A success as several items have been satisfactory completed, but only moderate as several items have been added -- not all stash-related.
Pictured are some of the finished objects (FOs):
- Spring Forward socks - These were about 75% done at the start of this list. They were so much fun to knit, an easy to memorize pattern resulting in a simple lace with undulating curve. I used the Fish Lips Kiss Heel in these. I am not a complete convert, but following Patti's directions does yield an excellent and comfortable fit. (Ravelry Link)
- The Almost Lost Washcloth - A quick knit that took only two nights, one at the kids' 8th grade orchestra concert. My grandmother used to always knit up dish clothes, so I have a sentimental attachment and enjoy using them, at least as much as it is possible to enjoy the dishes. This one has a pleasing shape, and the pattern is also easily memorized. (Ravelry Link)
- Dog Under My Desk (DUMD) Zip and Go -- AKA my dog walking bag! Erin's bag patterns are fantastically detailed and photographed. As Eastern Pennsylvania is finally leaving jacket season, I needed something to hold my ginormous phone, poop bags (empty), and house key as many outfits lack pockets. I was able to cut this out of stash fabric one night and sew it up the next. Win! (Pattern Link)
- Ecclefechan Mitts by Kate Davies --Kate's designs are simply enchanting. Each new one delights and tempts me to cast on something new. The color work in these kept me motivated, but I struggled keeping the garter stitch from gaping so they languished on the side for awhile. In the end, every third stitch was decreased to tighten up the fit. (Ravelry Link)
- Appleton Dress -- This might be the first wear-able garment I have ever completed. No picture, but the pattern is easy to follow and the resulting dress earned a lot of compliments. (Pattern Link)
- Repair of strap on camera bag (not pictured)
