I'm In! I have a whole stash of acrylic and budget is tight around here so until I use what I have...I can't buy anymore! I have folders and folders of free patterns I have printed off of the net but have never made so I should be good for a while. Right now on the needles is a pair of the mary jane slippers posted here on craftster done double stranded with burgandy and gold red heart for the hp releases coming soon! After these I am doing a purse with the rest of it. I'm also knitting a tank of my own design with black and white simply soft. we'll see how that pans out.

Emily, you truly are the queen of stash-busting!
And aura_reincarnation, i love the colourway on the first hat. Are they adult or baby hats?

I picked up a really old project today, an entrelac blanket I haven't touched for about 4 months. I did one more row, and now I need to buy more yarn for it.
I've done loads of scarves on the knitting machine too.

Gah, that reminds me I have most of a pound of love that is pale blue and looked nice wrapped in plastic, but turns grey and dirty the minute I touch it Sad

Hmm, make cat toys out of it? Or scrubbys (technical term) for cleaning dishes?

Finally finished up one of my skeins of Wool-Ease! Wahoo!

I just knit a baby-sized hat out of some leftover skeins of green and beige Wool-Ease. And now the green is all gone -Yay!

Here it is being modeled by my very tolerant son (as I write this he is still happily playing on the floor, wearing the hat):



And the top (not actually wonky, just looks weird because it's hard to take a picture in low light of a wiggly baby)

The hat and your model are adorable! Do you have something planned for the rest of the beige yet?

Mienna- I love the cat photo.  She/he looks like it is either pondering life or thinking wispfully of days outside laying in the sunshine.

For yarn that you hate/don't want at all.. think about elementary ART TEACHERS.. they can use any type of yarn with the students!
Even short scraps of yarn.

All my little half balls of sugar and cream go to them everytime I have them available...It's funny because I would send my kid to school and he would come home with crafts and I would say "hey thats my yarn!" LOL

Mienna: I think the rest of the beige is going to be contrasting stripes on another wool-ease hat.

Artteacher - great idea! A good friend of mine is actually an art teacher. I'll have to ask her if she wants my Caron Simply Soft collection... Hmmmm...

I heart Caron Simply Soft, hehe. I think I'm going to start a stash-be-gone project tonight, since I finished my the top I was making. Smiley
