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!
My personal goal is to use what I have instead of buying more yarn (although I'd be willing to make an exception for a commissioned piece if needed). I'm going to try to find uses for all of those wonderful skeins, crying out to be used for something great. You can decide how strict you want to be about your stash, but I'd love for you to join me!
I'll be posting some helpful tips and showing you what I've been making with my stash to help give you some ideas. And you can join in by sharing what you've been making with your stash! You can submit your projects and I'll be picking a few to feature each week, with links to your own site or shop (watermarks are welcome!). Tag your work with the hashtag #stashbusting2016 or email them to me to join in on the fun! Together we can come up with some great ideas for our yarn and give all that lovely fiber a purpose again.
Feel free to share with any crafters you know! The more, the merrier. Knitting and other yarn-related projects are welcome along with crochet projects. Any type of creativity is welcome! You can find me on social media or in the comment section below if you have questions or want to participate. I look forward to seeing your beautiful projects and sharing my latest with you all! Happy hooking!
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!
