Knitting and crochet update
My stash busting is continuing slowly but steadily. I've just finished crocheting 4 small and 2 large tea cosies. That used up some of the left over acrylic yarn from The Year of the Blankets. I've also cast on a sweater (for me) to use the pack of Montana that I bought in a sale ages ago.

The next crochet project will be some pot-holders to replace the ones I scorched. :(

Congrats on the stash busting. I surely need to do some of that. I've got so many half skeins and odd lots, it's ridiculous.

I bought a lot of yarn a few years ago when I was travelling up each week to visit my elderly dad. There was a huge (and I mean huge!) wool and fabric store a few miles further on. Also, at that time I thought I might try to make some money by crocheting things to sell. Then, unexpectedly, I got some part-time teaching, so that idea fell by the wayside, but of course I'd stocked up on so much yarn that it's taken quite a while to reduce and it still needs reducing further.
