Bily yarn stash

WIP Wednesday: The Kitchen Sink Blanket

yaRRns By Sep 17, 2014 No Comments

Remember when I was stash busting and found bits and pieces of bulky yarn?

(You say you don’t? Then come check out my Facebook page for yaRRns and, ya know, like me!)

After all is said and done there were so many bits and pieces of bulky yarn. I considered donating this yarn and when I went through my stash I had so much that I was not using that I knew that I was not gong to use that I was able to feel relatively guilt free about keeping the bulky. But what to do with this yarn?

Bulky yarn begging to be made into a squishy blanket


The Bee suggested I make a blanket since the weather is cooling down and I thought sure…but?
The “but” is becsue blankets are so repetitive that I get bored in the middle of the project and never finish. This basket of scraps should be a way to work around not finishing projects. Between projects, while I’m watching the news, when I just need to practice stitches I am going to work on this blanket.


The yarn diet I put myself on is still going strong although this pattern of a Star Wars Death Pillow from Ravelry and this coupon from Michaels Stores: (50% Off Any One Regular Price Item) makes me want to take a trip and get some supplies.

I started the project last night but will be frogging it and starting again. I used size 19 needles but the stitches are way too loose. I am going to use a size “N” crochet hook instead for a tighter stitch and see how that moves me. There are so many colors so I just started with green and will randomly pick from the basket as I go.

What are you working on today?
