10 project challenge-a flurry of stash knitting

Over in the Bohoknitterchic group on Ravelry we've been doing a 10 project challenge, where the goal is to knit or spin 10 projects from our stash of yarn and fiber before buying more yarn and fiber.  I've been knitting busily for a couple of months now, but I haven't shown you any of my projects!
Up top there is my Featherweight Cardi, a design by Hannah Fettig, knit in Knit Picks Shadow Tonal.  It fits just right and I'm very happy with it.  Our local knit shop Stash is doing a Hannah Fettig KAL, so you'll see quite a few of her designs walking around Corvallis soon!

This one is my Girl Friday Cardigan, the quintessential tweedy, cable and lace, shawl collar cardigan.  I used Kathmandu Aran that I had from frogging my Pimlico Shrug.  I found some lovely $5 buttons and fortunately only needed three of them! It's perfect I think..
 This cowl is just a simple K3P1 cowl knit from some of Savetheplanknit's hand spun.  I won it in the TdF and Ravellenic Games in the Boho group.  It was wonderful bobbly thick and thin stuff and I love how the cowl came out!
 This hand spun is from some more of my local Romney and BFLlocks from Ironwater Ranch.  I added wee silver bells to it and it's for sale in my etsy shop here.
 This circle scarf/cowl is a test knit for my friend Shannon, which I knit with some Hobbledehoy Fiber that I'd spun while wrapping with a metallic thread.  I love the colors and couldn't bear to sell it in the shop, so I knit with it!
And this one is Avery from Melissa LaBarre's pattern.  I knit it with some super soft Berocco Pure Merino, which has for some reason been discontinued.  It's the best accessory, goes with everything, easy to wear, lovely texture..
There are a few more things done recently, but I'll share those another time!

These are beautiful knits! I especially love the blue of the featherweight and that lacy sweater!

Great spinning!
