It's been another productive week of stash busting here, albeit in small quantities. I'm so glad that I put as much emphasis on using up various bags of yarn as I did on making particular items, because it's had a very motivating effect. I've continued to make a minimum of one hexipuff a day for the Beekeeper's Quilt, crocheted some end of term gifts (to be revealed next week), and made the iPhone earbud cover I blogged on Friday - all from "leftovers" and alongside my bigger knitting project. Very satisfying.
Last night I came up with a list of possible items that could be made from small quantities of 4 ply/fingering weight as that's what I have most of, and also a few ideas for new designs I'd like to try out so I'll be adding those to the tag "beyond the hexipuff" over coming weeks. The first I'd like to try is this pattern by Jennifer Sugarman, although I'll be calling it a 'Yarn Sock' for fear of attracting the wrong type of blog traffic!!
We are going to a birthday party this morning so I'd better say farewell get myself ready. I hope you all have a lovely Sunday and will look forward to reading the other YoP updates later tonight. (There are still people joining the group, so if you're tempted, pop over and take a look!)
