Spring is almost certainly upon us in full force now; the last bit of the cold weather is starting to melt away, while flowers tenderly start shooting up from the ground and the grass begins to green. Spring is a season of life and rejuvenation, spring ushers in warm weather, sunshine, and flowers. Out with the old and in with the new, as they say.
Part of that phrase entails the often therapeutic activity we know as spring cleaning. Spring gives us the perfect excuse to clear stuff out of our closets, boxes, nooks, and crannies. If you’re a knitter of any experience your stash will undoubtedly come into consideration. You’ll have to ask yourself which items in your stash can stay, and you’ll have to decide what has to go. Of course, one easy way to turn that problem into something new and useful is to pull out a couple of stash buster patterns and turn those bits of scrap yarn into beautiful and useful objects.
