September Stash-Busting....

Finally, a FO and a Stash-Busting Project done :)

Meet my Cleo (Sorry the light is a bit odd this morning!)

Drops Cleo 141-18

Here is a comparison shot - the original design on the left of the screen:

Drops Cleo

I like it, it feels great and I am glad I managed to get it finished with an awful lot of patience and ripping back :)

As this is a Stash-Busting project let me update those totals - YEAH!!

My Cleo weighed in at a tiny weight - amazing for a whole pullover, but it weighs 366g

Add that to the total thus far:

3'567g
366g
3'933g

So cool, almost 4kg of wool knitted - amazing!

So a recap on my stash-busting drawer and projects:

1. Jassy' Jumper - Completed
2. Birthday Gift for my Sister-In-Law - Completed
3. Birthday Scarf for Kayla - Completed
4. Socks for me - Completed

Don't forget: Tonight / This afternoon for my American friends will be this month's Knitting Madness Hangout which will be a worldwide, LIVE event.

Today's topic - Project Bags. 
We will be sharing what we each have inside of our bags - don't miss it. 
It is a great way to network with other knitty bloggers and a super way to introduce yourself and your blog to the World :) If you can't be available for the chat, you can watch the live streaming of this event here on the blog.

It would be awesome to meet some of you, see you later.

I am sharing this with my usual lovely FO ladies :)
