Stash-Buster: Scarf in Progress



Today I’m joining Linda from Linda’s Crafty Corner for Summer 2013 Stash-buster Challenge Link Party!

I have had this beautiful wool olive green yarn for a couple of years now. My sister-in-law bought it for me. I attempted a few projects with this yarn, but somehow none of them were ever finished.



At some point I wanted to make a crocodile stitch shawl. But this stitch requires lot of yarn, so I abandoned that project because I probably wouldn’t have enough yarn to finish it. Besides, my shawl was coming out heavy and bulky.

I also started an open-stitch project, which would require less yarn, but I didn’t finish it either. I think it was supposed to be a wrap, I’m not sure now.

I even tried to knit something with this yarn, but again that project never materialized.  I can’t even remember what it was supposed to be.



I think I finally found a perfect project for this yarn. I’m making a lacy scarf. The stitch is open and airy, and the scarf is coming out soft and pleasant to touch. I think I might turn it into an infinity scarf; I’ll decide later.


P.S. I’m going to take a short break from blogging and crocheting, but I have a few posts ready. They will be posted automatically. I’ll be back in a couple of weeks.
