I made yet another scrappy Westknits sweater!  The pattern is Reis by Stephen West.
For this project, I went through my stash and pulled all the light worsted, dk, sport and even a bit of fingering weight. I used a lot of cascade 220 superwash for the base (bright purple, blue-green and light grey), along with superwash merino and alpaca/llama. My background was always made of solid colours, and the texture with variegated or gradients.
I started this in October, made the cast on, a few rows and let it sit in a basket for a while. I wasn't convinced that the shape would suit me well, and wasn't sold on the purple. Going through my stash again convinced me that I had enough fun colours to make this work. And it turns out I love the fit! It's boxy, with fitted sleeves and the perfect yoke.
I made it smaller than the pattern suggests for the smallest size. Details can be found on my project page. I didn't change much otherwise. I tought about making short rows to elevate the back, but it didn't really need it. 
I'm always on the lookout for new ideas on how to use leftover yarns from past projects, so I guess it's fair to say that I'm not done with this kind of process yet (I might never be!). T
