Ready To Mail

This little vest (about a size 8) was a great stash-buster. I used up 5 balls of yarn (about 800 yards total), 4 of them chunky/bulky weight, the 5th, sock yarn.

I used the pattern found here and made the vest version (scroll to the bottom).

It was fast, easy, and warm.

Mailing off to Afghans For Afghans for the current campaign.

This is sweater #14 that I have knit this year, all from yarn I had stashed. I made my goal (10 in 2010) and might actually try for 11 next year!

Some Finished Stuff

Here's a picture of the next three woven dishtowels. I hesitated to post this so soon, as they were just put in the mail to the intended victim recipient earlier this week.

But what the heck. If I wait, I'll forget and my loyal reader will never get to see them.

Same as before: long warp, then differeing patterns for the weft.

Cotton chennille.

And here's a stash-busting mitered square blanket that I will be putting in the mail to Afghans For Afghans as soon as I finish the sweater that's on the needles. Fall campaign for youth is in full swing. Blankets, sweaters, socks and mittens are the most requested items.

This one is odds and ends of wool and other animal fibers. I believe there's a tiny bit of soy silk in a couple of the squares.

Worsted weight, size 8 needles.

Sadly (or gladly) I have at least as much odd bits of wool left as I used.
