Saturday Stash

A little knitting this morning. A phone chat with my daughter.   A lazy brunch of Eggs Benny on crab cakes and a leisurely stroll through the park.  Now I'm back to share my stash news for this week. 

The reason I was knitting first thing this morning was to finish this little cardi for Gabby.  Had to have something to show for a week - plus an extra day!  I have had these little airplane buttons for ages and this was the perfect blue sky project for them.  How high can you fly over the leafy treetops? 

I also tried my hand at another pair of slippers for donation.  They are supposed to have flowers on the toes and I made the first four petals.  But then I got bored and the petals were too big.  So, I made bows with buttons, instead.  I think somebody's grandma will like them. 

Last up, is another pair of the Lismore Cable socks.  I needed to test the pattern I've written up.  It still has to be typed and PDF'd for ravelry but the process is in motion.  These are anklets and I think they are the perfect Easter sock.  Remember those white cotton anklets we girls wore with our new Easter dress and hat? 

I'll leave you all with an Easter bouquet.  My sister brought these over the other day as a thank you for looking after her two dogs.   That pitcher is at least a foot tall so these are massive blooms.  And such a sunny yellow.  Or spring chick yellow.  Your choice.

love the flowers Stephanie, so bright and cheery. The pitcher isn't half bad either!
As always, your stash creations are very impressive. The cable socks are fab, I definitely will try these whenever you put the pattern on Ravelry. It will be my summer knitting project! I do remember ankle socks with a new dress, so well!

The cardigan is adorable with those buttons! I didn't knit much this past week. Just felt kind of blah. You give me inspiration here though so I better get busy!
