Austen may have startitis, but I've got a nasty case of stashitis. A quick cleanup of my office/craft room at home revealed several baskets and bags stuffed with yarn. Then I took a look at the yarn basket in my living room and discovered another huge pile. Then a few smaller piles tucked into other baskets and on shelves. Yikes! Last weekend, my mom and I hit an anniversary sale at a huge yarn store. While the deals were amazing and the company was excellent (hi, Mom!), all I could think of was the growing tower of fibre threatening to take over my life. So I plunked down the cash for a single pretty skein of camellia pink sock yarn and a set of DPNs I needed and headed for the door. So, crafty friends, here's where you come in. What are your favourite stash-busting patterns for small amounts of yarn? I have lots of sock-weight and worsted wool, but only one or two skeins apiece in most cases. I like to knit baby sweaters for my friends' adorable kids, and I love hats, mitts and scarves. What else do you typically make with your odds and ends?
