My Rose Ribbons Shawl is proof that half forgotten stash isn't always a bad thing. I bought Knitting Lace Triangles by Evelyn A. Clark back in 2009 (the print version of the book is no longer available, but there's an electronic download available on Ravelry), planning to cast on for the Sand Dollar shawl as soon as we got home. It was the perfect project for some yarn I'd bought at the Brown Sheep outlet the previous summer. But then there were other things to knit, and quilts to piece...that's the way it usually goes.
After I finished Treads in January, I wanted another halfway challenging project. I pulled out the book, and some skeins of Cotton-Ease that I'd bought on sale a few years back, and cast on. That old stash does get used. Sometimes not for what I'd bought it for, but if I use it for a project I love, I'm happy.
Pattern: Rose Ribbons Shawl by Evelyn A. Clark
Yarn: Lion Brand Cotton-Ease, Taupe, 2 1/2 skeins
Needles: vintage nylon circular, probably size 8
Now I've got a fabulously warm shawl to snuggle up in -- and the temperature is in the nineties.
