oh man--laughinglark--I meant to comment on your weaving!!! I love the colors and what great table runners and placemats weaving could make!  I am glad you pointed out the pitfalls...I never thought weaving too tight could end up being not very flexible for say, a scarf!

mio--wow--you sure produce a lot of hats...great variety as well!

I have to produce a wide variety otherwise I'd have given up interest and stopped making them long ago! lol

Thanks, everyone. Smiley I made some more over the last couple of days. Some yarns I have are really fun colors, but rough. Especially the blue and green one. I'm hoping I can wash and block out some of the stiffness. If not, I'm eyeing that piece of weaving for a bag of some kind. I might make myself some fun and crazy project totes with the rougher, but more colorful, yarns in my stash.

On the stiffer yarns, I have a little more trouble controlling the tension, so the blue green scarf has a few bad spots on the side. They are good for practice, though. I love bright colors and variegated yarns, and someday I'll be working with better ones. Meanwhile, I'm having a blast learning how to combine my colors.

This one is a variegated purple with a plum yarn for the weft. It's going to be stiff, too. Oh, well.  Smiley

wow--totally looks like great fun--and such beautiful combos of colors!

You know, the stiffer ones would make fabulous belts!!  A purse is a good idea as well...have fun and keep posting!

I haven't done much destashing lately, but I haven't added anything to my stash either.

Here's some pouches I made in may when I had spare moments at school. The grey one is for my pattern drawing supplies (rulers, glue, tape, pencil case etc.) and the other is for sewing supplies (scissors, pins, needles etc.). I put scissors and pin cushion for scale.



My sister asked me to make a small pouch for her, but I made three. She took all of them, but I'm not sure if she's going to keep them. She said she'll keep the one with buttons for sure, but might give the others to her friends.

It is somewhat heartening to see that I am not the only one slipping on my de-stash resolution.  But we've been at this for six + months now, so it is understandable that we've hit a bit of a lag.  It is time, therefore, to put back on our de-stashing battle armor and return to the fray.

Last year for motivation I kept a log of what projects I had made and how much stash supplies they were using up compared to how much I was adding to my stash.  (It was easier to do then,  as I only bought two balls of yarn the entire year  Tongue)  This year I figured out that I've used up around 18 balls of yarn in 8 different projects, and brought in around a dozen balls of yarn.  Not exactly effective de-stashing, but since the new yarn is all fingering weight the volume has gone down considerably.

I've gotten a few projects done but I'm not making any quick progress. I did some sorting of material/clothing for repurposing and I really need to get sewing if I'm going to get prefolds and fitted diapers done before this kid gets here.

I should hopefully have some knitted projects to post soon. Nothing overly exciting but destashing nonetheless!

Gaudiknight - most of my new yarn is fingering weight too. Funny how my yarn seems to keep moving to lighter weights. I just bought my first lace weight too.

Ok, so not going good on destash - I bought more fabric, but it will be used up by July 20th.  I had bought pink but then sil said my niece wants to be barbie island princess for her party, ok, we'll see what I can do, she gets her wish and it only cost me $8 - I'll shar pics when it's done.  As for the pink, I normally do an outfit for her 'party' at our house to, she's crazy about pigs at the moment, so perhaps it will be a "princess of the piggy's outfit".

On another not, I am getting rid of garbage and managed to get all my books AND games into one cupboard, my desk is still needing cleaning, and I want to destash some beads.

Looking for Sophia the first fabric and Frozen fabric (preferably flannel, but would settle for cotton) and Phoomph.  I'm in Canada and the companies are that I could order from charge $20-$30 shipping, so if anybody can find some and wants to swap/sell, I would be eternally greatfull.
