Sunday Stash #34

The recent spate of re-organizing has also brought to my attention the rather numerous long term unfinished projects that are floating about.  Although I do not allow these projects to weigh heavily upon my mind, I am conscious of a need to finish what I have started.


Babette Blanket designed by Kathy Merrick
Published in Interweave Crochet - Spring 2006

I absolutely love this yarn!  It is Koigu Wool Designs KPM, 100% merino wool, purchased from Purlsoho,  quite some time ago.  Very well stashed but definitely in need of being used to make the Babette Blanket.  More Babette projects can be seen in the Babette Blanket Flickr Pool.


And of course, some obligatory fabric stash:


These are from Kaffe Fassett's very recent range of fabrics.  Called "Plink" in White and Magenta, these are pretty and have blended well with my stash.  I am always inspired by Kaffe's fabrics and all of his quilts/knitting, but do not always find that his fabrics work all that well with my stashed fabrics. I enjoy the challenge though and have a significant Kaffe stash.

  2. Sorry, but I'm having trouble coming to terms with the idea that you have unfinished projects! As it is, I'm convinced there are elves in your workshop...

  6. I have seen Babette on the internet and that blanket is just gorgeous! It would look great as a quilt too. I have Kaffe's Green Plink in my shop and love it. I will most likely be purchasing more in different colorways for the shop. It is a popular fabric. Not to mention, I love it too.

  7. Ohhh, now that's a stash I can drool over! I've been contemplating a babette but the thought of all those ends to darn in keeps putting me off.

  8. I love the look of the different sizes of squares together! So pretty! I hope you get round to making one :) I have plenty of knit projects that've been ignored for soooo long.

  10. Georgeous, I've not seen this afghan before will have to go check it out, I do crochet and knit, but am more of a knitter, actually I love and am so bad, I have probably 15 different projects going, I'm hoping to get a pair of mittens finished to match a hat that I did before Christmas for my daughter. Wish me luck, it's just one of many probject and there's not much time left, who needs sleep.

  12. Those two Kaffe fabrics are lovely and pretty and would blend into a lot of people's stash! May have to try and source some for my stash...

  13. Sigh and swoon! Babette! I had to resort to alternative Babette directions as my crochet skillz were not up to understanding what was directed. But a suitable alternative and my few squares are near the top of the heap at all times. Your yarns and fabrics are delicious!
