Slashing the Stash

Baby Surprise Jacket
January 2016
Dee (Tangled Up in Sticks and String) has challenged herself to Slash the Stash in 2016. I've decided its a great idea and have begun the slashing of my own stash.

The first project was the Thrifty Baby Surprise Jacket (BSJ) posted last week, and since the pattern was out, I grabbed two skeins of Noro Kirara that I purchased years ago, and cast on another BSJ on smaller needles.

I had previously used the Noro to cast on a scarf, but it just didn't look right, and so the knitting stalled for months. I frogged the scarf (I only had about 6 inches done) and balled the yarn, waiting for the perfect project. I think it is very happy becoming a BSJ.

With any luck, this BSJ will be finished by the end of the week. If I have enough yarn, I will add a collar.

Yarn:
    Noro Kirara (51% wool, 29% cotton, 10% silk, and 10% angora)

Needles:
    size 6 US
