Weigh-in completed

OK, so I didn't quite get my stash under the 10 kilo barrier, but it's now down to 10.135 kilos.  I'm happy enough with that.  I have been able to move a couple of bags of yarn out of my wardrobe and into the yarn cupboard, which is quite an achievement.  Stashers find all sorts of hidey-holes for their yarn.  I have 2 more bags in the wardrobe and yet more in the shed (well wrapped in polythene).  There *may* also be some in my fabric box, but I'm not admitting to that just yet.  We had a bit of a discussion this week on what constitutes stash, and my view is that it's any yarn bought without an immediate purpose in mind.  For charity knitters like me that includes charity shop and eBay purchases of course.

I also made a little knitted dress last month using some Stylecraft Merrygoround DK that I bought on eBay a while back (true stash in my book).  I used another of Marianna's patterns, but added some sleeves so that it could be worn on chillier days. My unskilled photography makes it look like the sleeves are different widths, but in reality they are the same.



So now it's back to the aran cardigan I showed in my previous post.
