So I was riffling through my ginormous stash of yarn today, looking for a beige ball or two to make a cover for my Mum-in-Law's couch, when I came across 3 or 4 nearly-finished projects. One is a blue sweater with cables that I had started for my firstborn, and he outgrew it before I finished. I have one sleeve to make and then make it up. I'll sell that one, as it doesn't really have any sentimental significance. I also saw a baby hat for my second born. Again, never worn, so I'll sell that too. It's a lovely light green color, with earflaps. I am going bind off a lovely forest green capelet I had started ages ago, and I just discovered. It's just reaches the elbows, which is the perfect length for those autumn evenings sipping coffee on the gallery, or for taking out to a ball game late at night, when the weather is a bit cooler. The final item, I have honestly no idea what I could use it as. It was originally a blanket, but it was one of my first attempts, way back in the day, and I simply did a bind off, and let it be. So I'll have to think on that one, because it's a toughy. I'll let you know... It might turn out to be a great placemat!
