I needed something to wear. I'm not talking clothes, since if you talk to my DH, I have plenty...I needed a knitted item to wear.
My prior hand knits had all been worn previously. I really wanted to wear something new...however, time to Stitches was ticking!!
Off to the stash...nothing was really striking my fancy. However, I found a cake of beautiful Periwinkle Sea Silk from Handmaiden on my craft table. I thought it would be perfect!!
The problem....this cake was attached to my Ishbel. Remember it's last state of being:
This yarn was meant to be turned into my new project for Stitches.
Off to Ravelry. The pattern I had in mind was Icing by Samantha Roshak.
I had a few days to pull this pattern off...it was going to be so close. I decided to take the day off before our trip to Stitches to make sure I would have plenty of time to finish and block it.
As you can see I finished it!
Off to Stitches I go.
Stay tuned for stash enhancements tomorrow!
