FO's: Stashbuster Mr Greenjeans and Tapestry Crochet wall hangin
Here are a few recently finished projects:

I wanted a Spring cardie and decided on Mr Greenjeans from Knitty. Fortunately I had plenty of yarn in my stash for it just all in different colors so I just knit with a color until it ran out and then started a new one. It was fun! The yarn is Novita 7 Veljestä.



I have been interested in Tapestry Crochet for some time and have only now got around to trying a flat piece. I used a dk weight 100% mercereized cotton and size 3.5mm crochet hook. The deer chart is from Enchanted Knitting.

Wow! Those are both just amazing! Love the fun you had with Mr. Green Jeans, and the tapestry truly is beautiful.

Great job!

What a great idea for the Mr. Greenjeans! Pretty spring colors, and a great way to use up stash yarn. The wall hanging is amazing!

What a fantastic job on both! I love what you did with Mr. Greenjeans (I have that sweater in my queue too!) The tapestry is quite beautiful!
