March KFYS Update

Knit From Your Stash Update

Well I'm doing great but I did have to go out and buy some yarn. I only had one skein of a cadet blue that I was using to edge an afghan I am working on, so I went out and bought 2 more skeins. And that's ok because I had allowed myself to purchase more yarn IF I needed it to complete a project.


This is the afghan that I've been working on using up most of my odd bits and leftovers.
It's basically garter stitch on #6 needles and a crochet edging.



I've joined up some of the squares - these are the diagonals.





Meanwhile on the back burner are these little projects lined up and waiting for their turn.



And I'm being tempted by this cute baby sweater on f.p's blog.

Plus my sister ordred this vest pattern from Patternworks and I am supposed to be knitting up a sample.

Comments on some Comments

Thank you to Needles of Steel for the picot hem advice - I think I'll try it all in one next time.

Pam I have a Bond knitting machine or USM/ISM.

And yes, Debbie, I have tried EZ's Mocassin sock pattern - I like it but it is not that quick and easy to knit up.

O course I have to ask, where did you get these WIP's baskets? They look so cute.
Your blanket is gorgeous! How did you conect the squares? You do better than I do, with knitting from stash. I've orderes yarn 3!!! times lately, just because I wanted it! Then again, I didn't comit to knitting from stash, it's just something I want to do. Looking forward seeing the whole finished blanket (you know I'm a blanket freak! ) ;o)

I love the way you combine odd bits of yarn and create wonderful blankets.

I can see why the baby sweater is tempting you. It's adorable.
