Stripes! (Liv cardigan)

A planned project! My eyes caught on three yarns in my stash that I felt worked really well together. It’s all about stash busting, and it feels awesome!

Yarns: Malabrigo Rios in Water Green, Allegria Grande in Huarache, and Drops Air color 27. None of them are enough on their own, but together they will be enough for a striped cardigan! Right now thinking a Liv cardigan. I’ll cast on later when I’ve finished some other projects.

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.
