Mister Ben is done! It didn't come out exactly as I expected. This is a pattern by Two Old Bags. The pattern was well written and easy to follow

Lillie's Little Sweater is done!

I have been is a bit of a knitting slump lately, but finished this last night. I had started this some time ago, got the hood done and put it to the side. Once I picked it up again, it went quite quickly.

One of my goals is to finish up half-done projects. One of them being this sweater I started several years ago. It was going to be a Wonderful Wallaby, but I decided to leave off the pouch. I have made several of these already , so this one will just be a plain sweater with no hood.
It is also nice when a basket of yarn can make a comfy cat bed!

I have been on a mission to use up some of my stash. Most of the yarn I have on hand can only be used for small projects. So I think I am set for hats, socks and scarfs for awhile.

Well, here goes nothing! I enter the new strange world of blogging. I have been regretting not keeping notes on my completed knitting projects. So, I thought this might be a good way to go.
