Bustin my Stash



















Some more adventures in stash busting.

A felted cloche hat made from my Knitpicks WOTA.

A Rose of Sharon hat from Magknits.

And a hat made from a partial skein of Red Heart.

Down below there is a armwarmer from Spunmag made out of Suri Merino. I've been knitting and unknitting projects from this yarn for almost a year now. I'm not quite sure how I feel about this one either. I may reknit it but add an extra lace reapeat instead of ribbing at the bottom.

Finally there is my mini Market Bag. All it needs is a lining and it will be a nice little shoulder bag. Still many more skeins to go though.

    Damn you are fast girl! The cloche shaping looks perfect, what pattern did you use?

    Sheesh! Do you ever quit, woman?! Hee hee, j/k. Those are all awesome stash-busting projects, and they look great! You seem to be queen of the hats and scarves (and bags?).

    I agree with your thought on the arm warmer - less ribbing, one more lace repeat. But then again, that requires frogging and reknitting, so it's good to stay, too. What fabric will you use to line the bag?

    God I wish I looked as good in hats as you do. What a cute cloche hat. I love the shape of it!

    The white hat is fab and looks great on you.


    I really like the lace part of the armwarmers, they look really pretty in that yarn.

    Thanks everyone for the nice compliments! I may be feeling the first signs of hat burn out so I'm slowing my knitting roll by doing a sweater on size 5 needles. Fun times.

    Jennifer: the cloche pattern can be found for free here http://www.straw.com/cpy/patterns/iceland-splash-feltedhat.html

    Nanc: Since I'd only completed one armwarmer I don't feel so bad about doing it over. I may even make them opera length just for kicks. I have some sheer pink-red fabric that I think will show nicely through the mesh of the bag.

    I love the mini market bag. E-mail me a pic so I can include it in the gallery.
