I have continued knitting from my stash, and I finished one little charity sweater that I've yet to photograph. I'm working on a pair of socks for my DD now using some yarn that I bought a while back but never got to.
Let's see what else ... :thinking: ... oh yes, there was the start to another sweater called the Auspicious Coincidences Baby Sweater. I found the pattern in Compassionate Knitting
. The whole idea is that you take several balls of yarn from your stash -- in "harmonizing" colors -- put them in a bag or box, and then randomly pull them out & knit them according to one of 4 row patterns prescribed by the sweater pattern.
It was a fun project, but I didn't bother w/ the "harmonizing" color part, and I ended up with some absolutely horrible color combinations.
The pattern says, "Try not to rip it out just because you don't think the colors go together." But I kept imagining some poor little child being taunted by his or her peers because of the ugly colors.
So, I actually just threw it away. I had only knit about 3 to 4" on it. So, no great loss. I may give it another try & instead of just grabbing whatever yarn sticks to my hand from my stash box, I'll try actually color-coordinating a few colors & sticking with them.
All right ... off to head the children in the general direction of their bedrooms! Have a pleasant evening, everyone!
