In case you missed the memo on the latest Stash Busting Challenge, right now I'm working on making projects using only the yarn in my stash and you're welcome to join me by showing off your own stash busting projects! So today I'm going to feature the first round of stash busting ideas to help inspire you as you try to give new life to your yarn stash.
I rarely have issues using a new skein of yarn, but when I work with small balls of yarn, I feel like I spend more time chasing runaway yarn than actually crocheting. And during the stash busting challenge, my goal is to put all those little bits to good use, so I need something to help maintain sanity. The ideal solution? A yarn bowl! There are some really lovely yarn bowls out there...but they aren't exactly in my price range at the moment. So, I decided to pull out my trusty crochet motto: when in doubt, make it yourself!
A new year, new resolutions, and new projects! I always love the New Year and the opportunity it gives us to reflect, restart, and make new plans. And if you're an avid crocheter like me, odds are good that at least some of your plans revolve around yarn.
One of my goals for 2016 is to put my yarn stash to good use! In case you're new to the world of wool, a yarn stash is basically your collection of yarn: all of your new skeins and your leftover bits after your finished projects. Lately my yarn stash has gotten somewhat out of hand. After picking up random lovely skeins on sale here and there and being physically incapable of getting rid of any yarn, I have a bit more stored up than I should. So I'm challenging myself to use it, and you can too!
Thank you for stopping by to visit my own personal corner of the web! Feel free to take a look around and check out what I've been crafting, crocheting, or baking. Hopefully you'll find something to inspire your own creativity!
