Yarn Stash: Projects

Hi everybody, I will be doing a segment every week about your yarn stash or crafting stash. I will be talking about what projects I'm working on from stash or suggest ideas about what you can make from your crafting or yarn stash. Also I will be informing you of any new item I've bought to add to my yarn or crafting stash. So to keep you in the loop, I just recieved a about 10 to 12 rolls of yarn from my mother. She gave me some out of her stash as a Mother's Day gift to me-because she's trying to clear out her stash. I was happy, oh so happy. I love to build my stash and I'm not ashamed that I have a lot. this gives me plenty of ideas to use up my yarn and get more. For me, it's like candy. I LOVE YARN!!! Don't you.

My current project that I'm working on from yarn stash is a crochet lap-throw. I'm doing this lap-ghan in palm leaves stitches. The first row started out with chains skip 2 and then single crochet. The following row consist of 3 double crochet in each single crochet that was previously made. The next project I hope to make from my yarn stash is a pair of crocheted socks. I'm excited about this project, because it will be the first time that I'll be making them.

What do you all have in your stash? Is it yarn, how much? What's in your crafting box, and what are you currently working on now?

Be Crafty,

  1. Yes stash's are wonderful - you have options then! Good luck with your project!

  2. Oh my! What a rainbow of happiness in that stash! I have yarn -- everywhere, all over the place. Love it! I don't need more, but I buy more. I hate reading patterns, so when I do, they are usually small ones that won't take a lot of thought. I like to make projects that I can finish in a short amount of time. Need to feel that sense of accomplishment. Your lapghan sounds easy enough. How many chains did you make and what size is the finished lap throw? I might give that a go (and might have to go out and find more yarn for the project!) Peace & blessings to you! Tammy
