tangled sleeve, arctic diamond and stash
Thanks for the encouragement to knit on with the Tangled Yoke. It is such a great pattern and design. I finished most of the five balls, leaving some to transition to the next batch of yarn on order of a different dye lot - 6 more is what I settled on. Hopefully, the colors won’t be too dissimilar.
Progress has been made on the Arctic Diamond as well. I ripped quite a few rows back to the armhole shaping and then went bonkers staying up all night knitting like a person possessed. Here you see my little helper holding up three repeats of the pattern. I think six repeats will be just right to finish and use up what yarn I have on hand.
Speaking of yarn. Something else that kept me busy this weekend. Organizing the old stash. Yikes! What isn’t shown here are the coned yarns, mostly denim and crochet cotton.
Perusing Ravelry the other night I stumbled upon the Babette Blanket. Some of these projects are amazing. And, brilliant for stash busting. It should make a miniscule dent in mine.
