I've been working to finish projects using stash. This sweater, Rambling Rows by Cottage Creations is one of my favorites. I love mitered squares and combining color combinations. This project incorporates four colors of Cascade 220 Superwash. I'm really happy with the way it turned out.
This baby sweater in Berocco Love It purchased two years ago at Yarnworks in Gainesville, FL, is another of my favorite patterns, # 982 Babies Neck Down Cardigan by Diane Soucy. I enjoy making top down sweaters; there's very little sewing and I think they are more comfortable to wear when they don't have seams attaching the arms to the body. This is lovely yarn, mostly cotton with some stretch.
Here's another Rambling Rows sweater, my fifth. It's knit in Berocco Geode, Cascade 220 and Germantown Worsted. I think it's perfect for my granddaughter, Linny, who loves purple. I'm a tight knitter so I used the stitch counts for the 7 to 9 size which came out to the measurements of a slightly large 4 to 6 size. It should be perfect for her to wear at the end of the summer. Now I have to come up with complementary sweaters for her brothers. Fortunately my stash continues to overflow and I just need to rummage around a bit to find something suitable.
I'm working on another baby sweater project right now but it's not something that will lend itself to a work in progress photo. Once it's done, I'll post it.
