Actual Knitting On The Knitting Blog!

With less than a month left in the stash-dash challenge, the pink sweater now has a back,

there's another shower cloth,

and the last chemo cap is in progress,
 leaving me with just this:
left to use up. This weekend I hope to work on Andy's sweater and maybe even finish it, but I don't think it will take all of the remaining black yarn. I'm not sure exactly how to account for that as far as the stash-dash challenge, but maybe I'll see if Andy would be interested in a matching hat.....

There has finally been actual sewing:

and Theo is just beside himself with joy over the new projects to fur.
The placemats and napkins are either 1/3 or 1/4 of a gift for some close friends coming over on Saturday.  They recently redecorated their dining room using primary colors, so I'm making 2 yellow, 2 red, and 2 blue placemat/napkin sets (and will throw in green if I have the time).  This is the first real sewing I've done since cleaning the sewing room, and I am working really hard to keep things nice and tidy.....which could explain why only the first color is done.............
