In my ongoing quest to use up stash I decided I'd make a little sweater for my grandson using some leftover yarns I had. This is the result...
The pattern is 'Snow Bunnies' from a Beehive booklet called 'Knit Menagerie' - knit in the round and made a tad longer than it called for because our grandson is tall. If I had to do it again, I would make the stripes much wider (and less of them) and I wouldn't carry them quite so high up the body.
HOWEVER - after all that, I don't seem to have made so much
as a DENT in my stash!!
- THIS is a really nice fabric basket that would use up some stash and would make nice gifts too (particularly if it was filled with goodies)
- AND (!!) if you go to the link HERE there are tons of links to all sorts of patterns (oh, maybe I should have warned you to pour yourself a cuppa before you go.....)
- For those of you who are getting rather creaky in the knees and don't want to have to crawl about on the floor trying to block a piece of knitting (not that ANY of us are in that state!!)....have a look at THIS video for an alternate method.
- THIS would be a cute little project to do for Easter - perhaps even with the kids or grandkids?
Anonymous quote again..."Hate has 4 letters, so does Love. Enemies has 7 letters, so does Friends. Lying has 5 letters, so does Truth. Negative has 8, so does Positive. Under has 5, so does Above. Cry has 3 letters, so does Joy. Anger has 5 letters, so does Happy. Right has 5 letters, so does Wrong. Hurt has 4 letters, so does Heal. It means life is like a doubled edged sword....so transform every negative side into an aura of positivity....we should choose the better side of life"
