This is Stitch Diva's Silken Scabbard (http://www.stitchdiva.com/ProductInfo.aspx?productid=SDS-048) in wool and very homemade-looking (as opposed to handcrafted).

I decided to use some beautiful mustard-coloured yarn from a thrift store sweater. Half into the Scabbard, I saw that I was running out of yarn, so I thought I would throw in some stripes. Having finished the sweater, I found another huge ball of the mustard-coloured yarn. The moral: keep your stash organised!

The sweater also stretched a lot after blocking, because being the lazy person that I am, I didn't treat the "recycled" yarn at all, just ripped and reknit.

Well, I still like it.

Forget about keeping your stash organized.  The color changes are stunning.  It looks sort of sunset-esque.  I think it makes the sweater.

Hehe, well, yes, that's what I'm probably going to do.

Thanks, everybody.
