I did a few projects like that last year.  I kinda bent the rules by knitting them immediately before the yarn ended up in my stash basket.  Therefore I wasn't technically adding to my stash, right?  A convenient loop-hole, really.

Finally something to show!

For the record, the pink background color was the oldest thing in my stash.  It is the tail end of a ball of yarn that I got for my silly peg-loom back in elementary school and later used to learn to knit.  Sad to see it go...

For the record, the themes are now also posted on the initial post, for ease of access in the future.  Somewhat easier than rifling through all the pages. 

Quite jealous of the others who've managed to get some de-stashing done already.  I've just spent the past couple days staring at piles of yarn and searching for my size 7 needles...

Oh wow, we've got a lot of people.  This should be fun!

For those who are interested in a the themed approach, may I suggest a repeat of last year's?  They seem to have enough variety to fit anyone's stash...

Not that themes are required for posting or anything like that, but I think the idea is that they can provide a little bit of inspiration if you're stuck on what to do with those 27 yards of polka-dots you've been sitting on for three years...

If people feel themes would be helpful, I'm all for them.  They didn't seem to last too long in last years DeStash-Along, but that isn't to say they wouldn't work this year.  I'm more of a "whatever gets the job done" kind of gal, myself, but they might be fun.

Thoughts, folks?

Sooo, do we post pics of what we make with our stash? Or is this a place for talking/ideas? I'm pretty new to craftster! haha.

Both!  In 2009 we posted pics of the stash, things we'd made, links to patterns/tutes, lists of projects we had planned, confessions of supply buying binges, whatever.  It was a pretty multipurpose thread.

Welcome aboard!

Welcome to the second annual DeStash-Along!

Are you trying to be a frugal crafter this year?  Are your friends/significant others/goldfish becoming alarmed by the vast crafting resources you have amassed?  Is your collection of UFOs extensive enough to deserve a place in a museum?  Do you simply enjoy the challenge of making things out of the materials on hand?  If so, this is the thread for you.

In the spirit of last years' thread (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=282392.0) we will be posting pictures of projects made predominantly from stashed materials, and encouraging others in their quest to rediscover and utilize their stash!

Suggestions to help stir up the creative juices for de-stashing throughout the year.  Don't consider yourself bound to these, but if they inspire de-stashing, all to the good.

January: white, winter, plaid, owls/birds, for yourself
February: red, polka dots, hearts, "adult" things, for the kitchen
March: green, pin stripes, shopping bags, inspired by a game, for your SO/other loved one,
April: pink, paisley, rain, recycled/repurposed items, for the bedroom
May: purple, argyle, toys/playthings, subversive crafts, for your parents
June: blue, ATCs, craft-themed, pin-up girls, for your kids
July: yellow, animal prints, vacation, patriotic, for the bathroom
August: metallics, lacy, sea life, crafts from a different time, for the exterior of your house
September: black, back to school, more arty less crafty, wearables, for your pets
October: orange, sparkly, skulls/skeletons, inspired by music, for a costume
November: brown, natural prints, craft you've never tried before, trees/leaves, for a holiday gift
December: holiday colours, animals, inspired by a book or movie, snowflakes, for charity/acts of Craftivism

Finishing out the year with a few projects.


6 of these little guys:

A Pair of Dashings:

And a book from a while ago that I forgot to post:

I just did my end of the year tallies, and it looks like I did about 45 projects from stash in 2009.  I only bought two balls of yarn, a package of book-cloth, and a small thing of brads.  But my stash is so big, you can't tell the difference.
