The stash busting yarn

I cant say I enjoyed this project, but mostly because of the time constraint.  I am already looking forward to making a speckled/hue version of the cardigan later… (when I have time). Boy did it make a dent in my ever growing stash.  I have so many little balls of luxury yarn that I just cannot bring myself to through away and this project used them all.  The design consist of a slip stitch pattern, so your just working one color at a time, of two rows with three different color bases.

The main base:  2,5 skeins of lovely Einrúm, a lopi/silk blend as my base that I bought to make a sweater that I later scrapped.

second base: all sorts of fingering and sport white and off white yarn used in various baby projects.

all sorts row – grays, yellows and multicolored yarn mostly Madeline Tosh.

Tomorrow I have a photo shoot date with my lovely friend Vaka, cannot wait to show you.
