In my post about my stash I mentioned I was working on a project that would use up some of my stash. Well this is that project. I knitted it as a present for Corey's sister who is due to have a baby in September.
Pattern: Sunny Baby Blanket by Lucy Sinkler
Yarn: Holiday 8 ply in Navy Blue
Needles: 5mm circulars (for the length)
Date Started: 2nd July 2011
Date Ended: 18th July 2011
This project was super easy to knit. I knit a bit each night while watching tv and it took just over 2 weeks. It would be a great project for a beginner because it is just knit and purl stitches but the alternating keeps it interesting.
I used up 3 x 100g balls of this yarn from my stash. I still have 4 more balls of this yarn but I do have one more project that I want to make with this yarn. Although it will probably not even use a ball. I have also started one more knitting project last night which should be a super fast knit and will also use up a couple of balls of yarn. I want to try and knit at least a quarter of my stash before I buy any new yarn. But who knows if that will happen. Fingers crossed!!!
