Scrappy blanket

Blanket in progress! I’ve shown you something similar before, with this scrap yarn blanket. That one is resting for now.

I work simple garter stitch strips, seaming them together when finished. Combining colors are as much fun as the knitting itself! Here I’ve collected all scraps and odd skeins in red, pink, brown and orange/ dark yellow.

I’m combining threads to get a bulky weight, and working on 8 mm needles. Such an awesome way to use up some stash yarn! I’m using several “boring” skeins here that looks much more fun combined in a color palette like this. 😊

The palette is very similar to what I used for my Marled Magic mystery shawl.

Marled Mania Cardigan

Raid i garnskåpet efter blandade rosa och lila för att göra Stephen Wests Marled Mania cardigan. Behöver använda upp lite av mina sock- och sjalgarner – har många ensamma härvor som oftast inte räcker till projekt jag vill göra.

Stash dive for various pinks and purples to make Stephen West’s Marled Mania cardigan. Need to use up.some of my sock and shawl skeins – have too many single skeins, which is often not enough for projects I want to make.

FO: Twiggy

Jag stickade klart min 4e (!) Twiggy, i god tid för vintern. Den första tänkt till pojken blev alldeles för stor – den sparar jag till nästa år.

Blandade restgarner i grönt, tillsammans med Drops Air i både vitt och grått. Blev inte så dumt, tycker jag!

I finished my 4th (!) Twiggy, in good time for winter. The first one intended for my boy turned out way too big – I’m saving that for next year.

Various green scraps from stash, held together with Drops Air, both white and gray. Not too shabby, I think!
