Oddballs, Begone!

March 29th, 2007 | 2 Comments

I’m probably luckier than most knitters, in that a significant chunk of my oddball stash comes in the form of three different yarns: 700 yards of Fortissima Socka, 600 yards of Elann Peruvian Highland Wool, and 950 yards of Cascade 220, leftover from many socks, the Ombre Blanket, and assorted felted items.

That said, the small and weird amounts left still doesn’t make for easy re-combining of yarn to make a new project. Unless it’s a baby project. But who wants a baby item that’s 100% non-superwash wool?

Body of the Harvard Square Cardigan

In the course of dealing with my One Project Paralysis following the completion of the Endpaper Mitts, I came to the conclusion that I wasn’t in the mood to knit anything challenging. No lace, no cables, no epic projects. I was flailing around for a project to knit next when a bunch of babies came to the rescue. Enter the Harvard Square Cardigan.
