A Puzzling Stash Buster!
Oh how I love this stash buster!!! What a great summer project. Small pieces, portable, colorful, quick..what more could you ask for? This Puzzle Pieces Pattern is on Ravelry, of course, for $5 (yes, it's a paid one but worth it!). I'm going to pull out all my worsted weight stash yarn, go through the colors, pick a palette and one unifying color (which I will probably buy) and get going NOW! There are corner pieces, edge pieces and middle pieces. Fun! The knitter who did the puzzle pieces pictured slightly felted hers, which is a cool idea. Also, check out the other projects posted. One knitter made a quilt out of hers by backing it and inserting batting. Oh, I've got it!!!! I think what I might do is make a diaper changing cloth that just rolls up. Wouldn't it be fun to do the puzzle in Blue Sky Alpacas' Worsted Cotton (organic, oh-so-soft and washable) and back it with one of judipatuti's awesome laminated fabrics (also machine washable)? Put a contrasting bias tape around the edges and a grosgrain tie. I'm on it!
