Stash Update

I've been stashing quite a bit these past month. Although I have gotten rid of a lot of yarn, I seem to replenish at an exponential rate and really the cupboards are bursting in its seams.

I'm just going to show the prettiest yarn I have ever seen.

This is Avril's cotton gima - known to those in US as Habu's cotton gima. Doesn't it look gorgeous?

This is the mulberry colour.

And this is the olive one.

I got it to make Gisela from Cocoknits. I've been thinking of garments made with thin yarn and big needles for a while now. If you see any patterns, let me know. I'm on the lookout.

I also received more yarn to feed the blanket.

From Ravelry's August 5 gm sock yarn swap.

Some real yummy colours there.

Now let's see if I can get another FO out by the end of the month.

I really like the colours of cotton yarn. I am new to knitting and I've seen that kind of cotton at some of the yarn stores but not sure what kind of project would be good for it. As a more experienced knitter what do you usually make out of this kind of cotton yarn?
