I had 2199grams yarn in my stash to knit.

Here are the photos of the knitting I did for this challenge.

Snowflake gloves knitted in Paton's Kismet for my GD size 4 yrs

Snowflake gloves in Double Knitting yarn size 4 to 7 year old.

Large and small patchwork cushion covers in DK and Heather mix 4ply child's bolero

Unfinished sparkly DK Aran bolero size 4-5 yrs now gone into the UFO challenge on the "Knitters" team

There is also a children's machine knitted cowl, and a pair of Maroon DK gloves for an adult which I have knitted for a cat charity which I forgot to photograph. I will add them to this blog ASAP.

I loved this challenge and I knitted a total of 678grams by hand and machine knitting.
Not very much really, but its got me back to machine knitting which is really good exercise for the upper body. Good for the brain too! LOL!

Leaving 1521grams left to use in the next stash buster challenge which begins in April I think!

Pam the challenge leader gave us really good exercises and stretches to do each day, which was really helpful as a break from knitting, some I had never done before and really helped. I have added them to my tracker and will do them often.

Here are the gloves which are actually maroon. I have given them to the cat charity.

This is the machine knitted cowl which is knitted, but not finished and is now a UFO.
