So my baby afghan spree has revealed a few items that are still floating about in my stash…
Such as this baby sized chunky afghan that finished off a couple skeins of patriotic red, white and blues on some giant needles…
Soft and Thick Patriotic Flavor
And this angelic little preemie/doll size of a hourglass eyelet stitch. I really like this stitch because even the wrong side looks pretty nice!
Front side, with a simple crochet edging.
Backside. Looks like a fancy basketweave.
And then there is this shawl I am finally going to look at finishing… because I finally found a yarn I think will go well with where I ran out of the last batch…
So now its off to see if I can finish the fans this month before I have to get started on a September Stocking, finish my snowflakes quilt and various other crafty projects!
So, a while back, I obtained some yarn from another knitters stash… and I am a fan of trying new stitches and finding ways to use up the yarn stash… so this one, the solid blue and the yellow are yarn that’s probably as old as I am (based on the yellow skein’s wrapper) so its well past time it got a new life.
This pattern makes a nice dimensional stitch.
I knitted it up until I nearly ran out of the dark blue… and I still have some light blue and yellow to play with! But its at least baby afghan size, so there is that.
After some blocking, laid out on my library/sewing table
Perhaps I shall have to make up some hats or booties or something…. As a bonus, this pattern made a fun picture to use as my cell phone wallpaper.
Rows almost look like diamonds
The colors remind me of a dress I used to own, with a denim bodice and a yellow floral long skirt… I loved that dress.
Pattern available on Ravelry.
