I just wanted to share the lasted Test Knit called Confection. It is a new free pattern from She-Knits. I have blog listed on my blog roll under blogs I read. It will be available on Ravelry as a free pattern soon, so be watching for it. It is a Baby Shrug. This is a size 3 month. I used some yarn from my stash called Bazic Wool. It is a Superwash wool by Classic Elite Yarns. It was a great knit and fun to do. The shrug still needs to be blocked. Which I will get to and post about later. I dunno if it is a good idea or not, but I think I am going to Kool-Aid dye it. I will post about it tomorrow or the next day. It will be my first try at this process.

This is the Kids Club Skirt from the book Greetings From the Knit Cafe. I love this book. I also loved knitting this skirt! It was fun. It was also a great stash buster. You can pretty much just use what you have. Some of the striping though is Noro Kureyon. There is a litte Bazic superwash is Yellow. I also added some On-Line Punta and Lion brand orange eyelash just for funsie’s. Looks like I more different yarns than I actually did. Thank you Noro 🙂 lol…. My daughter has patiently waited for me to finish it. I will have to add a picture of her wearing it when she finally gets to try it on for me. Oh she’ll be so excited to see it done tomorrow when she gets home! I can’t wait to make a 2nd one! Enjoy!
This is a Chris Bylsma pattern. By the way she is one of my favorite designers. I have alot of her patterns. The name of this finished pattern is Ladder Shawl. I loved working on this project. It used tons of stash yarn. I enjoyed the randomness of which yarns to use. I took Stashology 101 at my LYS. Chris Bylsma came herself and taught the class. That is when I first saw the shawl. She brought with her completed items from a lot the patterns she wrote. I knew I had to make it.I adjusted mine to be longer than the pattern called for. It is easily 9 feet long. I did this to use more yarn and I wanted to be able to wrap it around a couple times. Some of the stash yarn used was Berroco Glace, Noro Kureyon, Manos Del Uruguay, Trendsetter eyelash, Venezia and many more others. The colors were just all earthy blah colors besides the red and pinks. Most yarns that were purchased in my stash were just orphans that were significanlty reduced in price. All nice yarns though. I will have to check my pattern. Every time I introduced a new yarn I wrote it on my pattern. When I find the list I will update this post here on my blog. The hardest part for me was when doing the ladders I had some mohair in here and it was a b. to separate from the Manos and Kureyon at times. The other issue was it was very time consuming weaving all the ends in every where. I’m glad I made this. I have to say it is very warm and cozy despite it being such an open pattern. I will also be adding this to my Ravelry notebook and posting to the Stash and Burn 2008 group! Enjoy!
Ok, As some of you can see. I have been adding stash to Ravelry everyday. Little by little. It is quite a process to get a skein of yarn listed. So, I have quite a bit of space left this month on Flickr. I need to be getting busy before February 1st to get as much yarn as can pictured and go in 1 by 1 adding the yarn. I do like seeing it there on Ravelry! At least I know what I have. If your on Ravelry and haven’t done the stash thing yet. It is a nice feature they have. It’s also free! I love all the fiberlicousness that goes on there!
I have decided to start listing my stash on Ravelry. It is a wonderful feature they offer. I think It may turn in to a process. There is quite a bit. I been hoarding yarn like they’re going to stop making it! I think it will have to be a slow and gradual process. Flickr has a monthly limit you can upload! I will be posting some new pictures in the morning! Be scared! I am!
