Stash-Busting Update - March; FOs


Seriously, I can't really believe that it is the end of yet another month already!
Where is time going?
Anyway, nothing to do but try to keep up with it running away :O
As it is the end of the month it is time to update my Stash-busting efforts for the month of March, and also show you my finished FOs which I missed out on last week.

First I have Jas's Socks.
These weigh in at 217g


Next I have my Fingerless Gloves for Hubby - Weighing in at 102g



These were a great, quick knit, but turned out to be rather on the big side of things. 
Hubby has not got the smallest hands but his hands don't really fit well in these :(
They are pretty loose around the wrist and need taking in on the hands themselves - no, I know what you are thinking - I won't be ripping back - no way!!
This is a bit of a bummer, as he wanted to use these to work in his workshop (which is pretty cold - even now), but on the plus side, I now have a Christmas gift knit for someone with big hands ;) 

I am busy trying to put together a pattern that will be better suited to his hands, and once it is done, I will share it with you all.

I was hoping to have Kays' Socks done for today as well, but they are not yet complete so I will count them to next months total :)

So the Tally for March's Stash-Busting is 319g
Added to February's total of 925g 

Gives me a new Stash-Busting total of 1244g!

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 - Completed
6. Socks for Kay
7. Pullover for Hubby
8. Cleo for me
9. Scarf for me
10. Fingerless Gloves for hubby - Completed
11. Perfectly Pink Sweater

How is your stash-busting going?
I will be sharing this over at Tamis, Linda, Linda and Andrea today.
Have a super Weekend and a Happy Easter.

  4. My stash-busting is quite random. I should count what I used up though. It's nice to see your totals. :-)

    1. Hi Regula,
      It is quite interesting to see the amount of yarn I actually have lying around here and putting the weight to the projects does give me a bit more awareness - always a good thing, helps to put the handbrake on when visiting my LYS :)
      Have a super Easter.

  6. Oh boy! Looking at your stash busting total makes feel slightly ashamed, I haven't made nearly as much progress this year, time to step up!

    1. Hi Cathy,
      I can't actually say why I am so driven to finish this stash, I guess I feel bored looking at it and so I want it out of my hair, but don't feel bad, I definitely am generally not like this!
      Thanks for visiting.

    1. Hi Corrie,
      It is nice to feel like I am accomplishing something, and each time I look in my stash drawer an see the stash diminishing it does feel pretty good I must say. At least the fishmoths will have less to eat this year LOL!!

  15. Those socks rock! I love the utilitarian look of the gloves. They make me want to get out in the yard on these still chilly days and get some work done.
