Stash time

I’ve taken advantage of some great Spring prices to plan ahead and stash materials for a few knitting and sewing projects…

I have in mind an adult Wiksten Tova tunic for the larger print and a surprise baby project for the little hearts.

This is the first time I’ve tried this Alpaca Cloud and I have in mind to knit two strands at once in gradually changing colours. I haven’t decided yet on a simple blanket/shawl or perhaps a sweater.

I’m also very excited about this lovely pattern book, Home and Away by Hannah Fettig (AKA Knitbot). I’m tempted to try the Lesley sweater, perhaps with this Rowan Lima:

Meanwhile I bought this Rooster Almerino Aran yarn from my LYS, and am already well underway with a cardigan.

Finally, later in the summer I hope to use this gorgeous Fyberspates Scrumptious Lace for a fine Laar cardigan – pattern by Gudrun Johnston.

I’m excited about gradually replacing items in my wardrobe as the wear out with my own handmade items. What’s new in your stash for Spring?
