Stash-Buster Challenge




I had promised myself a couple things in 2013.  One is that I wasn't going to buy another skein of yarn, unless it was to finish off an existing project.  My stash is becoming a bit out of control.  I love to crochet, but when your yarn is a focus of stress.  You need to so something about it.  Right now, I have enough yarn to finish an afghan (that is meant for my hubby) and probably four or five others.  I can't stand it any longer.  Well, I now found a small support group of sorts.  Linda at Linda's Crafty Corner and Ana of  lanas de Ana are having a Stash-buster challenge, no prizes, just all out de-yarning.  I can't wait to start to rid my life of a few balls of yarn.
But first, as a requirement to join in all the fun, we had to show a bit of our yarn goodness. (or craziness) 

 
 
 
I absolutely hated posting this picture.  It doesn't look like the pretty little stash button above.  It is an controlled mess, that I plan to take care of.  This is just a bit of the mess, I couldn't bear to post anymore.  I would like to finish a couple of purses and some cute little pouches.  We will see what I can get done.  Hopefully, at the end of the year, it will be mostly gone and I will be less stressed.  Am I the only one stressed about their stash?

  1. You could give me some! Ha ha! Have fun stash busting. I was in the fabric stash busting mode for the past little while, but my sister-in -law is in town and she wants to go to her favorite quilt shops tomorrow. Well, I just have to oblige!

  7. You are not alone! My stash is so embarrassing! I also have a friend who contributes to it with all her leftover yarn! My plan for this year is to make granny squares with all the little bits and pieces with a black background. I have one that my great Aunt made me which I treasure. I wish you good luck with yours! Looking forward to seeing some finished projects!!
