I'm on a crocheting jag too to reduce my stash. I like knitting but crocheting eats up yarn faster and I'm a better 'hooker' than I am a knitter. So far, I've done 2 Seraphina shawls and I've got 2 more started as gifts for friends (yes... I multi-task...). I have a ton of acrylic (or close to it...  Roll Eyes ) that I want to get rid of so it's shawls and charity items (mostly baby hats and afghan squares).

I inherited a ton of acrylic yarn, which i'm making log cabin blankets with....all odd balls, but divided by colour groups...slowly but surely the stash is reducing...but not as fast as i'd like!

Sounds great! Log cabing style like in Mason-Dixion knitting? ( I know that they didn't invent it but I am just looking for a mental reference)

Love those hats sggs!

I think I need to make more calorimetrys!  I made one when the pattern first came out and loved it but as I'm prone to do, I only knit it once. 

If all else fails, hide.  It works for bunnies.

I have to say I am doing well.  I made three baby hats, another calorimetry, and am working on a pair of legwarmers (I've been meaning to make a pair and since it just snowed here AGAIN...No time like the present.)

 Roll Eyes

I never thought winter would become a 9 month ordeal here in NY.

I actually read all 27 pages today during a lecture and what I have to say is that you ladies have me beat!
Dont get me wrong, I set off for a four month jaunt to Ireland and needed to stash bust by Christmas but would've you know they have wool shops here in Derry...
I'm leaving in three weeks and have a bit of a stash here to go through. I feel your pain. So far I've made six Mason Dixie bibs and one baby kimono, a dozen dishcloths for relatives here, and am halfway finished with a throw of nondescript, cheap chunky wool. Only three more Peaches n' Cream faded denim and the throw and I'm golden. Until I decide to buy more before  leave.
Anyway I hope to be contributing more to this thread. I do intend on not buying any more wool until I get home which breaks the rules in a way but I'm in another country...and I stash busted before I left!
I will offer and I did read the rules throughly and it did not mention anything about people bringing home wool from the UK. I'm just going to leave it at that.

I'm having trouble stashbusting at the moment.
I already started two sweater, and ripped them both out. So I've started my third, and it seems to be going ok.

pogmothoin - I've broken the rules too, just once though! The only thing that's important in this challenge is to use up as much as you can.

Trying to use up my wool-ease  Roll Eyes

They are plain and simple, but I like that! My next pair will be a lot more interesting.  Wink
