project out of it!! Those colors are gorgeous!
