Stash and FO

My outfit a day idea is going really well: but my partner in crime is having camera issues (she isn't too good with things with wires). But I posted yesterday's outfit and todays: check it out!

In knitting news: I've decided to try to knit up 1.5 the amount of yarn that I want to buy. For example, I want to make a infinity scarf and a shawl, and make an order for knitpicks of 250 grams. So I have to knit up 375 grams of yarn before I order it. I don't know if this will work because I need to finish the shawl by February!

Want pictures of the full stash, fiber, leftovers and all?
"Real" full skein stash:

Leftover/fiber Stash:

Also, I finished a hat!

Pattern: Rose Red by Ysolda
Yarn: Gedifra Angora Merino 1.5 skeins
Needles: Size 6 circ
Mods: None!

I love it. It's so soft and light, and is very warm. This picture is preblocking but I haven't taken any since! Currently I am working on my mom's sweater. Her birthday is Thursday and I have two sleeves and a collar to finish! I doubt that I will be able to finish it but soon it'll be done!

Your hat looks great, Rose Red is a lovely knit.

Good luck with your plan, I'm working on not buying yarn until at least my birthday in May!
