One more day until the opening of the winter games. Which means I can start my projects. I’ve decided to do at least one baby sweater – the Baby Sophisticate sweater and then a stuffed animal – The Daphne and Delilah, Momma and baby monsters. Fortunately I don’t have to buy any yarn because I can use what is in my stash for all of this. I actually planned it that way, believe it or not.
And the recycled Abercrombie sweater yarn is almost dry. It’s still hanging up in the shower.
I think I’ll be using this for the Debbie Bliss Kellybigs sweater jacket. I believe I have enough yarn. If not, I suppose I work some magic and use some other yarn for a funky trim or something. But I’ll worry about that after the Olympics.
Here’s a few other shots of another sweater that will be eventually recycled for another purpose.
This sweater is massive. It’s got a real different pattern to it than what i would have expected for a irish knit sweater. It’s kinda sad to rip it out, but it’s way too big for me, and there’s a hole in the shoulder. So it makes it a perfect candidate for a new life.
and here’s a shot of the tag.
OK, and now it’s back to finishing up the test run of the Baby Sophisticate sweater. Which is super easy. I may have made it too easy for myself. But we’ll see.
