I've finished two small and fast projects this week. I do so love instant gratification and stash busting.
The first up is a garter stitch cowl. I bought this yarn at my LYS in the clearance bin over a year ago. Oh how I love a reduced price on anything, and even though it was only one skein, I couldn't help myself. It is Colinette Point 5, Sweet Dreams.
I wanted something that would show up how lovely the wool is, and since it is super chunky this cowl was done in a matter of hours. Then I popped some buttons on and away I went. I didn't even need to make button holes, because of the toggles I used.
It was my intention to have the girls take a picture of me wearing it, but as the week really has gotten away from me, it didn't happen and I currently have bed head. Hopefully I'll get there soon and post it later on. It looks better on my than Polly!
The second project I made was a camera sock. I made this to protect my camera in my handbag while we are on holiday. I used some DK I had in my stash, and 4mm needles so it was really rather quick. After I knit it up and popped my camera in, it occurred to me that I had no way to take a picture of it!! I used the camera on my phone, which is old and doesn't do a great job. But hey ho, you get the idea.
And that's it for me right now. Take care, have a lovely weekend, and I'll see you all next week!
