So goes the month for small projects. I'm really enjoying casting one one day, casting off the next! Makes for lots of FO's! Some projects go so fast I don't even have time to blog about them!!! Like these mitts.
I used some stash Debbie Bliss Cashmerino. A charcoal type color for the bulk, then scraps of other colors for the stripes. It is one of those skeins I have gotten sick of looking at every time I open the stash bin. For some reason, I inherited bunches of small balls (most full skeins, some partial) of Debbie Bliss stuff (mostly merino aran and cashmerino) and really need to find a use for them. Every time I go to look in my stash, there they are, staring back at me. I know they will probably pill like crazy, and they are not machine washable, but I knit them up in about a day, so no big loss if they don't survive long.
For the next stashbusting little project this month, Thorpe is also a really quick knit that is super cute. Once again, I used stash yarn (Lang Polar, discontinued) that has been sitting way too long. I have been wanting an earflap hat, and this fits the bill!
Now, with NOTHING on the needles (I'm feeling slightly panicked) I'm off to browse my Ravelry queue to see what else I can cast on for next!
