For those of you who do not have a blog, no need to worry. I've had a few friends say they are joining in on the fun but don't have a blog. Just leave me a comment or send me an email that you want to join. I'll add your name, or whatever name you'd like to be called, to the list of challengers.
I've also started a Flickr group so everyone can post pictures of their destash-along projects. I figure this will be a great place for those without blogs to get to show off their finished projects. It will also be easy for me to choose a few pictures each month to showcase on my blog.
Okay, so I don't know about you, but I've tried to narrow down the main item that I really need to destash. I came up with two: felt and yarn. My felt isn't too out of control, so I have decided to start by focusing on my yarn. Here is the main reason why. . .
We have a family friend who's daughter is a huge crocheter. Unfortunately, she is no longer able to crochet, which is so sad. The family didn't want to throw away her yarn stash, so guess who inherited it? Me! Last week, I received two gigantic boxes full of brand new yarn. And, according to my mom who is currently housing the stash, there are several other boxes of yarn waiting to be picked up. I guess I'll be making a trip home soon to get the rest of the yarn. :)
Well, here it is! My "old" yarn stash along with the brand "new" yarn stash. The "old" is color coordinated, the "new" is just shoved into empty spaces. :)
Whew! That is a lot of yarn. Daphne thought so too. She wanted a better look at all the fiber goodness.
I put my thinking cap on and, as far as projects go, I have a few ideas in addition to my ripple afghan, which has yet to be started. But, I am at a loss with the striped yarn. Any ideas? It is Sugar n' Cream cotton yarn so I am thinking maybe of wash cloths. I guess I better make a trip to the Lily website to see what free patterns they offer.
