WIP Stash Buster Sweater
OK, I've got a start on this sweater. I'm just working with whatever colors I have on hand. It's promising to be a very ugly sweater

Have to agree with Cyndi-- Not ugly so far. Actually, very nice combination of colors so far! Whatever it is, it will be unique --- just like you!

It is looking good. However it turns out, you know that it will be unique. Great idea to use up all the stash yarns.

As long as you don't throw any hot pink in there it should be great!

Ugly?! No way, those colors look gorgeous together! Good job on the turtleneck, too!

Looks good! Very autumnal!

I'm a huge fan of stashbuster projects. With my recycled yarns ...and varying quantities... it's always a challenge to calc how much of 'whatever' I have to work a certain area. If I want X rows of a certain color/yarn in diff places (sleeves and the body) don't want to end up short in one of those.
