Stash Fast

This year for Lent I decided to give up buying yarn (I also gave up tasty cakes- but that’s another matter entirely). It shouldn’t be too hard I have a little stash. I also have a few WIPs going all from stashed yarn.

I have the Bahamas Socks (Turkish Walrus) started with the blue yarn from my blanket for the toe, heel and top. As apposed to striping all the way up. The rest will be knit in plain stockinette with  Koigu Painters Pallet Premium Merino (100% Merino, 50 g, 175 yds/160 m,  Colorway; P113 ). I have two skeins of it and I’m just going to see how long I can make them.

I’m also working on Rosie’s ‘Big Sister’ present. As I found out the new baby is due in the beginning of April, not May, I’m trying to finish it this weekend and send it down next week some time.

I’m using the left over Silky Wool XL from a pair of legwarmers I made for a friend. I hated them so much I didn’t even take any pictures of  them. There was nothing wrong with them. I just hated them with an unjustifiable passion. The belly and ears are of some super soft yarn I’ve had stashed for a couple years. I can’t really remember what it’s called but I’ll look.

My other WIP is a SHEILD beanie. The logo for the intelligence agency mentioned in the Marvel movies is emblazoned on the front. I have all the colorwork done and I’m just starting the decreases. The yarn is a little over one skein of Caron Simply Soft and an unknown grey worsted weight yarn of an acrylic nature.

I think I’ll be sufficiently covered until Easter.
