knitting round up

It hasn't been stealth knitting, because I did most of the work for these projects in public.  But they have been sitting at home, stashed away, waiting to have the ends sewn in and to be blocked. 

I finished these in March, that's how far behind I am.

Pattern: Fetching, by Cheryl Niamath
Yarn: Vanna's Choice, Dusty Purple
Needles: US 6 DPN

Stash busting: 119 yds, 70 g, 0.7 skeins.

This one was sitting in the stash waiting to be blocked. While I enjoy the pattern and the way it turned out, I had to block the crap out of it.  It just wasn't deep enough to be the slouch I wanted it to be.  Sure, I could have just added an extra stripe in there.... if I'd had enough purple left.  But I didn't. So there.
