Over the last couple of weeks I've knitted up a number of little projects. Taking a cue from Stash and Burn, one of my favorite knitting podcasts, I worked on one skein items knit from oddball yarns in my stash. They have a contest running here, where you upload pics of finished objects. There are quite a number of images there, including these from me:
It's a generic roll brim hat (50 stitches, knit for about 7 inches, and a swirl decrease). I don't love the decreases because the k2togs happened to be at thicker points in the yarn, so I may redo that part. But I do love the colors! The yarn is Trendsetter Yosemite.
This is a generic ribbed hat I made for Julian. Please forgive the red eye.
The hat was knit from leftover Debbie Bliss Cashemerino over 84 stitches on no. 6 needles.
This is my third Bear for the Mother Bear Project, which sends bears to African children. This one used Knit Picks Swish Superwash for the green and yellow and Lion Brand WoolEase for the white. I thought the skirt was a fun addition. The others I made are here.
Lastly, I made Jamie some socks with a fabulous rainbow yarn made by Regia Ringel.
I cast on 44 stitches and used Charlene Schurch's garter rib pattern from Sensational Knitted Socks.
I also finished Poppy and am blocking it now.
