Swing Cowl number two

20140225_1

Since I finished off my sweater and probably won’t get around to blocking it till the weekend, I needed to find something else to work on (because you know I just don’t  have any half finished projects around here!) 🙂  I did work on a pair of socks for a while but they weren’t holding my interest, I pulled out my Art Deco but I was watching  a good movie so didn’t want to have to pay as much attention to reading the pattern while watching the  movie so set that aside.

I had been wanting to make another  Swing Cowl, ever since I finished my first one, using my left over Mini Mochi yarn that I used in Dreambird.  So went looking in the stash for something to go with it.  I found some Cephalopod Skinny Buggga in Dragonfly Tattoo colorway.  The flash lightened the colors in it but it’s gray and has just the palest green, blue, pinkish and purple colors in it – very subtle – but they pick up the colors in the Mini Mochi.

I started last night, worked on it during my bus rides today and this is how far I’ve gotten.   Moving right along.

And miracle of miracles — these yarns actually came out of the stash!!! and not out of a recently ordered Box of Fun! LOL

  1. Yeah for you, using some stash! I knew you could do it. So my BQF showed me you pic of the cowl last night and said how much she liked it, can I have you leftovers…. that would count as you getting rid of stash! Sounds like a plan, gets stash down.

  2. Your knitting looks lovely, when knitting with these coloured yarns it is always interesting to see how they knit up and what patterns you end up with. I have start knitting a vest with some yarn I have had for ages.

  3. I really like that pattern and your colors. I liked your first one too. It’s such a shame to have so many things in various stages of completion when a new project calls your name. I’ll check my stash and see what happens next. LOL

  4. I sew in general, quilt a little and crochet and do not knit, but thoroughly enjoy reading your blog about your projects and stashes etc. So much fun.
