Continuous Stashbusting


It's been a while but over the past month I've been switching between at least five projects. My ravelry page helps me to stay focused but sometimes when I'm being completely manic I have to go the way the needles are taking me. I bought a huge skein of bernat handicrafter cotton in a yellow/purple blend. Why, I have no idea, but I wanted to make some kind of tank top out of it. After trying the star tank in the new VK a couple of times, I gave up (it was complicated with 6 double pointed needles) I decided on the Roundabout Leaf Tank from Knitting Nature (Norah Gaughan).

It's fun to knit. It's almost like knitting a scarf and spiraling it in on itself until it becomes a tube. Then you make the straps. I hope I have enough yarn! (famous last words!)

I'm also working on Chic Knits Ariann, an Iris Schrier multidirectional wrap, and a Schaefer Heather basketweave scarf/shawl. Oh and don't forget Farrell's birthday elephant which is already almost a month late. Whatever. It's keeping me relatively sane!!

Loveyas, Sue
