I sorted my Ravelry yarn stash inventory by lowest yardage, so I ended up with small/partial skeins. Here is a screen shot of the first 28 entries. I would like to use up these 28 balls/skeins of yarn in September.
|Yarn is gathered from a dozen different totes... 2.5 pounds to use up!|
Here are my ideas so far...
|Four long-tail catnip balls, done.|
(used it to make a cowl, but need to put a button on before I can take pictures)
3. Starabella Yarn - see #2
|Ombre #7 - Used up!|
8. Whirlagig - not sure - maybe a Joy doll from the movie Inside Out?
|4, 9 & 10... knocked out three numbers in one project!|
11. Black Thick & Quick - Hair for a Gonk doll
12. Red Heart Classic - small stuffed animal
13, 14, 15 - Moda Dea fun fur - hedgehogs!
17 Fun Fur mixed with bulky - Cookie Monster cat hats
18 Red Sport yarn - and 20 white sport yarn - Pokemon Go Balls
21 & 22 - more fun fur - more hedgehogs?
|Almost finished off the green yarn (#21)|
24 & 25 - bulky yarn, blue & black - airplane? knit beanie? gonk hair?
Used one skein to make a belt. Used half of another skein to make a baby hat (which cannot be put online until after a 9/17 baby shower)
|Used up gray yarn for a catnip mouse and hair on Gnome #3 in this pic.|
|Doubled the sport yarn to make this hedgehog. Used up half a skein of fun fur, too!|
28 - black bulky yarn - gonk hair
I won't necessarily do them in that order... just as the inspiration arises! I will be updating here as I complete projects ! September also marks the beginning of my craft shows (2 in September, 4 in October, 2 in November), so custom orders may compete with challenge projects for my crafting time!
I used 18 of the 28 yarns shown. I got some custom orders that kept me busy! This dragon kept me busy for about two weeks, but seeing how happy the customer was with him made it all worth it! Now, on to girly-girl airplanes, catnip mice, penguin mittens, and a mermaid tail!
