Stashbuster baby 'crayon' cardi....
Jan's fabulous baby sweaters for Stitches from the Heart inspired me to put the rest of my stash to good use.

Variation on this pattern:
http://www.knittingonthenet.com/patt...estripebam.htm

Was really fun making something so small (took only a couple days for the actual sweater...a bit of time to weave all the ends) and being I don't ever have occasion to work top down, enjoyed the technique for this purpose given my very limited amt of yarn (as I attempted to allocate it for balanced striping).

Partially completed with stash:

Finished sweater:

Not nearly as exquisite as some of the other fab creations posted here but a nice change of pace project.

Ooh, I love it! I especially like how you bring a bright yarn right up to the face - it'll look great on the baby! Wonderful job :D

Thanks, redheadrachel! This will get donated so no idea who'll be wearing it but thought the bright mix of colors would make for a fun look.

That's so cute! I'm sure that any baby wearing that will look adorable.

That is so cute! I'm glad I inspired you! What better way to use up little bits of yarn in your stash.

I'm almost done with two more...

Thanks, ArtLady! I rewound the rest of my stash and have been eyeing it for another possible tiny sweater. I was working on a cardi for myself that didn't meet my expectations so that's gonna be frogged. A little project would make for a nice diversion while I ponder my strategy on the one for moi.
