I'm making an effort to knit down my yarn stash.

This is Wendy Peter Pan DK. Needle size 4, achieving 6sts=1".
The pattern is my variation of a set a friend loaned me so I could analyze the pattern.

I hate knitting booties, but they are on a needle now!

Thanks a lot.

I'm not sure yet if it will be a gift, or for sale at the Christmas Craft Walk.

This is a beautiful set and your work is professional quality.

Show the booties too when you get them finished.

I too have been thinking about knitting up what I have before buying other yarns, but it's hard not to buy yarn when you find it at a great sale or clearance price.

Thanks for the "professional' compliment. I spend at lot of time on finishing work.
The booties are still on the needle. :wall::hair:
Have I ever mentioned I hate knitting booties???!!!

I have "bargain" yarns in my stash that are more than 30 years old. This baby yarn was on sale, but not a bargain, and bought less than 5 years ago.
The yarn for the castle sweater was bought especially for that gift.

I've developed great resistance to buying bargain anything!

Wendy Peter Pan is 55% nylon/45% acrylic, made in England.
It's very soft and a pleasure to knit up.

Beautiful set! I saw the other pictures of the two hats too. All are nice. I love the pattern that makes the zig-zag on the yoke of the sweater and makes the star on the bonnet back. It is so cool. Nice work and color. :muah:
