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.
A Button tab hat for my friend's girlfriend (Birthday Present)
A Thermis for me (Still needs buttons)
A Scrunchable Cowl for me.
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.
Whew! Time to get started on LaReine for mommy in a Kumquat colorway!
