End of April - Beginning of May

Hello! My April WIP Reduction Month was a success! I completed my goal projects. Yay! Now I'm ready to move onto my May stash busting projects (which have already been started). I am knitting a feather and fan baby afghan out of some white red heart soft yarn (their old stuff not their new stuff) and a cardigan for my daughter out of the same red heart yarn only in a different colour, and a crocheted stashghan, using up the scraps of Bernat soft bouclé I have laying around the house. My goal is to complete the baby blanket and cardigan by the end of May. I don't know if I'll have the stashghan done by then or not, but if I do that'll just be a bonus! :)

Mini Stashbuster

It's April, so I finally found the needles for my March stashbuster - I guess it'a my April stashbuster now!

But this is what I made a couple of days ago with some DB Cashmerino Chunky leftovers:

Ring Hat

March Stashbusting


March is done and dusted! It's knitted in Debbie Bliss Alpaca Silk and is a fantastic red colour,nothing like this miserable photo!
As an additional stashbuster, I finished some felted clogs.
Before, very boring but stash.




And after, a wonderful thing happened! (this is after the first wash, they went through another one and turned even more pink!)



My april stashbuster will be the the Flower Basket Shawl as part of the EvelynClarke Knitalong, out of Jamieson's Ultra, not old stash, only 5 months old, but still, stash.

This stashbusting has taken on more significance now that I've Flashed the stash! I had to do it in two posts, so much stuff!
You can look here and here!
