I have some things in my stash that I can't figure out what to make into. (No baby/kid items, I have no use for them).  Anyone have ideas for:

about 450 yards of light pink, sport weight acrylic
about 200 yards of variegated Red Heart
4 skeins of white and lavender cotton boucle
about 200 yards of teal sportweight cotton
1 skein of purple worsted acrylic
2/3 skein of pink/green/purple fun fur

Also, I've used up some scraps making sachets- knit a square, fill with something that smells good (I've been using teabags), sew it up, decorate with ribbons/beads, and you're done! I'll post some pictures soon.

You could make washcloths from the cotton (as long as it's 100% cotton).

I wanna join in this kal!  I've already officially declared this the summer of the stash-busting, and am trying to make myself use up 50% of my current stash before I buy more yarn.  So far I've killed 9 balls of cashmerino aran with a puff-sleeve cardigan from fitted knits, and I'm currently turning a few skeins of lamb's pride superwash into the back-to-school vest.  After that, I have three balls of doucer et soie to attend to, 7 balls of dabbie bliss aran tweed (it's so itchy that I frogged the sweater it once was only an inch from finishing), some red and white worsted merino from a thrift store sweater and tons more ...
posting my progress here from time to time would certainly be welcome motivation to reach my goal.

Hey Jello...have you done any knitting for charities?  I live in a big city (detroit) with a lot of cold people in the winter, and I knit hats and mittens for shelters and schools.  They accept pretty much anything, and you know that it will get used!

I've been pretty good at the destashing....although I did participate in the Webs anniversary sale (before I signed up for the destash!).

I just wanted to update that all of my yarn (ALL OF IT!!) is packed up now, and I can say that i am the proud owner of 26 full sized (not kitchen sized) garbage bags full of yarn.  I heard that gasp...stop it, I love yarn, and I've stopped buying clothes and shoes.  So there...

When I unpack it all in the new house (YAY NEW HOUSE WITH A CRAFT ROOM FOR ME!!!) I'll take a picture of all of it together.

I agree, knitting for charity is fabulous on several levels.
Jello: I suggest: http://www.snugglesproject.org/ for to The Snuggles Project, a nonprofit linked to Hugs for Homeless Animals. They ask for small blankets for shelter dogs and cats donated by crafty crocheters, knitters, quilter, and sewers. These blankets are great stash busters, quick, and easy to make and sent to local shelters in your area.
A good way to get those acrylics that just seem to pop up in the bottom of stashes.

Thank you for linking me to that!!!! I just read there whole site! I love it and I love that i dont have to mail them the items. Even small blankets weight alot some times! I will soo start working on one tomorrow! I need to call my local shelter first tho. I want to make sure they will take them! If not I will call another shelter! I have to do this! I have gotten all my pets from people who no longer wanted there birds,bunny,hamster and I found a very sick kitten in my yard last august that lives with me and the other pets! They need all the help they can get!  Grin
Thanks again!

No, my dad packed up the camera for our trip, but when I get back, I'll take pictures of the brimmed hat I crocheted. The brim turned out a bit wonky, but otherwise, I'm proud of it!
