Stashbusting

Nachaele had this great idea to go on a yarn diet over the winter months and I'm on the bandwagon -- I need to do some serious stashbusting. She has started a Top 10 Stash Projects KAL and I'm using this as a good excuse to finish up some UFOs, as well as start some new projects with existing stash.

Here's my top 10, in no particular order:
1. Tangled Yoke (WIP)
2. Harley Socks (WIP)
3. Wicked
4. Slimline Jacket
5. Harley Slippers
6. Rowan Roadster (WIP)
7. Halloween Mystery Shawl (WIP)
8. At least one pair of socks
9. An aran cardi of some sort with this
10. And something with this, although I'm not quite sure what yet...

Speaking of the Tangled Yoke, I finished the cabling and I'm soo very close to being done. I couldn't be happier so far with how it's turning out. I can't wait to finish.

And I did get to start the Ruffles scarf last week (although very little progress was made).

Ooh but when I got back, I had a new knitty book waiting for me -- Knitting Lingerie Style. Other than the obvious (which I'm not convinced I'd ever make) there are some gorgeous tops and some fun socks in this great book. But they'll have to wait until the stashbusting is over -- I don't think I've got the perfect yarn to work on some of these lovelies.

Your tangled yoke is looking really good. Can't wait to see it finished.

It looks like you made some really good progress on the ruffled scarf even if you don't think so. It was vacation knitting and nobody ever manages to get as much as they hope done on vacation!

Cheers,
Bea

Your tangled yoke looks great! I am glad you are happy with it. Did you have any issues? I am intrested in knitting it, but I have heard different things about it.
