This time I am going to be accountable to YOU. You can encourage me, and I hope help yourselves too. Let's all knit the stash, recycle old projects and create without shopping. Think how refreshing that will be, and the sense of pride of a frugal job well done. (and think of the free space in your storage units, that will welcome LOTS of new yarn when the diet is over and we are again lean, mean, knitting machines!
Here's my latest knitting project, done so fast I did not have time to photo and document! Love the 6mm quick knits. It was started on the friday of the long weekend, and finished today. That's 9 days. Lucky it was such a deal from Elann last month. JJ's handpainted Mohair. I used the pattern from JJ's enclosed with the purchase, but ran out as I was finishing the sleeves, so could not work the collar suggested. I had in my stash, a teal Debbie Bliss Alpaca-Silk, that knit on 4 mm needles, so picked up the collar with that and did a little stand up job, and to make it match better, I did some Icord loops sewn to the right side, opposite teal buttons. I think it looks rather smart. My new spring jacket.
Next: A cotton - Linen tank top, *** from my stash**** :)
