Stash update

So I passed my exam. And I rewarded myself with yarn. Lots of yarn. What a great positive reinforcement for studying!

First we have Wonderwool, a yarn by Schoeller+Stahl. It looks terrible once you wash it, but it's super soft and warm. So it will be turned into something that rarely gets washed and is supposed to keep you warm. I'm thinking a colorful garter stripe scarf. And maybe a hat. Me being me, I'll probably only wash it once every two years. Good for the look of the yarn, not so sure about the message it sends about my personal hygiene. How often do you wash your hats and scarves?

Next Merino Mix, also Schoeller+Stahl. Also very soft. This will probably be a sweater of some sorts. I wash those regularly, in case you were wondering ;)

This stash update pretty much used up all the space I have for storing yarn. That means it's time to start knitting! For the sole purpose of freeing up storage space, of course!


  1. Mmmm, I can't wait for you to start, I can only imagine how impatient you are. I'm sure it will be super fast as the yarn seems really thick.

    As for washing my headgear, I'm sorry to disappoint you but I do tend to wash it quite often because I hate the smell of hats :/ I even wash my winter hats made of woolen cloth (štofani kačketi).

  2. Yummmy yarns!!!
    Congratulations on the passed exam!!
    I also reward my self with new yarn or crafty splays for a job well done.
    And this yarn looks great.Lately i am obsessed with white yarn and my eye cot on this one on the first picture.
    I had the chance to work with Schoeller+Stahl sock yarn and I love it. I can't wait to see what you make of this green yarn.

  3. Gdje si toliko Schoeller&Stahl-a nabavila? Imam jednu njihovu vunu koju planiram pretvoriti u prsluk, ali nikako da pronađem pravi model. Ova zelena mi se jako dopada.

  4. @romantales : U Zagrebu, Medulićeva 10, trgovina se zove Nana-san, prodaju uglavnom opremu za šivanje. Od vune jedino Schoeller+Stahl i imaju. Nije da se žalim ;)

  5. Vauuu, ovde će biti svega! Boje su divne, jedva čekam da vidim gotov rad ili makar samo početak:)!

  6. Njami, njami !
    Izgledaju predivno, mekano, i ono.... kao premazane voskom, znate na sta mislim :) ?

    I da, cestitam na polozenom ispitu !

  7. do sada niti jedan svoj šal nisam oprala! toliko o mojim higijenskim navikama!
    Lijepo si se počastila.
