November stashbusting

Lots of successful stashbusting this month!

A green Odessa hat, a red Odessa hat (when I realized the pattern was for a much smaller head than my own), a Panta headband, a pair of fingerless gloves (nearly finished!), and a scarf I started with Noro Kureyon last night. There's also a drop-stitch scarf in Paton's SWS, but I forgot to include it in the photo.

A Shawl for the Running Bunny's Birthday

I gave Running Bunny Dorothy her Birthday Shawl yesterday, and she loved it! Without further ado, I present it to you. I really love how lace looks on her. After much diving through my stash and searching for patterns, I think I did pretty well -- even if I forgot to measure the final size of the shawl). ;)

Here are the statistics for your information (followed by more photos)

Pattern: Ostrich Plumes Triangle Shawl by Mary L. McCall

Yarn: (Body) 10 hanks Elsebeth Lavold's Angora in Colorway 008

Yarn: (Edging) 1 ball Artful Yarns Broadway

Needles: SR Kertzer Limited Bamboo 7.5mm circulars at 80cm

Only one ball gone!

I wanted a cover for my computer and had tons of yarn, so I grabbed the first ball of yarn that was relatively thick - Lion Brand Chenille, knit it up then added an edging with some stash Filatura Zara -- a computer sweater!

I'm now hard at work starting a sweater made entirely of stash red yarn!
