First Cast-On of 2021

My Mom and I thought it would be fun to start the new year with a new easy project, so we cast on easy diagonal scarves with some yarn from our stashes.

The yarn is a mohair gift pack of Adele’s mohair, which we got from Biscotte yarns several years ago. My set is Underwater, and my Mom got Tuscan Terracotta.

Ever since I got this yarn, I kept thinking I should really design something to knit with it. In the end, we are using one of the patterns that came with the kits. This coming year I am going to try to knit down stash as much as I can, so it feels good to be getting this massive box of yarn out of the stash and into a project. It is knitting up very soft and cozy, too πŸ™‚

How about you? Any new projects for the new year?

  1. That’s a good idea: new year cast on, knitting down stash, all of the above! Those blues are pretty. I’m still nose to the grindstone on Franca, but I did cast on the litmus cowl with my advent yarn. I’m going to have so much yarn left over! I will put it toward a memory blanket.

  2. Such gorgeous ocean colours. I have just got to half way through my ADVENTuresome Shawl. I have some baby camel and silk handspun that I keep searching for a pattern for. I already have 2 shawls with this fibre so was thinking a hat or mittens. 220 metres of Aran weight in purple…arrrggghhh decisions decisions. It’s so soft it seems a waste not to have it next to my skin though. In the meantime I’m working on the shawl.

  3. Those colors are just fabulous! That box of yarn is the kind of thing that languishes in the stash for far too long because I don’t want to use it! I mean, it is so special, so there must be an absolutely perfect project or use for it. I love the scarf, but I can see why you wanted to create something even more special with your own design. Great first project for the new year.
