Summer Stitching Stash Blast #14

It is week fourteen of the Summer Stitching Stash Blast. 

I started and finished a scarf last week. It is just a chunky scarf knit in garter stitch. It is sort of ugly, but I kind of love it. I had some scraps of yarn left over from the blanket. There was too much to throw out, but not enough for an entire project, so to my stash I went. I looked through my stash and found three full skeins of Knit Picks Bravo worsted yarn in shades of gray, blue, and purple. They were not a perfect match to the colors in the blanket, but, in my opinion, close enough. Held together they would be chunky enough to make a scarf with the leftover yarn from the blanket. The scarf knit up fast due to the chunky yarn and size 13 needles. I am planning to purchase a new wool coat this fall in gray, and I think this scarf will be perfect for the cold days of winter. 

What are you working on currently? Have you finished any projects recently? Tell me about them in the comments or link-up a blog post below! 

The rules:

- Write a blog post showcasing your current and recently completed needlework and sewing projects. If you would like to combine your stitching post with another topic, such as a daybook, weekend happenings, book review or what your wore to church, that is cool with me.

- Any post that is not about needlework, sewing, or stitching in some form will be removed from the link-up, as will any post that is offensive. (I do not see that happening, but I need to say it.) See the first post for a the full description of needlework. 

- Please place a link to the most current Summer Stitching Stash Blast in your post so other stitchers can find the link-up.

- Show the other bloggers some love by visiting them and leaving a comment. We all know how hard it is sometimes to finish a project. A little encouragement may be just what she needs to complete her project.
