Stashalong 2008 progress

Posted in KAL, Knitting, March, Stash tagged , at 5:43 am by myknittedempire

So my Goal for this month was to use 1 Kilometer of yarn.

This goal has worked out really well, I wanted to knit a weekend cardi and I finally found a pattern that: was not knitted in the round, had a hood, had pockets and could have a zip put in it.

I have knitted it using all my part balls of stash yarn and scraps. I really like how it is coming out, it may not appeal to other people but I am knitting it to please only myself, so that’s just fine.

The wonderful thing is that because I am using more than one yarn at a time my ‘yardage’  so far is about 800 meters and I haven’t done the sleeves yet!

YAY i have reached my March stash-along goal.
