one of my good friends has undertaken stash-busting, and is doing it in a really cool way (i think!). she is in a very transitional place right now, so a lot of her possessions are in storage. so! she has begun the process of stash-busting by taking out one bin of yarn from storage, and knitting what she can with what is in it.

how great is that? some of the coolest things are born of limitations!

there’s no real way for me to replicate those same types of limitations (unless you guys can think of one? but my stash storage means that i have pretty easy access to most of it at once), but i would love to support her endeavor in stash busting… so i am!

what i got:

2 skeins misti alpaca chunky in marina melange. approx 216 yds.

i could make:

gap-tastic cowl


state street cowl.

what do you think? tell it to me straight.

EDIT: poll closed as of September 6. as of 9/6, gap-tastic cowl won (15 to 14). thanks for voting! FO soon!

or if you have a better idea, tell me in the comments!
