Stash-Busting Update :)


Wow, a month gone already?
Well let me tell you how my stash-busting is going.
In February I have managed to complete these two Stash-Busting Projects:


Kays' Scarf - 86g

And that by the hair of my chinny-chin-chin: I finished this 20 minutes before she awoke, the closest Birthday Gift Shave I have ever had LOL!!



In the picture they look so pink, they actually are fire-engine red :)


Makes my new Destash Total : 925g - Woohoo!!!

So what is up as the next Stash-Buster?

I am making the same pair of socks that I just finished for Jas- using the little square of blue that you see in my stash drawer above.

A closer view:


5 balls of squishy Drops Alaska :)

So a recap:

1. Jassy' Jumper - Completed
2. Birthday Gift for my Sister-In-Law - Completed
3. Birthday Scarf for Kayla - Completed
4. Socks for me - Completed

5. Socks for Jas
6. Socks for Kay
7. Pullover for Hubby
8. Cleo for me

  12. Thats a good idea. I should make a list of things I could do with my stash. Unfortunately my stash consist of lots of small rests that don't really fit together... well, they'll make great hexipuffs at some point.
    And yes, I'm very excited about you give away. I love those needles!
