Fallen Leaf Scarflette

Yay!!! I finished this...

I wish I could say it was fun...Let's just was a bit challenging..LOTS of yo's...and the mohair was a bit tricky using nickel plated needles and sticky when you have to rip out a few stitches... but I'm happy with the end result.. It will make a nice gift.

Used Sz 6 needles.. and one skein Madil Yarns Kid Seta that was gifted to me by Judy! a doll.. in a pale pale pink, of which I had less than one yard left!

2 days left

So.. This whole Lent thing... 

When hubby and I were married, he asked that our future children be brought up Catholic. I didn't have a problem with it.. I had MANY a friend who were and they turned out OK (mostly).. ;).. and afterall I was marrying a Catholic... So, this year, I tried to set a positive example and sacrificed (gave up) something for lent... What that was? BUYING YARN!.. I decided for the next 40+ days.. that I shall ONLY knit from what was in the stash.. ONLY!!! 
Here's one stash buster

Size small
Alpaca with a Twist Socrates - less than one SKEIN!!!
