I have to start somewhere.

Hi everyone, and thanks for giving my blog a look.

This all started from a challenge I gave myself for this Christmas season. Since I got back into crocheting and knitting, I've been making most gifts for close family and friends. But since my fiance and I just moved to Indianapolis, money has been a little tight. I decided that this year I would knit from my stash only. I also decided that the first things I would make for myself would also be from stash yarn. If I've paid for it, why not start using it. But I wanted to take it a step further. With the amount of money I spend on yarn, what's a couple more dollars for a pattern? But if I'm going to keep up this "free" theme, I'm going to use only free patterns found online or in books from the Indianapolis library.

But I don't want this to end with yarn. What other inexpensive things are there to do around the Circle City? To what extent can I utilize the FANTASTIC library in this county (even if they are cutting hours and things)? What will this new life hold for me? For my fiance?

That's right, I'm also getting married in 5 days. SO many new things are happening, all in a matter of a few months.

So, first thing's first. Time to get hitched. Then afterwards, Holiday Stash-down 2010 will begin.


  1. Howdy neighbor...I live in Columbus and my husband and I have a business in Greenwood. Go by the library and ask about information for the Super Scarves project (also linked info on my blog). You MUST go by my two fave knit shops...Mass Ave Knits in Indy and Cottage Knits in Columbus.

  2. Excited to see where this goes! Congrats on the wedding :D
