I'll join in! I have a huge amount of yarn. Like six or seven of those big plastic bins with lids! In fact if I buy some more, I feel so bad I don't let my husband see me bringing it in!

Do we get some points if we give some of the stash to charity?

I'm going to use my stash up makeing preemie and chemo hats for charity. The little hats are great, you can use any kind of yarn, and they knit up so fast I make one or two as a rest in between my bigger projects so I feel like I accomplished something!

Lord I could warm a lot of heads this way! I also just volunteered at a local middle school to help the teacher teach tweens how to crochet, I believe they want me to start in February. They need practice yarn so I will probably give them some too!

Yes, gifting some of your Stash Yarn to charity (or your local knitting club, etc.) counts! Why so? Because it diminshes the size of YOUR STASH!

I don't know how to create an icon or avatar for us Stashies. Does anyone else?

Well, I earned my first Stash Credits this weekend! Finished that basketweave, buttercup yellow MicroSpun baby blanket! And, whilst I was on my MicroSpun roll...I knit 4 MicroSpun dishcloths too! Three in buttercup, 1 in red...and will continue with the dishcloths til my MicroSpun is El-Gonno!

I took digital photos of the baby blankets and dishcloths...but unfortunately, I don't know how to place photographs into this forum...but, somebody must know. There are photos inserted into certain threads on this website.

If anyone wants my simple directions for the basketweave dishcloth...please email me, and I will send the directions asap! It is 25 stitches wide, 38 rows tall, with size 10.5 needle using double strand MicroSpun. The needle size can be adjusted depending on the Stash Yarn used, of course. My dishcloths turned out perfect...nice squares, not too big, not too small!

Hi ArtLady,

Just go to your profile and upload your photo .. thing is you have to resize it so its no more than 100 x 100 and a small number of megapixels .. if you have a program that resizes you are all set .. it will then just appear every time you post .. you can change it as you want to .. I wanted to resize one of my pics to put in but its higher than it is wide so it won't size to what I need without making my head look two feet wide.

To CarmenlBanez: Yes, it is quite A-OK for you to keep a prior commitment!

Someone asked: what is Stash Yarn? Let's loosley say: It is any and all yarn that you have in your possession upon joining the Stashies!

Reward Projects are knit with new yarn purchased after joining Stashies! One rule: the New Yarn cannot join ranks with the Stash Yarn. The New Yarn must be knit immediately. Otherwise, you are not diminishing your Stash, are you?

Clearly, some of us serious Stashies may knit many, many more Stash Projects than Reward Projects. Hopefully.

The point is: We want to motivate ourselves to USE all that previously purchased yarn! It is just so pointless to keep buying and buying at a greater rate than we could EVER knit! Some of us 'Serial StashieS' have even forgotten what we have in our Stash! Except to say, hundreds of dollars in yarn, no doubt! Sigh. Things are gonna change around here! Stay tuned!

This is THE YEAR OF THE STASH!

Ok, figured it out! Here is the MicroSpun dishcloth! It takes an hour, if that.

Cast on 25 stitches, 38 rows tall...double-strand MicroSpun, size 10.5 needles. Email me for the directions.

The RS is always Knit across. The patterning row is done from the WS.

I'm in. I started with a couple of weeks ago with the Knit From Your Stash 2007 on my blog.

I need to update it but so far I have finished 2 1/2 pairs of clogs and sold a ton of yarn. To celebrate I bought sock yarn from A Swell Yarn Shop.
