Saturday Stash

The sun has been shining this week!  I just thought I'd share some good weather news for a change.

My stash-busting has slowed down some.  Two, or three, depending on how you count have been finished.  The scarf  is all ready to keep someone warm.  Here it is posing in the cabbage patch.

And my never-ending cone of white cotton has yielded this bit of instant glam for a very tiny girl.  Since tinies need their wee hats, I added a little beanie to go with it.  I used the Abagail Sweater pattern by Kay Squared which is one mighty adaptable design.  Mine looks nothing like most and that's all down to the yarn.  I would recommend it for a quick and easy welcome to the world project.  If I were a new mom, it would be great to have just to pop over the T-shirt and tights for an outing.  I'm not donating this one yet because grandbaby Number Four is arriving in September...could be a girl!  And it could be pretty warm.  I notice I've used a lot of 'small' words for this.  It is very much a newborn size.  So, not very practical.  But isn't that what glam is all about?

And, still on the needles is Charlie's Choice.  Like him, it's growing fast.  From what I had in my stash, he chose a beautiful sky-blue that makes me smile whenever I look at it.  I couldn't wait to cast on for this design.  Who wouldn't want to knit up something called Laughing Carrots?  Sabine Riefler has done a good job creating a cardi with unusual cabling. 

That's my knitting week all wrapped up.

My fave is the scarf, I think. What a gorgeous pale apricot color!! And the texture of the wool looks so dainty and fuzzy.

Tell the truth...your knitting needles use rocket fuel, right?

You are a speed demon. Don't think I've seen anything like it in awhile.
