I am working on the Emerald Keep scarf for the Keepsake Tour, which of course means that I instantly want to play with something from my stash. Doesn’t that always happen?
So here’s what’s on my desk right now, that’s not the Keepsake scarf:
Top left is my character binder for the novels currently in progress, (Sealed by Duty and Sapphire Dream, in case you’re curious). Under that is my Franklin Planner. On its side is some pretty Caron Simply Soft Paints yarn, which I bought when I bought the yarn for the Emerald Keep scarf but am not using in it.
Which begs the question, what shall I make with it? ~rubs hands together~
Next is my keys. This is important. Hard to get into the house without them.
Don’t ask me how I know that. I don’t want to talk about it.
Moving right along, we come to the Caron ball band for the light green yarn in the Emerald Keep scarf. The glue failed and it fell off, so I brought it in here to make sure I have it up on Ravelry before I discard it.
The grey is for a possible pair of Quill’s Socks, which were featured in Emerald Fire and remarked upon by every editor who worked on it as well as several fans. Yes, Teeka finished the socks, yes, Quill liked them, and yes, I’ll feature a pattern for them when the website redesign goes live – and I might even make a pair of them to give away at some point. Though, in all honesty, I probably won’t have time to make them for this Keepsake Tour.
Next is the yarn I bought to make Rachel a pair of fingerless mitts she can use in the hot climate of the Nevada desert. I’ll use some kind of lace pattern on them, probably but right now I’m just sketching with it.
I realized I caught the edge of my little post-it note with Rule #11 from NCIS: “When the job is done, walk away.”
On the right of my desk, I have two needlework kits that I’m looking forward to starting. One is a ladybug which is in honor of the fictiious Ladybug Bed and Breakfast. The other is a lovely peacock I bought while visiting Rachel last month – I adore peacocks.
What’s in your stash?
