Well, part of the reason I have not been blogging lately is that I got a knitting machine and I have been unsuccessfully trying to use it to work down my stash. Needless to say, we did NOT get along and it was returned to the merchant on Monday. The same day the book Stashbuster Knits by Melissa Leapman landed on my doorstep.
I love it there are 21 projects to knit down this stash have built up and I think I have enough odds and ends to make each project at least once if not more!
There are also handy guides to help you combine colors and to use multiple strands of thinner yarns together to make up larger gauges thereby using up that stash yarn even faster!
So many of them just scream out KNIT ME!!! My favorite is the Puzzle Play blanket! A super colorful blanket made of puzzle pieces! Itâ€™s so colorful and fun.
The book is divided up into three sections by general weight of yarn, thin, medium and bulky so you can just go to your stash, pick out the appropriate weight yarn and go!
I can see some stash busting in my future and a cleaner leaner yarn closet as a result! Thank you Melissa Leapman for writing this book just for me so I can get cleaned up!!
