So I have started a new knitting project, but it doesn't use any of my new yarn! That is still being looked at and swatched and pondered over. In the meantime, I've started a linen stitch scarf using the contents of my 4-ply and sock yarn stash box.
I love linen stitch; it's time-consuming and grows slowly but it makes such a lovely fabric. And I love how you can take a big pile of yarn in all different colours, like this:

This will keep my fingers busy while I'm thinking about all the lovely things I could make from my new yarn! And it's easy to pick up when I have a few minutes.
Linking up with Handmade Monday again, go and take a look at all the lovely blogs!
