I destashed a green ball of bulky yarn and half a ball of red yarn. The green is actually two skinny infinity scarfs. A wrapped one that was crochets and the knitted one underneath. Not sure what I think of them yet. The red hat was knit on straight needles. I'm having trouble locating my needles. I crocheted the booties. I may change the pompoms.

The scarves and crocheted items are nice, but I.m really in love with your jewelry display form.  Cute!

Thanks! The pattern is free on ravelry.com the person who made it also made options to make it a bear, kitten , or a bunny Smiley

Love the scarfs and the display. I think I need to mae myself one of those. Thanks for the inspiration.

My Dad's mother passed away this fall and I inherited tons of her yarn. I think I am going to start my first afgan with her yarn and use up a lot of the yarn in the process. A blanket it a better memory I think than all this random unused yearn laying around the apartment. Smiley Excited and nervous to take on such a huge project it will be my biggest crochet undertaking yet! Grin

I destashed some pink yarn, but it was more of a fail.I tried to make a baby hat with owl cables. It seemed to ruffle at the ribbing, so I ripped that part out. I then added a scalloped edge as it wanted ruffle still.

Two projects to show! My partner received her tote bag, so now I can post -

Mermaid Appliqued tote



I made this over the weekend, but it's not 100% De-stash. I did have to buy two extra bags of pearls to finish it out Sad

S Door Wreath

Isn't it aggravating to have to buy more stuff for a project that was supposed to be "stash?"  But - hey- as long as it gets done!

I did a bit of paper-crafting this weekend.  I took all my theater and movie tickets out of the desk drawer where they were rattling around and put them in a 6 x 6 scrapbook I'd bought a while ago for who-knows-what purpose.  They didn't all fit, so I'm hoping to find some extra pages to put in, but my local craft stores don't sell any that small.  No pictures, but I'm quite pleased with the result.

I brought a giant box of supplies over to our yearly Valentine's making afternoon, and we got a lot of cards made.  But you can't really see any difference, because it was all scraps.  Story of my life.

My favorite card, just so I have something to show for myself.

Ehinders, I love that thread catcher idea. It's something I could really use, as I'm one of those people who's obsessive about snipping threads, but my wastebasket is on the wrong side of the sewing machine, and I waste a lot of time turning around to throw bits away. Did you back the weighted part with some non-slip material, or does it stay in place okay without it?

Wulf

Wulf- I didn't back it with anything. Just the same fabric that's on the front. I had some poly-pellets leftover from making my DD a weighted blanket, so I put those on the bottom and stuffed it with regular poly-fill on top. It stays put nicely. I made sure to give it enough weight that it doesn't slide off. I used this tutorial: http://mypolkadotapron.blogspot.com/2011/05/thread-catcher-tutorial.html?spref=bl if interested.

ale0059- I love that pink puppy. super cute.

texscrapper- Love the mermaid tote! The Intital door wreath is awesome! Been wanting to make one for awhile now....maybe this week. Smiley

guadiknight- I love the mice on that card. Too cute!
