Welcome to Kelene Kinnersly Designs
Can we talk about discontinued yarns for a minute?
There are days when I look at my stash and I can hear the yarn screaming “me, me, knit me!”.
As a designer I hesitate and think that I can't use it. I worry knitters will be upset if I do a design in yarn they can't find.
But...I’m not sure that’s true. Especially since I design shawls and scarves which are more easily adaptable to other yarns.
This week I will be releasing a little shawlette design I knit up in some Nifty by Plucky Knitter. It was a gift and the pink is soooo pretty but sadly its been discontinued.
Then, I thought about all the knitters that love to use up their stash and are flexible with yarns, and figured it would be okay to design something little with it.
I really hate to see yarn go by the waste side, I really do.
But for shawls and scarves, I think its safe to use, and it makes me feel good using it up.
DO you feel the same way?
