Baby BlanketsThe past few months have been very unproductive for me. Projects have been started and then discarded. Yarns have been rolled or wound up with the intention of starting projects, and then just been abandoned to a basket somewhere in my craft room.
At the beginning of October I decided to sort through these (many, many) baskets and start working my way through the yarns. The goal was to just make something! Anything!! The yarn just HAD to be used!
I started off with a basket full of Elle Family DK, Elle Pullskein and Lollipop DK (about 22 x 100g) and decided to use that for granny square baby blankets.
I succeeded in making four 75cm x 75cm, and one 65cm x 65cm blanket in six days. Amazing what little gems were hidden in those baskets!
The 4ply was purchased before I knew whether grandbaby was going to be a boy or girl and so I bought pink and blue. The blues have been double stranded and there is enough to make a smallish C2C baby blanket and a SWIRLING SHELLS BABY SHAWL.
Halfway through these WIPs I was inspired by some colourful Lollipop Chunky and made a pinks, apricot, watermelon and brown rectangular striped blanket
and a blues and greens granny square blanket
I am quite over the moon with the number of completed projects. In my next post I will share photos of all the "project de-stash" scarves and shawls made.
What are your de-stashing tricks and tips? How do you conquer a creative slump?? I would love to hear your thoughts on this!!
