Candy Cane Christmas by tres.jolie, on Flickr

December Themes!

Color - Red & Green (no surprise there)

For - Last minute presents!

Pattern, etc. - glitter and other shiny things!

Challenge - any one want to take stock and tally up how much they managed to de-stash over the year?  Does it equal more than the new supplies you added to stash?

Will there be a 2012 Destash-Along?


If I know the crafters in this thread I'm betting the answer will be a resounding YES! Unless you girls are planning to make some heavy new year's resolutions? Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

I figured there would be. I'm looking forward to the great destash of 2012.

Indeed there will be!  And any suggestions about how to make it even better than this year (other than having themes up on time  Roll Eyes ) would be greatly appreciated!

It's totally okay.  My rule is something doesn't count as stash if you make something out of it within a month.

I've made a bit of progress, and actually managed to photograph some of it, so it's time to share (for the first time over a month).

First up, as a birthday present for a friend, a dye your own yarn kit, with everything but the kool-aid from stash.

Then a pair of handwarmers.

And then a really unflattering picture of me, but a decent picture of the calorimetry I made from the other half of that skein.

So that's two skeins of yarn and a fat-quarter out of the stash.  Not much, but every little bit helps.

This is wonderful!  I love how you changed it from country to elegant with the cunning use of paper.  Hope you have fun using it this holiday season.

Theme for Dec is going to be Xmas for me no matter what, lol.

Very true! I suppose I'll just leave us alone on our mad sprint towards the holidays, unless someone is truly pining for November themes.

I've managed a fair bit of de-stashing, but failed on the picture front.  I even made my halloween costume entirely from stash, but since it was finished about 30 minutes before the costume party, it remains undocumented.  But that's two yards of fuzzy blue fabric out of the stash (even though I'm finding blue fuzz everywhere).  There were a few other successful projects, that I'm slowly saving for the next sunny day and picture time.

Hello folks!  Sorry to have neglected you thus far in November.  It's been wild and crazy here. 
Do you guys feel like we need themes for the remainder of November, or should we wait until December?

I managed to whip up another one of my giant granny square lapghans in September, but couldn't get a good picture of it due to horrible lighting.  And now I no longer have any acrylic yarn in my stash.  Scary!  But now I get to concentrate on the nice wools that have been languishing for ages and ages.

September wasn't such a great month for de-stashing, mainly due to the fact that I do my best knitting in front of the TV, and was on a Top Gear kick.  Fast cars and yarn just don't seem to go together.  But now that there's a new Ken Burns documentary on, I may have better luck this month.

Hi All!

I thought I'd pop by with some October themes if anyone was in need of any extra inspiration.  They're kind of self evident, but hopefully kind of helpful.

Color: Black
For: Halloween (is anyone surprised?)
Pattern: wood, trees, leaves, etc.
Challenge: Bits and Bobs.  Does your stash include a box of string labeled "too small to save?"  Have you been saving one or two of a particular item without knowing what you'll use it for?  This month we can try to find ways of using the odds and ends in stash.  Not sure what an item is good for?  Ask!  It's fun getting a peek at other people's stashes.

Wow, everyone's been really productive!  I'm sorry that I dropped off the face of the earth.  August was a busy month, but the free-for-all lack of themes doesn't seem to have been a hindrance at all.

I'm posting September's a bit early to inspire or ignore as you see fit.

So, here goes

Color: Brown and other neutrals
For: Organization of all kinds - for your time, for your stuff, anything goes.
Pattern: Plaid
Challenge: "All done but the pressing" is a saying in my family.  It means we're so close to the end of a project but we just can't work up the motivation to do the final steps (threads clipped, ironed, ends woven in, etc).  I'm sure we've all got some projects like that lying around - too close to done to be considered a WIP, but not quite ready to use.  This is the month to put the finishing touches on them!
