Saturday Stash

I'm sneaking away from the kitchen to post this.  We're having family for a BBQ dinner tonight and things must be done.  But I do have a kind of discipline and I told myself that when two salads were completed, I could do this.  Obviously not a lot of knitting going on right now.

This is one of the lace inserts for my blue pullover.  Doesn't really look like much does it?  I have to graft the live stitches to the two shoulders and then figure out what that tab thingie is for.  The neck, I think.  These inserts don't take long but they're fiddly.  They are knit in the the round like a doily. 

And because I have need more stash help,  here is a baby cardi.  Sharp eyes will recognize this as the remnant from my garden sweater.  I picked out a pattern that was a gansey pullover and promptly changed just about everything.  The gansey design became cables.  The bottom edge became garter stich.  The whole thing is also to be made into a cardi as I didn't like the pullover neckline.  I think I'm not anywhere near Kansas now.

And that's all for today.  I have my eye on a couple of patterns from the latest Love of Knitting mag but I think I have to finish at least one project first.  Oh, and I have my red sock still to finish.  It involves squinting at the chart on my laptop which seems to be a barrier right now.  But, never fear, there is always more yarn, more patterns and just as little time.

I'm intrigued by the blue 'inserts' - hope you'll show us the finished item? :-)

I'm intrigued, too.

Sorry I've not been around so much. I've been out of town in an area with really crummy internet signals. It's good to finally be home.
