Knitting Bingo

Over on the Stash and Burn group we are playing Use it or Lose it Bingo. The Use it or Lose it is just referencing using the stash. If we destash something and get the yarn out of the house that would be a free wild card.

Before posting March I should show February's projects.

The pattern is Snowhemian.  The yarn is sock yarn scraps held double with my angora handspun from 1999-ish. Hat was knit for Stash and Burn 15 hats in 2015 challenge.The pattern was gifted to me ages ago.

Pattern is Loganberry Cowl that I bought back in the first Gift a Long pattern sale. A single skein of malabrigo Twist and I learned a new way to wrap and turn for short rows with this project. It was knitted for the Doubleknits Wardrobe Architect. 

This is when I started stamping what each project ticked off instead of only the new squares. The finished photo is never going to happen but the ends are woven in and everything. Pattern is Weave and the yarn is Maggie's handspun from the Dresden Files swap box.

Another hat for 15 in 15 also from handspun. I have dubbed 2015 is the year of handspun. Pattern is Citric. I just love Alex Tinsley's hat patterns.

BINGO! a WIP left over from the Ravellenic 2012. Pattern is Flora and the white yarn is Classic Elite Yarns Lush and the green Dream in Color Everlasting DK.

A bit a trend here isn't it? Each and every one of these projects is knit for at least two Knit A Longs. I really enjoy a good KAL and don't mind double dipping. The KAL is a place to talk about themed knitting a 2am and there are all the prizes. Mmmmmm prize yarn. Delicious.
