There is also that word "self-indulgent" in the title of this post, and stashbusting can be very self-indulgent, whether you are knitting for yourself or for others. I'm even participating in a self-indulgent knit along in the Yarniacs podcast group, and I finished my first self-indulgent project earlier this month. Here is my Ripples shawl, knit with madelinetosh Twist Light, in the Care colorway, the sales of which benefitted Doctors Without Borders. A long-time friend gave me the yarn for Christmas in 2014, and the skein was barely in my stash before it was gone. I love all the happy colors in this yarn!
Light in Shadows shawl, and I'm loving working with Hazel Knits Entice in two beautiful colorways, Spooky Hue and Seattle KAL. Here is a peek, but you will have to wait until it's finished to see the whole shawl.
