More stashbusting!

I am so excited about Rebekah's Blanket of Hope project! I did a lot of stashbusting (and the best kind - partial skeins and leftovers!) to create 9 "squares" and I hope to finish more! Here's what I sent:

3 balls gone!

I *finally* finished my Filatura di Crosa 501! Awhile ago I bought 10 skeins. I made Katrina Rib. I made a pair of socks. And the yarn still kept showing up! So I decided to work on a second Red Scarf for the Red Scarf Project. Ultimately I finished at least 2 balls of 501 on this scarf, and almost 1 ball of Jaeger Baby Merino. Hallelujah!

Removal from Group

Please remove me from the blog ... I'm having blogger issues with my own blog and am trying to resolve them by eliminating myself from all other blogs.

Thanks. :)

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!
