I'm a big supporter of stash busting and only knit using various balls of yarn (actually, I seem unable to be yarnogamous  Wink ). You could try a wrap, a long, slinky, scarf, a shrug or something spectacular. Mixing those yarns together can be so liberating. Here's one idea, which is the Feather&Fan Ripenings shrug. I think that one might require you to buy a bit more yarn, though:

Yes and more yes! Eyelash can be very sexy. Just think of all those soft little lashes brushing up against your skin... how about this:

That's Habu eyelash lurking in there....

I call it 'Organic Feather n Fan Wrap' because it grows, not by itself exactly but almost. First, cast on about 100 stitches on your largest needles and then follow the feather n fan stitch while casting on groups of stitches at the begining of every row. It goes on from there, obviously, but it's a very free-spirited kind of design. Here's another pic:

Once I began, it became a bit addictive. I think it's because feather and fan stitch does different things with different yarns which is very exciting to me.

8  Free Range Kelpy Wrap in Knitting: Completed Projects by JaneTwo on: September 07, 2007 02:58:31 AM

Hi, everybody. Here's something to try if you're feeling free-range adventurous:

These wraps are so simple to make: just one long rectangle knit on gigantico needles. If you'd like to make one like it, track down a hank of Great Adriondack's Surprise in 'Kenya' and then go a-gathering for like shades that pick up it's hand-dyed mix of mysterious tones. There's a rich undergrowth purple happening there, lots of tealy-greens and every other shade of green under the trees from grass to emerald.

Here's the recipe:

With size 9mm/US13 needles, cast on 100 stitches with your lushest, greeniest yarn (I used La Lana's Bombyx hand-dyed silk) and work 10 rows seed (k1,p2)
Change yarns to GA Surprise and work two-wrap drop stitch
Change yarns to turquoise and work another 10 rows seed
Change back to green and work 4 rows garter
Continue working in blocks of seed, garter and drop stitch alternating yarns that pick up the colors in the Surprise (or any variegated or hand-dyed yarn you choose) until you reach the end. When do you know when the end comes to meet you? When you think it's long enough. Really.

Though I've used tres expensive yarns, this design will work with any yarn, any weight, honest!

10  Re: Which sense do you use most while knitting? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by JaneTwo on: June 13, 2007 04:05:15 AM
I'm such a sensualist that I always knit while dreaming or imagining foreign places or exotic scenery or, very often, something edible. I've name some of my knitwear after food, usually fattening, sugary things that I wouldn't dare eat but figure its safe enough to knit.
