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.

Cropped cardi

Had a nice cardigan pattern ripped out from a magazine, but no super bulky yarn to match. On a whim I just pulled four skeins from stash that worked good together. Resulted in a pretty beautiful swatch, eh? A great way to use up stash. Yarns are Drops Air (color 8), Drops Brushed Alpaca Silk (color 8), Madeline Tosh Merino Sport (colorway Gossamer) and a hand dyed skein from Garnlycka. Waiting on a new circular needle in the mail, then casting on!
