Finished Objects....Woohoo!

I have been busy working on using up stash yarn to complete projects.  Here is a list of my recent accomplishments.

I worked on Boomslang as a gift for my friend Rebecca.  I posted about casting this on before, but was very vague in the description.  You can see her happily wearing it here.  I used Knitpicks Stroll Tonal in Golden and Stroll Solid in Ash, as well as a size 4 needle.

I also completed my first sweater for my 11 sweaters in 2011 project.  I present to you, VAILA!

I love this sweater.  I finished it just in time for Valentine's Day.  I made it with Malabrigo Worsted in the  Amoroso colorway.  I absolutely love it.  I made a few modifications by making it from the top down, and also adding a column of knitted stitches on the side to make a "seam".  It is warn and squishy, and I really didn't want to take it off. 

I have alse been making some projects from my miles and miles of stash. Here are a few of them.

I also received an exquisitely beautiful LaReine shawl from my knitting buddy Jane as a gift. She actually hand dyed the yarn, and our friend Angela designed the pattern. It is super gorgeous.
