My last stashbusters project is finished!
The Fiery Bolero from IK Summer 05. It's not blocked, as it's far too hot here in London today to think of getting the iron out.
Knitted in DB Cotton cashmere. It splits, but I love the finished knitting. I'm not too sure about this bolero. The arms seem to be long and thin.
This is knitted from the centre back, increasing gradually until you have the full back width. My knitted cast on looked staggered, so I chose to cast on all of the back sts and shape using short rows. Same for the increases for the sleeves - I cast on the whole sleeve length and then used short rows for the shaping.
Three projects, over three months, from stash. What a wonderful idea, and many thanks to Dani for hosting this. It's helped keep the stash under control, and I have three wonderful FOs to prove it (although the bolero is a gift for someone).
