Quick photodump of recent destashing.

pillowcase that doubles as wrapping paper

toxic green dishcloth

and a few decorative papers for book covers

These don't make much of a dent in the stash, but I'm feeling productive none the less.

Keeping with our crochet theme, I whipped this scarf out yesterday.  Its pixeldiva's tea scarf pattern, which is super easy and a great one skien pattern.  I got a 60 inch scarf out of 160 yards of worsted.

Quick pic of a dishcloth I finished over the weekend.  Started in on the Christmas knitting and already feel like I'm behind.  Whoohoo!

I've had a productive week, but of course it is raining today and I can't get any good pictures.  So you'll have to make do with a rather icky one until the sun decides to shine again.

Finished up a baby blanket.  Its about 30 inches square, which I suppose is stroller size.  It doesn't look like much, but is nice and skwooshy.  Still trying to decide if it needs ribbon to lace through the eyelets on the edge.  That's the one thing I do not have in my stash.

The blanket, plus a few other projects makes four skeins out of the stash this week, which isn't so bad, if I do say so myself.

Welcome aboard meleriffic!  Grad school budgets (whether your own or not) are a good reason to work on crafting from stash rather than buying new stuff.  But its sooooo hard (says the person who rewards herself at the end of a semester with a yarn binge...)

I finished this scarf back in June but only just got it blocked.  5 1/2 feet long, and just over three skeins of Patons SWS out of stash.  The colors are much deeper and richer in real life, but the lighting in my room was wonky today.  I am very, very pleased with it.

I love that fishy charm.  Isn't it nice to finally use something special you've been saving forever?

I finished another lapghan for charity.

That's two more skeins of red heart out of the stash.  I really need to buckle down on the yarn situation though.  Having recently moved I realize how much more I have acquired.  I moved out to Iowa a year ago with one box of yarn.  I now have three. 
Stash-busting: I'm doing it wrong.

Love the bags and all the other projects that popped up while I was without an internet connection (yay for visiting parents who still live in the dark ages).

I finished up a bookbinding summer class a few weeks ago, and managed to use up a little bit of stash for some of the projects.  Bookboard and paper for the textblocks was provided, but I got to trot out some of the pretty scrapbook paper I horde for no apparent reason.  Most of the books I made had end papers from stash, but here are a few with stash covers as well (easier to photograph  Tongue).

I ended up coming home with more than I used up.  My classmates were discarding such pretty papers when we cleaned out our drawers.  But I have bookbinding II for the fall, so with any luck it won't stay stashed for long.

I finally got around to photographing a scarf I finished earlier this month.  That's 3 more balls out of the stash, and finally puts an end to my massive collection of SWS, which makes me rather sad.

Thought I'd share some de-stash progress of the non-yarn variety.

My college roommate is getting married later this summer, so I'm helping to plan her bachelorette party.  Made up the invites last night (about 10 sheets of card-stock down) and since I didn't want to buy a whole box of envelopes for the occasion, I made some out of scrapbook paper.  I own way too much of the stuff, considering I don't do that particular craft.  I went through about 25 sheets of pretty paper, what with the duds and the ones the cat decided needed shredding.  Here's a few of the finished products:

Now that finals are over, I have some projects to post.

This little guy is the main reason I had nothing to post for ages and ages, as I was learning faire isle during the busy part of the semester.  And I don't have enough in stash to finish the second mitt (one of the problems of working from stash). 

And then a simple scarf made with yarn from an old frogged thrift store find.  Ugliest sweater in existence, so my housemate has dubbed it "Muppet vomit."  The yarn is nice and squishy though.
