The wrist warmers are lovely!  I have loads of sock yarn and just found a pattern to make crochet wrist warmers that uses sock yarn---because I doubt if I will ever make socks...

taramor--thanks for the knit tips--I just learned that while knitting in the round, you do garter stich to make stockingnette--it is sort of backwards from what I learned so I am trying to adapt..this knitting and crochet round things is making me pull my hair out!

psyche--ha ha--I did a Mod Swap and I liked everything I made for my partner that I made one for me as well! I even used the same yarns and beads!! What a great idea!

oh, and be strong ladies--resist the temptation to buy more stuff--congrats to those who fought the urge and won!!  Cheesy

 I really love those wrist warmers... both of them! Perhaps I'll give it a try soon... after a few other projects!
  I honestly can't say I resisted temptation... I just  didn't have any spending money. Now, it may have been a disaster going into the H.L. with money yesterday!

I'm an idiot!  Want a great, low-stress, ultra fun way of using up stash?  The TOY SOCIETY!

Funniest thing happened today, the wool I'm currently using for m cardigan (the lilac) was all given to me by my nan. I went to see her today and she asked if I'd been doing any crochet lately (she taught me) and I said yeah, I'm using the lilac wool she got me to make a cardigan then she says..."I was really annoyed, I went to my club today and someone had brought in more of that lilac wool for you and a member of the club gave it to someone else. It would have been perfect for you because you already have about 6 balls!" I said "It's OK nan, it doesn't matter" then I get told...
"It's alright, there's some more coming for you"
 Cheesy Looks like my lilac nightmares are going to be never ending hahahaha.

I used some brown yarn from my stash for a swap and used up several bits to make this bag for a fire themed swap.


Unfortunately, there is a minimum $30. value. I had found an item that was perfect for $15. and wanted to buy some nice yarn for the swap and maybe make something. I went to my lys today and spent $80. in yarn. I am making wristwarmers and including a skein of yarn. That will leave me with two skeins of Manos. I will make something for my daughter though. her birthday is tomorrow.

a little backpeddling, but I have a few stashbusting projects planned. I just need to find time.

Thanks, everyone. I haven't given up on the hat yet. Might pick it up this evening for a bit. My son has been asking me to make a little blanket for his zebra. We had a very cold snap in January, and he saw a horse with a colorful blanket when we drove past a farm. He thought that was pretty cool. Zebra is his favorite toy animal right now, and I offered to knit him a small blanket for zebra to wear this winter. I finally got to it this evening. Now the rest of his animals need a blanket, too. I now have a purpose for those tiny balls of acrylic in my stash! This one is just garter stitch, but I can turn the rest of the blankets into practice pieces, maybe... Smiley

I just went way over board then kept half for myself. Now I am second guessing the project I made today. Which means I may have spent $80. mostly for myself. I still have the value of the package with the gifted yarn, but I don't feel like it is enough. Plus now I need more yarn to finish the shawl I started for my daughter. Swaps always make me spend more money.
