Me and my yarn stash challenge

Wow, I can’t believe I actually started this blog. Weeks and weeks the idea has been circling in my mind until it has left several holes that won’t allow for concentration on much else.

I guess I should start by introducing myself, my name is Sol and I am a bit obsessed with crochet lately. I learned to crochet when I was about 10 years old and have had periods in my life when I haven’t touched a hook for years and others when I need one every day. These days is mostly the latter, and I have to say it is the longest I have been crocheting without getting bored and moving on to other hobbies.

So why did I start this blog you may ask? Well, I like writing and crocheting so blogging fits, but the main reason is because in the last month I have left my comfort zone and started challenging my creative side (fingers crossed to actually having one). I have started playing with stitches, patterns and colours mostly because of my personal challenge to start using up my yarn stash. I am sure I am not the only one that looks at the piles and piles of yarn in the corner of the room without much guilt (I mean it’s yarn, you are supposed to have loads and pet them every once in a while) but a tight budget has forced me to use up my stash and with that I am pushing my logical, linear, black and white mind to the limits.

And then I thought, why not blog about it? An engineer trying to mix up yarns, find or even create new patterns might be of interest to some and if you guys like them I can post them for you to enjoy.

So if you are not totally bored by now I will show you the current suspects…


I am not crazy about this yarn, a friend left it for me after she moved back home. It is nice enough but I wish it was more pink and less brownish. Anyway, I am already swatching some ideas with tunisian crochet and if I find anything I like you will be the first to know 😉

Have a great evening x
