I knew this stash yarn would find a good purpose...


I have had this Horstia Maulbeerseide Schurwolle (say that three times fast) in my stash for three years, and now I'm going to use it for Bella Paquita. Hooray! The skeins not pictured are already knitted up in the top of the sweater. The chart is making me crosseyed, but I think it's turning out OK.

Also, this is my first SKC post. Hi everyone!

I love that color. On the top how did you do the tapering off? I finally got it but after I thought maybe I was supposed to put the stitches on stitch holders because now how do I do the 3 needle bind off? Any suggestions?

Ugh, I'm right at that point now, and the only way to do it is with short rows. Being a small-chested girl I've never had to learn how to use them before, so I'm struggling to learn. I think there are instructions on knitty, but I may put myself at the mercy of the ladies in my knitting group next week.

Hmm... short rows. I have to try to envision that. Sounds right though. I might take mine out if it looks like I could get a smoother finish. Unfortunately work calls and I shouldn't even be on the internet!! Good luck
