1  Re: 2016 Annual DeStash-Along in Craftalongs by bushbaby on: January 27, 2016 11:38:38 PM
I am in destashing this year, albeit off to a slow start as I've been sick for nearly 3weeks now. I am going to focus on reducing my yarn stash (mainly so I can buy more nice yarn without feeling guilty). I have  managed to knit 2 hats and finish off a shawl so that is about 100-150g's of yarn used.

everyone has been so busy. I haven't because I am still off work sick (2 weeks and it's looking to become 3  Embarrassed) , but I have managed to finish a 2nd hat, this time for my hubbie.

I managed to finish this hat for myself yesterday:



and this is my Hubbie modeling it for me & showing of the matching gloves I made last year



I am going to make him one too but with a longer, turn up ribbed edging like he prefers.

I also got finished blocking my shawl so you can really see how it looks:

First finish (almost) of the year - a celtic knot shawl for myself. I'm not well enough right now to block it but it still looks good Smiley

So because I am sick right now my 'partner' is getting the finished shawl unblocked (for now) but hey, at least it got finished before the end of the month...which was the whole point!
