21  Re: 2011 DeStash-Along in Craftalongs by rottenlittleboys on: November 05, 2011 11:11:17 AM
Used up between 12-15 yards of fabric, two huge spools of Aunt Lydia's Crochet cotton size three, http://store.knitting-warehouse.com/crochet-thread-aunt-lydias-fashion-crochet-cotton.html and enough backing to make these pads.

I also used up a single skein of chunky yarn that I had no real idea what to use it for. Hat for little Christmas charity shop.

Life is chaotic at the moment and I doubt it will get much less so this year. So happy destashing everyone! See you in 2012!

Four more 'rugs' finished, laying out to have protective spray put on them. Made as seat cushions for our dinning room.

Yes, they all look a little different because I used all stash materials.  Smiley

Take at look at the back. This is my third project and I finally feel as if I have the hang of making it look nice, front and back.

Hello all!  Cheesy Life has been chaotic to say the least and will be for a few more months I think.

But even admist all of the chaos, I have managed to finish two things. Does it matter that one of these projects took me over a year to finish?

First, a little hat I crocheted for the local Christmas Store charity. I count this as two projects since I used up a single stash skein of yarn that would not otherwise be used.

Cushions for the seats of our casual dinning room chairs. These are all locker hooked and have used up somewhere around 12 to 15 yards of stash fabric. Oh it feels so good to be free of stash and have an actual finished object!

This is all four getting ready to be Scotch Gaurded because the backing used for most locker hooking unglues after a few washes.

I hope to have two more projects done by Christmas, but am not holding my breath at this time.

Love reading what every one is making here. Keep it up!

Oh, and special shout-out to AIMR. You so rock.  Wink

Edited to take out extra photo.

No where near a completed object, but I would really like to share one of my latest projects. This will not be finished any time soon, maybe not even this year. Not a difficult project, but it takes me a day and a half to make one fish and this takes 120 of these fish to make a blanket.

Ok, two more small projects.

A new dishmat using this tute. https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=372170.0

Next, a simple necklace using up stashed fish pendants from many years ago.

Ok, bear with me here please. I have finished four more projects, but for some reason, Craftster does not like my large photos.  Roll Eyes

I finished a cowl that was originally for me, but it kept giggling at me and finally told me 'Nope, not for you. For the kiddo's teacher.'

A nice bag for my aunt, the next time she has to go the hospital unexpectedly.

An apron made for my brother from an old pair of jeans of his.

And finally, a pair of awesome sleep pants for myself, no pattern.

Well at least I can show you the print on my new sleep pants.  Wink

I am up to 22 of 50 this year. Wow, I had no idea I made this much stuff each year.

Three more projects finished, up to about 18 projects finished.

Duckies in the Round, a filet doily pattern I found in Crochet World Magazine, Spring 2011 edition. I promise, this had been finished and blocked.

Climbing Blossom from a skein of Misty Alpaca yarn. If you want something scrumptious, squishy and wonderful to touch, use this yarn. Seriously.

And my third pair of socks this year. I am feeling really good about this as I had not planned on having them done until the end of June. The colors are much more pink than the reddish I am seeing here.

Love the quilt ScrappySue.

Oh, sweet gifts Spiffyhink.  Smiley

And I finally have something to share. Whew. It is not finished, needs to be quilted and the binding put on, but this is the destash thread, right?

I have been working on a quilt (of sorts) all from scraps. I had enough scrap and stashed brown and blue flannel to make the backing of a queen size quilt and just short 2 yards of blue and brown pinwale or baby wale corduroy for the front.

I really have no idea why I had so much of those two colors just sitting around. I have one skirt made out of the corduroy, but the rest?  Huh

Onto the pictures!

The top, with yard stick beside it for size reference.

The back. Lazy piecing here.

And a detail of one flannel print.

OK! I have one more thing to mark off my list. I have my first shawl finished for 2011!

It is from the incredible pattern, Soar! by 'Simple Knits' http://simpleknits.blogspot.com/2010/07/soar-shawl-to-crochet.html

Check out the unusual shape on this one. Yes, it is supposed to be curved like that. Cheesy

Destashed a skein of Sockotta Sock yarn, colorway 9. This thing is several years old, so I am quite grateful to have used it up.

From yarn to shawl, I love this unique pattern.
