I am knitting this garter stitch shawl from a silk/cotton blend yarn that I recycled from a thrift store sweater. I don't knit much, but this is coming along pretty quickly. I got the pattern here: http://mary4169.tripod.com/Stash_Shawl.pdf I'm not sure what to do about the border yet, if I can find some yarn I like here I'll use it; if not I'll have to hit the thrift store again.
I am almost done with a patchy bag for Etsy; it's all green prints with a celtic knot appliqued on the front. It's my first scrap project of the week.
