February Themes


I Heart Victoriana by The National Archives UK, on Flickr

Color: Red
Pattern: Hearts
For: Someone Special
Challenge:  Weed your stash.  As you were looking it over last month you probably ran across a few items that you know in your heart of hearts you aren't going to use.  Maybe your tastes have changed since you acquired them, maybe your great-aunt Mabel insisted you take them and you couldn't say no, or maybe you can't even remember where they came from.  It's okay to let them go!  Take those things to the goodwill or keep an eye out for a local group that could give new life to your crafty cast-offs.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: January Detention - WIP
SPEW: n/a
House: Hooflepoof
Project Name: Squiggle Dress
Project Page Link: Made using this pattern
Brief Description: I cobbled this dress together back in December since the fabric reminded me of a weird combination of Christmas and doctor's waiting room couch upholstery (how could I resist?).  The bodice came out much larger than expected, so I put off sewing the lining and snaps until this weekend.


Finally Finished by AluminumDryad, on Flickr

My OWL is going... not well.  I am utterly befuddled by the pattern I intended to use, so I thought I'd switch to one that was charted instead.  It's still not looking quite right.  I may post a picture of my progress later to ask for opinions.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Bertie Bott's Every Flavor Bean - Satsuma
SPEW: n/a
House: Hooflepoof
Project Name: Sweater for Autumn
Project Page Link: n/a
Brief Description: Yarn/thread has been around forever, but knitting itself is only a thousand years old (maybe two, depending on your sources and definition of knitting).  And using it to make sweaters/jerseys/jumpers/whatever-they-call-them-in-your-part-of-the-world really only started up in the late middle ages or early modern period.  They didn't become popular for people other than fishermen and laborers to wear until the Victorian era.  So knitting sweaters is a traditional, but not necessarily ancient, past-time.  And since I traditionally make doll clothes, this is what I ended up with.

I've got my first finished DeStash project of the year to share:


4/365 Mitts by AluminumDryad, on Flickr

That particular skein has been kicking around forever since I couldn't find the right project for it.  That'll teach me to buy yarn just because I like the colors, with no real project in mind.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Class - Charms
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Basic Mitts
Project Page Link: Basic Fingerless Mitts
Brief Description: Got some post-christmas knitting done with some yarn I've had in stash for a while and which was resisting all my attempts to turn it into anything other than mitts (I've tried it as both a hat and a cowl but it refused).  Warm and blue - I think it'll do.

And now for something completely different:

Owl Proposal

OWL Subject & Option: Transfiguration - Option 1
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Dragon Wing Shawl
Brief Description: Lace weight yarn hanks contain a ton of yardage.  For this project I plan to turn two skeins of laceweight yarn (nearly 1,000 yards) into a shawl.  To add to the magical nature of this project, I'm going to use the Dragon Wing shawl pattern.  Still trying to decide whether there will be beads as well.  I hope to have this done by the end of the semester.  The knitting itself doesn't look too terribly complicated, but there's going to be a lot of it!

Time for my massive project dump to finish off the 2014 crafting extravaganza.

Here's what happened in December on the DeStash Front

One Christmas Dress:

Christmas Mischa by AluminumDryad, on Flickr

Two Scarfs (Scarves?)


Two Zippered Pouches



And I think that finishes off the year.

Of the 70 or so projects I did this year, 47 were from stash.  Not too bad!  I think I may have come out even on the crafting stash vs. acquiring stash front.

(And for those who care, of the 70 projects, 30 were doll clothes, and all but three of those were from stash.  That seems to be my go-to-project these days Cheesy).

108  2015 Annual DeStash-Along in Craftalongs by gaudiknight on: December 31, 2014 12:44:07 PM

Grover and Frances Folsom Cleveland Portrait Advertising Card by Cornell University Library, on Flickr

Stashes!  They're pretty awesome, right?  They can represent years and years of carefully (or not so carefully) curated craft supply hoarding.  They let us sleep secure in our bed knowing that should the world as we know it end tomorrow, we will have enough googly eyes and pipe cleaners to use as currency in the new barter economy.

This craft-along isn't about being ashamed of our stashes, it's about creating with them.  We recognize that stashes come in all shapes and sizes, and can be amazing resources or occasionally overwhelming.  We're here to marvel at your creations, cheer you along, and help you with your DeStashing goals during the next 12 months.

All are welcome, whether your craft is sewing, tatting, beading, or welding.  Join in any time, be it January or June.  The more the merrier!  The monthly themes are here for people who thrive on a challenge or are in need of an extra bit of inspiration, but don't feel yourself restricted by them.  Simply dive in, post pics of crafts made from your super stash, and join in the discussion.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: December Detention - Holiday Decorations
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Christmas Dress
Project Page Link: Antique Lilac's Sundress Pattern
Brief Description: I found the neatest Christmas fabric at Joann's.  All my dolls had Christmas dresses already except for this girl, so it was necessary to bring some home.  Now she just needs a cardigan to go with it.  Perhaps I'll have it done by next year.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Study of Ancient Runes
SPEW: collection at my mother's church.
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Winter Scarf
Project Page Link: n/a
Brief Description: Last time I visited my mother I noticed her church was collecting warm items for a group of refugees who hadn't experienced winter before.  I whipped this scarf up out of stash materials while I was visiting for the holidays.  It turned out much better than I was expecting, and will hopefully keep someone nice and toasty.

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Headmistress' December Challenge #2 - In Person Gift
SPEW: n/a
House: Hufflepuff
Project Name: Understudy Scarf
Project Page Link: Made with the Tea Scarf pattern by pixeldiva
Brief Description: I was given very short notice of the fact that my grandmother wanted a scarf for Christmas this year (less than a week).  My first attempt ran out of yarn 10 stitches before the end, and just wasn't looking right.  So I dug through my stash, found a ball of Encore worsted and started crocheting this at 11:50 on the 23rd.  I finished before noon on the 24th and had it wrapped and ready for giving the next day.  Whew!
