craftylittlemonkey - Those projects are amazing!  I especially like the sock creature (those little wings are adorable).

I estimate I did about 45 craft projects last year, 40 of which were primarily from stash.  I bought 2 yard of purposeless cloth just because I liked the patterns, and I have a few partial skeins of yarn lying around that were bought to finish up stash projects.

Not all my stash projects made it onto the board, but the ones I was really proud of did.  I finished another little sweater yesterday, but there hasn't been any light for taking pictures.  So if the weather cooperates in the coming week, expect one more little project from me.

 Tongue. so sad for me.  I just reneged on what I wrote yesterday. We went to Walmart and of course I had to check the craft area and I ended up purchasing four skeins of yarn because I liked the colors. I'm a sucker for vargiated yarns.

Oh well.

Ahhhhhh...the yarn counts even if I use it...I have so much every time I take a skein three or four fall out.  I was so proud of myself for using up some skeins too.   Oh we'll, my craft room is upstairs, so I don't always have to view my weakness! Roll Eyes

Popping by with the last pictures of 2012 projects.  Doll clothes don't use up much stash, but they are a lot of fun.

It's a modification of a Lati Yellow Dress pattern.  I started out with 24 sts, increased until there were 11 sts for each arm, and left off some of the increases for the body.  My girl's a bit smaller than a Blythe, but I'm sure you could get it to fit with a slightly larger gauge.  It's great for scraps of fingering yarn.

I did hardly any destashing during 2012,  but I didn't buy much in the way of new stash either.

This was the last thing that I did manage to finish in 2012 was my Christmas hat.   Most of the things came from the stash but I did need to buy the fabric, feathers and the bird to finish the hat.
