....I'm still gradually working my way through my stash. At times it is heavy going, other days it is inspirational! I love the creative challenge of making something new from the now limited yarn at my disposal. So, without further a do, and whilst it's snowing outside - yep, even here in sunny old Dorset! - these are my January stash busting projects...
Project 1: Knitted man's cowl, knitted on a circular needle in stocking stitch using up some beautiful hand-dyed, hand-spun yarn from a couple of the clever girls at the Wednesday Wool Workshop. The Sicilian loved it, but it is destined for my brother!
Project 2: this has been on my 'to do' list for ever! I love granny squares, I hate sewing them together - solution, crochet them together as you work. It is slightly haphazard because I am using lots of different yarn and hook sizes. Once I've used up all the 'blues', I'm going to move on to the left over pinks, greens, greys etc.
Project 3: Surprise, surprise I've got lots of gorgeous summery linen and cotton yarn left over! Not to mention some really pretty ribbon. This project combines a bit of everything in a charming little bookmark.
Looking at my stash earlier this month, even I wouldn't have believed it would yield so much variety! And I've still got a project on the knitting needles to show you, but will save that one for later! Let me know if you'd like the pattern for the flower bookmarks and I'll post it asap. Keep warm and safe ;) xxx
