The second sweater for "The Grand Seduction" is completed and delivered. If I do say so myself the pattern looked great in Briggs & Little washed white. Would have liked to have had more pictures but couldn't find the right hanger or place to get some good shots before the sweater was picked up. Oh well! Now on to other projects, more stash busting and a little project for my "son"-in-law.

Second Sweater Complete.

The second sweater is complete.

 I need someone to try it on so I can take a good picture or a very large hanger. Stay tuned for more pictures.

Stash Busting Continues

It has been a great week of stash busting. My stash has gotten oven a dozen balls of yarn smaller, if I continue maybe in two years or so I will be able to notice a considerable difference in the amount of yarn I have, that is if I don't buy any more!
I have completed five pairs of fingerless mitts, two LA Grand Scarves and one hat. I have the yarn selected for La Grand Scarf number three.
Here is a picture of the second La Grand Scarf with matching hat.

La Grand Scarf

First it was the Triffy Collection following Young Triffies Been Made Away With, now they are filming The Grand Seduction and my thinking cap went on! After knitting the sweater that actor Brendan Gleeson is weating I thought what can I now knit?? As my previous blog started I had these huge (grand) needles and a need to "stash" bust, so La Grand Scarf was created.

La Grand Scarf

The texture is surprisingly very soft.

It's not ghost busting but "stash" busting!

In April when I attended the Creative Festival I purchased a huge set of knitting needles. You need to use five strands of various yarns to give an unusual texture. I went searching my stash yesterday and started a scarf, a fun project.

From my stash!

The needles!

Work in progress!Stay tunes for the finished project............................
