Stash Diving - scary but worth it!

So I dove into the old stash cupboard today - I've sort of got an idea of what is in here.....

  • projects of shame that are so close to being finished....but for some reason are not....
  • projects started.....but frankly were way over my knitting ability way back when they were bought....
  • yarn bought with no specific project in mind (my green phase LOL)

and then there are the "What WAS I thinking" yarns.

I have to make decisions about these projects, decide, take action, and move on.

In the WWIT category - we have two today.
