Employing the attitude of my new favorite saying, I have come up with a perfect year long craft-along.
Beginning today and running until December 31, I will be hosting (and partaking in) a destash-along. The goal is super simple: to use as much of your current craft stash as possible by the end of the year. That is it!
If you would like to join in, just leave me a comment or send me an email that you will be participating. I'll add a link to your blog on my sidebar under Destash-Along Challengers. Maybe you want to knit a sweater with yarn you got for Christmas or maybe make a necklace with some left over beads. As long as a portion of the project was made with a craft product you already own it is good for the destash-along!
I have already decided on my first project. I will be crocheting a rippled afghan with yarn from my stash. I am hoping I can crochet it using 100% of my yarn, but I'll have to see how much yarn I'll actually be using once I start the project.
Feel free to tell all of your friends about the destash-along and/or put my button on your blog.
I hope this craft-along will not only be fun but will help free up some space in our homes. Plus, it doesn't hurt that it will save us all a little money in the process too!
