I've acquired more stash. I had some skeins of Lion Brand Homespun on my destash page on Rav. I had a hit on my last skein, she wanted to do a trade. She offered me Lion Brand Incredible in exchange. I've never used a ribbon yarn so I thought what the heck. I can always use it like ribbon and I liked the colors. So here is the Incredible:
The Rios Coffee Kerrier is the only project I've competed so far. I used some of my left over Malabrigo Rios. It turned out great, its Malabrigo, how could it not! Its been done for a few days but I've been too busy to submit it. Since its left over yarn I'll be putting it into the "We are made of stardust" challenge. I used the pattern Roasty Toasty Coffee Kerrier. Its a quick knit that takes very little yarn.
Peridot mitt almost done and I've started the second since I took pictures. The bottom cuff and the top band are berry stitch. The berry stitch is fidly, I mean uber fidly even after it gets going. Its also very open so these wont be super warm. That works out okay though since I'm using Elsebeth Lavold Cool Wool which is a cotton/wool blend. They will work great for in-between seasons and indoors when typing or what not. The first one is a bit snug. It fits okay on my left hand, so I'm knitting the second one looser in the hopes it will fit my right hand. They may grow during blocking because of the cotton content too. They aren't using much yarn either, I don't think they'll take the whole skein. I can make a second pair a little bigger if I need to. This pair will be going in the "Color Therapy" challenge. I'm also doing these as my April project for the Fingerless Glove Fanatics group.
I have some ideas for the other projects. I think I can fit the extra credit project from the Knit Crochet Blog Week into the April Dishcloth KAL and into Nerd Wars. That would be the ultimate trifecta of awesomeness! Until later, Happy Crafting!
