Saturday Stash

Two weeks worth of reporting to do!  I didn't have the photos taken last week and just didn't have a chance to get at them.  At the end of this week, I felt like I'd been in a chess tournament.  So much plotting of strategy - I'm lousy at this - and trying to make sure that my queen isn't captured after two moves.  Since I know I am so very bad at it and it's important that the queen stay in play for as long as possible (and possibly win)...oh, I'm exhausted.  A good mystery novel will be the weekend remedy.  And here we go into what has kept me calm-ish...

I did finish the cardi for Gabby.  I had some fluffy pink stuff for trim and I knit some round balls instead of making pompoms.  It looked huge and it is a bit big for her but not as much as I thought it would be. 

The seasons changed at the craft corner and the scarves made a reappearance.  It's funny how, when things get a second airing, there is often more notice taken than when they were first put up.  So it is with this scarf.  The woman selling it wanted one for herself, too.  Luckily, I had enough yarn.

In an attempt to use up all the yarn, I made one more to donate for sale.  I still have enough left for yet another.  Maybe later.

I finished the Finchy Feet - finally but didn't get a finished photo.  Then I decided that I wanted to make some little socks, too.  Plain ones in fancy yarn...

and fancy ones in plain yarn.

A baby hat with a pompom.  I have remembered that I dislike making pompoms because they never look the way other people's do.  But the hat is cute and makes me think of Christmas windows.  I used the Top Down Pi Hat pattern and just did my own slip-stitch thing.  It all uses up sock yarn. 

I am trying out a basic pattern for girls' knee socks. Oddly, I've never made knee socks but I wanted to see if I could do it with the same amount of yarn that I would use for two adult socks.  I'm sure there's an easier way to figure it out but not nearly as much fun.

I will be back tomorrow with my weekly alphabet offering.  I haven't abandoned Blogland!

I think it's all lovely, but that cardigan is so special! I feel so inadequate when I think of how little I've accomplished knit-wise this week.
