What to Do with the Leftovers ...
The leftover yarn, that is. You know how when you do colorwork, you often buy a 220-yard skein and only use a few yards of it? Well, the Bohus Swing Coat took five different colors, but only one was used much.
So you see the color that was most used ... leaving me with four other colors, three of which were barely touched! Since I used the fabulous Cascade 220 for the Bohus, I went to the 60 Quick Knits for Cascade pattern book, and voila, found this:
The Tweed Watch Cap.
It'll look better blocked.
The Bohus is pretty much done, except for sewing on the frog to fasten the front. It isn't a great fit for me, too snug on the top, and too billowy on the bottom, but I'll try to make it work. It wasn't a difficult knit, and I love working with Cascade, plus I got lots of leftovers to play with! I'll showcase the Bohus on the FO Friday blog.
Don't forget to stop by Tamis Amis tomorrow for WIP Wednesday, and see what all the other artists are up to!
