Stash-Buster January Review

The first month of the stash-buster challenge is over and Ana and I have been overwhelmed by your enthusiasm, as I write this there are 77 of us stash-busting so far! Thank you to everyone who has joined us and I hope you will continue to enjoy it as much as I know we will. 
You have all got off to a great start and thank you for sharing your stashes with us here are some of them can you spot yours?

That Sweet Little Something


Stash buster projects 3 & 4

I couldn't resist, another little baby dress.


For this I used a size 4 mm hook and although it was supposed to be Dk it was quite fine for Dk weight, so this turned out a little smaller than the last one, large enough for a preemie baby or even a doll.




and a cute little hat to finish it off



I will share the little hat pattern with you soon, I have been using the scraps of yarn that were left over to make these little hats there are more to come along with the pattern.

For the Dress
It took 75g of yarn
Pattern here

For the hat.. 21g



I have been working on my Rockman CAL afghan and have managed to do 3 strips which weigh 63g so my stash-busting total is a mere 352g for January not nearly as good as some of you but I promise to do better next month. :)

See you all on Thursday for a round up of all your stash busting projects and totals.

The Monday Smile


Good Morning everyone I'm so happy that the rain has washed all the snow away, I thought it was going to be with us for ever, we even got a glimpse of the sun yesterday.  I hope last week was a good one for you.
This week I will be showing you a sweet little something I have just finished making, I hope to have a new pattern for you and I'm looking forward to publishing my first Stash-buster review on Thursday, so if you want to see what your stash busting friends have been up to it's one not to miss.  

Don't forget to publish your finished projects for this month by Wednesday and weigh everything you have made if you want me to keep a count of how much stash you have busted.
Ana has done her first review today so do visit  lanas de ana. 


Looks like it's going to be a busy week! here's something to keep you smiling....

Just to let you know 
I'm thinking of you today.
No matter what situations life throws at you..... 

No matter how long and treacherous your journey may seem.. 
Remember there is a light at the end of the tunnel.






Have a great day and remember to give thanks.....




                           Cats are so dramatic! 



                  

                                       
 this way                     and                             that
