My biggest challenge is going to figuring out what to do with my bin of mostly Red Heart yarn.  I was vegan when I started crocheting, and that's the brand that the local craft store carried, so I have a ton of it.  I did the ami thing for awhile, but I usually didn't end up finishing what I started.  I'm not sure what to do with all of that yarn since it's too uncomfortable to use for wearables.

Afghans  Smiley I love RHSS for blankets/throws. it's really hard wearing and softens up enough after a wash or two. I wish I could get it over here.

I was also going to say pillows and purses. Purses can look great in crochet and they don't need to be soft! That's what I'm doing with most of my cheap yarn.

YARN BOMBING! I want to do this with yarn I score at the thrift store. I just love it, it's amazing to see. I think granny squares, that way I can piece something together to fit just about any size or shape. Woot!

white- I decided I need to stay ahead on my etsy shop themes. So I was planning to use some of my white eyelet, muslin, and vintage trims for something wedding themed. I will probably tea dye.

stripes- I have striped linen I am saving for drawstring pants.

myself- ? I have a couple vintage copper charms I have been thinking of making for myself. I need something to finish it. Beads, chain?

challenge- finding, sorting, and making a home for my stash would help with my crafting.

I ordered a 10" heddle loom to make scarves. that should help me destash.

The striped theme inspired me to finish a WIP I started a month or two ago. It's a stashbuster rug for my wood floor. It can get quite cold in the winter, and now when I wake up in the morning, I won't have to put my feet on the cold floor while I look for my slippers!



I have a good start on my white item, which is a Doctor Who adipose, and I have 4 days off from work, so I hope to finish it.

I've also decided to use up some of the Granny's daughters I received in a swap to make a seat cover for my vehicle. I have heated leather seats, which is great for cold weather, but the black leather can get quite hot in the summer, so having a cover will come in handy then.

i can scratch striped off the list for this month  Grin
i had actually wanted to make this fabric into a skirt but when i got ready to cut today i could hear my bempa reminding me of how i have made way too many already. i only had a yard but since i am teeny tiny it was just enough for a simple tube dress. i traced the patern fro on of my fave jersey knit store bought dresses. i learned that jersey knot does not move through the machine as easy as cotton but i got the hang of it in no time. any jersey knit sewing advice?




i also folded/rolled the tube top part down for a cool skirt



yay for 2 in 1  Grin

apm, I am so jealous of your teeny tiny-ness. I would love to fit into a dress made from one yard of fabric! Especially one that cute!

And yarnbombinb is awesome. Basically, people knit or crochet a piece and then sew it onto things out in the world. Trees, bike racks, benches, railings... Anything. If I was on a computer, I would post some links, but I'm on my phone. You should look it up, though, because there are some amazing yarn bombs out there.
