Love the black and white blanket--and it is striped!  Is it a gift?

ha ha I pulled a top out of the bag I use to "donate" (it has been sitting in the room for about a year now)...I have no memory of why it was put in there in the first place...oh yeah, it is sort of ugly and hubs hates it...oh, but it is clean! Cheesy

Ha! I've totally pulled old things from my stash that I didn't remember putting there and worn them again. It's still destashing, right?

The socks are beautiful!

I also like the scrappy quilt...I have never seen one done in that shape...it looks like you have to use foundation paper?  It is going to be huge and colorful..I like it a lot!

Love the darker green socks. I really need to try making socks someday. I keep collecting sock yarn, 2 skeins in each color. What size needles do you use?

I have been slowly destashing, bit by bit. Since I have put myself on a budget, I am not trying to use up my large stash. Just keep it manageable. I am hoping to buy a house in a couple years and  need to start saving. Luckily, I have enough stash to keep me busy.

I did finish a woven bracelet. I like them to wrap double around the wrist so they take longer.


projects I am planning:

a couple more woven scarves
more woven bracelets both flat and round
fabric baskets for yarn storage
infinity scarf, my sister keeps mentioning them
naalbinding with my new needle, a hat?
use resin before it goes bad

Oh, yes: condemned clothes usually have to be made unusable as soon as possible or I will rescue them from the condemned pile & wear them again Roll Eyes<big sigh>.

I do that too  Embarrassed
A lot of my fabric is sheets and duvet covers, the whole family donate them to me when they buy new & I scour the local charity shops for groovy bedding too  Grin

I'm slowly plodding through my yarn stash at the moment, I doubt I'll make a serious  dent in it though  Shocked

I have 3 60L containers full of yarn, plus three sets of drawers with three drawers in each, full of yarn. I even colour organize  Cheesy makes life easy when I'm after something for a craft. I'm destashing too, but I will admit, I have brought the occasional bit of yarn. Patterns need to be destashed of the "to do" list too!

I sorted my yarn into colour groups last week, apart from the cones of machine knitting yarn that are all just piled up together in the back of the closet, the Leaning Tower of Yarnia  Cheesy Some is hung in bags with the patterns and hooks/needles required but most is in boxes. I have plenty but it's never quite just what I wanted...

Kookaloo_Starr  I love the idea of the Leaning Tower of Yarnia.  I've just got the yarn cave that lives under my bed.

that1girl  Such cute mini books!  I may be stealing the idea for this years' Valentines.

ysmeine  Neat weaving.  I've never seen it used for bracelets before.

taramor  Those socks look so cozy.

And a few things to add to my measly January DeStash List.

A dozen of these, made as party favors for my grandmother's 81st birthday tea-party.  There were little heart bookmarks that slipped over the back, but I didn't get a picture of those.


And a bookmark that I used as a gift-bow type thing on her birthday present.


So in January I managed to use:
4 skeins of yarn (which were given away as late Christmas presents) 1 skein that was destroyed by moths and 1 skein that was immediately frogged and therefore doesn't count, 7 sheets of scrapbook paper, and 4 sheets of cardstock.

I ended up with 2 more yards of fabric in my stash and one extra ball of yarn.  But then I visited my grandparents, and I swear every one of their friends who knows that I like to craft cleans out their closets when I'm there and I have to take it with me (Have you ever tried saying no to little old Italian ladies trying to give things away?  It can't be done).  So I now have three extra grocery sacks of yarn, and a zillion fat quarters that I'm not quite sure how to use.

Allwaysinmyroom - thank you. Yes, I use a paper foundation. It is a great way to use even very small scraps. It is called 'spiderweb' and is from Bonnie Hunters blog http://quiltville.blogspot.com/2005/06/string-spider-web.html.
Ysmeine - thank you - I like the dark ones best, too  Cheesy. I used size 4 (European size). I like your bracelet - is it done in tablet weaving?
