The burgundy ombre charity scarf is pretty.

I also love the dalik. I need to work on some Dr. Who stuff this year.

I found a use for small oddments of yarn. I made a cobweb catcher that slips over a broom or mop handle. Nothing exciting to look at but it works. I'm making one for my sister too. I clean her house for her at the moment and I have to stand on a chair to reach the ceilings/corners with a feather duster but not from now on  Cheesy

Belladune you're making me jealous. I love roving. Of course, I can see how having so much fiber could be a little overwhelming. (Not to mention take up a lot of space.)

Ooooh, that cobweb catcher is a great idea, and a great use for yarn there's not much of (and even if you run out, you can just change colors, no big deal!).  I need to make a few of those!

What pretty scarves!  And, each time I see washcloths, it reminds me that I want to use up some leftover stash of cotton yarns!  They are so practical for me!  Nice job, michelleandbean!

K-star--that is an ingenious idea--did you use a pattern or just wing it?  I have high celing fans that I have to drag out a stepladder to dust!  It would help to destash some of the above mentioned cotton yarns!

Bella--wow!!! I knew you had a lot of fibre, but that is amazing!

aww--Smeddley--I love Daleks...I am still working on my silly dalek hat!!

I saw a detail in that link to the purse that I really like...the pocket on the FLAP of the purse to hold cell phones...no matter what purse I use or design, my poor cell phone gets lost in it or else I can't get to it fast enough when it rings (rare, since I barely use my phone...)...can't wait to see when you make it!

(Un?)fortunately it's mostly fleece!!  I have a love hate relationship with commercially preped fibres. It's so lifeless, because they soak it chemicals to get rid of the veg, and all the combing takes all the bounce out of it. 
I do plan to type it up today, and I'll share it with you guys.

No pattern for the cobweb catcher Always, I just chained enough to fit around the handle and when I thought it was long enough I made chain loops.

Have been using up nothing but stash this year. When this cold snap breaks, I intend to take an actual inventory of my stash and see what is out there in the building.

On to the stash busting! Smiley

I finished two aprons from stash, needing only to buy 3 packs of bias for the binding. The snaps came from a kit my husband bought for me two years ago. Do you see the waist strap in the picture? It is a different color because I ran out of the blue snowflake but had plenty of the white. Problem solved and I have a new apron!



Made up two pair of fleece socks for son. Don't they look like duck feet standing there by themselves?  Cheesy




The blue material you see in the background is more fleece that will become a pair or two of socks for my husband or maybe myself.

And in the spirit of using it all, or at least almost all of it, he got a pair of rough and tumble fingerless mitts so he can work on his creations out side.




There is still a little more of this left over and I am trying to decide if I want to make a second pair of mitts for him, a dusting mitt or a yogurt incubator blanket.  Undecided

My inventory is now a google doc.  click if you want to see what kind of fibre I'm drowning in.  https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B_h9mkyFldu8eHRZYTdKV3JmblU/edit

Lovely projects, Rottenlittleboys!

I think the "duck" feet socks are cute!

I told my hubby that I almost feel like a pioneer woman working from my stash...making do with what I have...just like the wait strap on your apron...hey, it works! Cheesy

Bella!!  Your inventory is almost like a shop catalog!  Where do you store it all! ?
