And another off the needles

Finished last night is shifting sands in Posh Yarns Eva 6 ply, colorway blackboard.

Three skeins took it to 62 inches in length. I'm not adding fringe on this one because it's for someone who drives a hearse for a funeral home. I thought it would be a little more somber without swingy fringe.

That's the next project. My So-Called-Scarf knit in BMFA heavyweight, colorway Nodding Violet. This scarf is going to complement the syncopated cap. I love this scarf. I started on size 7 needles but went up to 8 because it was so stiff. This is a very dense knit. I imagine it would be quite lovely as a bed coverlet. Exquisite texture. I'll definitely be making more of these.

Speaking of Blue Moon, they loaded some new colors on friday. Lots of new colors. I think I know what I'll be asking Santa for this year.

And in the interest of stash reduction, I've listed 11 skeins on ebay. Blue Moon Seduction (the tencel blend just isn't for me), Lorna's Laces Shephard Sport (Never going to use this one), 3 skeins of Perchance to Knit (Much to fine for my taste), 3 skeins of Yarn Pirate (ditto on the fineness), 4 skeins of Claudia Handpainted (don't care fore the texture), and Sundara sock (the color just didn't grow on me).

I guess I've turned pretty picky with my yarns. But with a stash as large as mine, I'm being truthful. I'm never going to use these skeins, and they really belong with someone who will love them more than I do.

That Blue Moon in the So Called Scarf is just to die for.
