Wow!  You're really cool!  That's so impressive!  I think I'm going to start doing that - it's a great idea

If you're getting bored with the garter stitch, you could start practicing special stitches - just so long as they aren't lacy, of course.

And I actually had a teacher tell me he prefered it when I was crafting in class.  It meant I wasn't fidgeting like a gopher on speed.

Those weren't his actual words.  But I could tell he was thinking them.

That's a good idea.  I have so many yarns that I only have a small quantity of.  Blanket squares for a good cause seems like a good use.

You are a genius!  And a generous one!  Now I need to stash-bust (and I'd totally wear the t-shirt Wink)

I say to myself "SELF!  Here is the deal: no more new fabric or yarn until _____ (fill in w/ ever growing list of projects) are complete."  I even created a list in excel.  Instead, do you know what I did?  Bought sock yarn and commenced knitting a new, UNLISTED project.  I chock it up to my sewing machine being broken.  But that is really a very poor excuse. 

I think I need an intervention Smiley

Thank you for showing your generous skills and giving us all a good idea!

Smiley I think this works especially well as a stash-busting project because it is so small . . . a sweater or an afghan or even a pair of socks can take weeks or months to finish, but a little rectangle knits up in a day (or about an hour and a half, if you're me).  So it works as instant gratification, too - you get an FO right quick instead of in a month or two.
