Surmount the Stash - October roundup (Scary picture edition)
(Scary how crappy the pictures are.... I love fall but the shorter days do not lend themselves to quality photography)
This month was not great in number of projects (surprising because I did have a whole week off) but the yardage count is decent.
Lets start with smallest to largest.
First up Noah's Nessie.
Canada Post tracking says my cousin received it today, so I'm hoping to gets some pics soon. Nessie used about 80 yards of random leftovers. Not a huge stash bust, but a cute one!
Next was the "heart shawlette"
I meant to get decent pictures of this on the weekend. But I was so scattered before I went up to Mom's I completely forgot to bring it, so you're still stuck with the crappy blocking picture. This shawlette used 400 yards of Barn Cat transitions. I was going to design a few other pattern and put it up as an ebook - but I'm thinking I might just throw it out there as a free pattern.
And last but not least - Eileen
True she doesn't have her zipper yet, but I'm still counting her as done - because she adds another 1450 yards to my tally. She also completes another goal this year - to knit four sweaters! True - two of them didn't have sleeves - but they are sweater-like so they count!
All tolled October used up about 1,930 yards of yarn - can complain about that!
Total for the year so far - 12,904 yards!
And Happy Hallowe'en!
