using up the stash
I haven't posted anything on this spot for a while as I have been too busy knitting. I have now used up my stash of double knitting wool and as a result I have:
1 patchwork cushion cover, 1 purse, 1 stole, 2 tea cosies, 3 scarves and lots of baby stuff too comprising; 2 pram blankets, 1 hooded jacket, 2 waistcoats, 4 cardigan and bonnet sets, 1 pair of bootees and 4 hats. Of these I am very pleased with cushion cover. It uses different stitches as well as colours and the buttons are from my grandmother's button tin which I inherited many years ago - we've always been into recycling in our family.
I also found some baby aran wool from which I knitted 2 hat,scarf and mittens sets, 1 hat and another pair of mittens.
I'm now working through my 4 ply stash and as a change I've been crocheting a few items. You'll see those later.
