Whoa calendar, slow down already!
Every March Joanne Hawker puts out a #MarchMeetTheMaker challenge. The inspiration, camaraderie and community spirit with so many creatives sharing is mind boggling. Check out all the eye candy and the makers behind the creative offerings.
In the spirt of March Making, I’m working on a few creative challenges myself. A while ago, I bought this wonderful, bright skein of hand dyed yarn.
It was the perfect choice to make these fingerless mitts for my daughter and she loves them to this day. Pattern is Spate by Jane Richmond and I highly recommend it.
I wanted to use up every last bit of this gorgeous yarn and so I began making a ribbed cowl. Nothing fancy just 2×2 rib round and round.
And then, I ran out of yarn.
I work at a yarn shop once a week, so my first instinct was to buy another skein and finish my project. But I decided to break my yarn habit and “shop” my stash bins instead. Yes, that doesn’t happen too often, hah!
Score… the perfect complementary leftovers from another project. In an effort to stashbust and buy less, I present this stacked cowl.
This is turning out to be a great project and perfectly portable. I love how these colors play so well together and I am learning that I can embrace neutrals just as much as I tend to reach for the bright, bold, vibrant colorways 🙂
