Emergency Stash Trashing
Yesterday I got placed in a very awkward position due to an unexpected and more-extravagant-than-necessary Christmas gift. I don't want to go into details, but basically everyone that I go to school with has been put in an uncomfortable gift situation by one person in our class and none of us really know what to do about it.
Fortunately though my yarn stash is hopefully saving me I think, or rather I hope.
I came home and dug around and found some nice Homespun yarn from a project I long ago abandoned that needed to be repurposed. After a quick search on Ravelry I found this pattern and was up and crocheting as soon as I got everything ripped out.
Mine was worked with 2 strands of yarn on a 10.0mm hook and I believe I did one extra row, but other than that I followed the pattern to the letter.
This holiday season I am thankful for my ever-providing stash, bulky yarn, and large hooks. What about you?
