December Themes

Photo © 2011 J. Ronald Lee, CC Attribution 3.0

Color: Metallic
Pattern: Folk-art.
For: The House. And it doesn't have to be holiday themed unless you want it to be.
Challenge: We're in the last month. It's a sprint to the finish. Look back at the goals you made in January and see how you did. Or just tally up all the projects you've made from stash and give yourself a big pat on the back.

And on a purely administrative note:  Next year will be the 5th year of the DeStash-Along here on Craftster!  I'd welcome any suggestions on how to make it better than ever, or mark the occasion in some way.

What awesome crochet, that1girl!  I'm afraid I don't have the patience for doilies and snowflakes, so I'm always amazed when people make them.

Just two quick things for November DeStashing:

A bag made from a fat quarter I've had since high-school.  It will be nice to finally get some use out of it.

And a little sweater for a little doll.

Great flowers, ya'll - both the ring and the beanie.

I am super stoked!  My old roomie and I just spent the last hour or so planning a crafty get-together to assembly line make a bunch of Christmas presents, and the best part is with our stashes combined we're only going to have to buy extra glue, felt, and pens.  The only downside is that our schedules don't combine until December, so I'm just going to have to work on other projects to work off all the energy from our planning session.

Well, since someone has to get November started, here's another lapghan (although I finished this in October...)

I need to get out of my granny-square rut and start in on the Christmas sewing.

We're approaching the home-stretch ya'll!

And with that in mind, here are some themes for November.

New Mexico Aspens by AluminumDryad, on Flickr

Color: Brown
Pattern: Trees, wood, or forest themed.
For: Someone who needs to be cheered up.
Challenge: Has there been a swap recently that intrigued you? Make something that fits the theme, even if you didn't get to participate. (Or you could just get your NaNoWriMo novel done.  That's like destashing brain space, right?)

bananaleg - That is a marvelous shade of blue on the cuffs.  I wish I had yarn like that in my stash.

that1girl - Amazing work!  You've been really busy.

I've de-stashed a bunch of paper recently between making a picture book for the Little Visitor Swap and a mini bookbinding class I taught at a nearby library.  Nothing to show for it as far as pictures go, though.  Now I just need a good use for paper scraps, since I never seem to use an entire sheet.

October is Here!

Lace work in a Canal Barge Window by david.nikonvscanon, on Flickr
Color: Black
Pattern: Lace
For: Pets. Our furry friends put up with a lot from us, and may not realise the sweaters we make for them are signs of affection. But don't let that stop you making a hoodie for your horned lizard.
Challenge: We've all got that special material we've been holding onto forever. Maybe it was really expensive, or it's the last little bit of a fabric you love, and you've never been able to bring yourself to use it. Gather your courage and just do it!

Oooh, I love the fingerless gloves.  I've been eyeing the pattern for the lace & buttons one for a while, but I tend to stick to the basics.

Speaking of mitts, I finished up a pair, too.  Technically the yarn was from a friend's stash, but she asked me to do something with it, since she was at a loss.  So she was destashing and got a new pair of mitts, and I got to play with new yarn.  Win/win!

Hands Up! by AluminumDryad, on Flickr

I also used up a bunch of supplies making up a scrapbooky thing for a swap, but didn't get any pictures, nor did I keep track of how much I used.  It wasn't enough to put a dent in the paper stash at any rate.

How did September happen already?  Time for Themes!

pencils in a cup by rhett maxwell, on Flickr

Color: Your favorite color.
Pattern: Plaid
For: Organizing.  In the US kids are going back to school, and all the school supplies in the stores are mighty tempting.  Maybe you can make yourself something to store the 3 million colored pencils you bought on sale. 
Challenge: We've all bought new materials so we could start a new craft, but never got around to actually sitting down and learning it.  Perhaps this is the month to finally do so?

I have some de-stashing to report, although it is a month late.

I made the "Holding Hands, Feeding Ducks" pattern twice in July because it was such a great pattern.

Once in variegated...

And then in solid.

I finished up most of another scarf, then stalled because I couldn't find the instructions for the final stage before binding off.  Hopefully it will turn up soon.

August has been a bit of a bust on the de-stashing front.  I started working on a shawl, but the stash yarn I had chosen for the project just wasn't working correctly, so I had to do some emergency yarn shopping while on vacation.  Yarn makes a great souvenir, and at least this time I cast on and knit most of it before it made it home to the stash.
