I love leftovers
When I wasn't feeling too wan, however, I worked on this oddball log cabin afghan. I love it because I can look at each strip and remember what it is left over from, like a little memory quilt. For example, the really bright spring green (2nd up from bottom) is left over from a scarf I knit my friend Aimee in IL and gave to her the day before her wedding. The grapey-purple strip on top of it is left over from a scarf I knit for Brett. The small purple strip 2 above that is leftover from Nancei's clapotis I knit her. The big black strip at the top is leftover from a hat I knit my brother Tim a few years ago. And so on and so on. I'm also getting that virtuous feeling of spending NO money on this project and clearing out oddballs and partial bits out of my stash. Spring cleaning knitting!
