So its March. Month three of the plan to empty out the stash. How is it going? Slow going but there is progress. Also I found out the name of some mystery yarn when I saw it at Gotham Fine Yarns. It’s actually Noro Cash Iroha. I also found another skein of some purple lace.
And an update of the Year’s Goal:
Skeins Likely to Use: 138
Total Yards: 25, 558
Cast on in 2010:6
Days without a yarn Purchase in 2o10: 72
It knit up in about 2 days which was great and reminded me that I may have been using lace for a little too long, for the Christmas cowl, beret, and dalek.
So I went back to the Marvel scarf and have mad some progress on DareDevil.
But along the same Marvel Plan I want to make a Captain America Circular shield shawl. So the first part I wanted to get down was the star. I figure once that was done I could work out the lace and increases simply enough.
With that in mind I knit this star pattern, Stars From the East which was quick and easy. I think I would need to eventually make the star via a provisional cast on then work my way back out. There will likely be a lot of frogging and hair pulling but that is how the JLA scarf came to be so It shall be interesting. I have a couple other designs planned, we’ll see how that goes.
