UFO Sighting… Knitting Style

Last week instead of starting a brand new project after finishing my Birds of a Feather shawl I decided to pull out a UFO (unfinished object) that I haven’t touched since March.

I don’t know why I put this sweater away… it was my project I would bring to the office but since I started working from home this spring I’ve been distracted with other things. Anyways, I’m working on the body and it’s slow going… just mindless stockinette. I need to get it to 15in before I start the ribbing for the hem and I’m at 12.5 in right now.

Also, this is my first color work project and I’m feeling anxious about it. I tried to consciously knit looser but I feel like the puckering I see may not block out. I don’t know… maybe it will? I have no idea. Either way I’m still going to wear this sweater and enjoy it.

Happy Scrappy

Miscellaneous scraps and leftovers

This is my basket of mini skeins and scraps left over from previous projects, just about all of it is fingering weight yarn. My basket is getting full so I am thinking its about time to start figuring out how I want to use these up.

There are so many patterns on Ravelry for using up scraps that its hard to decide what I want to make with these… Do any of you have a pattern that you have enjoyed that uses up these odds and ends? Share with me!
