Sock Yarn Tee

I was desperate to find a simple, quick and easy pattern to help me work through my one skein stash of yarn. Yes, I could make a couple dozen hats but I was hoping for something more. Then this shirt came to my attention. It's the Country Kiddie tee from Pixie Purls. I had the perfect yarn too. I had bought a skein of some beautiful Socks That Rock yarn in Blush. I really love the colorway and one skein was just enough.
I love when things just come together to create such a pleasing result. As you can see it can be worn over long sleeves but it can still be worn along as a short sleeve tee. I used the medium weight Socks That Rock and used the 18 month pattern so I'm hoping it can last all the way into the fall. And have I mentioned I love the yarn?
Now that I'm working my way through my yarn stash, my fabric stash is calling to me. Yes, I know I've said it before but it's high time I get down to some sewing. I've chosen that pattern, cut the fabric and now all I have to do is sew. Let's hope I find the time soon.
Do you have any favorite one skein projects? What sorts of things do you make when you have a yarn or fabric stash to bust?

  1. I'm planning to make something like this for one of the six babies we know being born this summer. (When there are six, it gets interesting, yes?)
