January is a month to take stock and we don’t mean taking a long hard look at your life, but reminding yourself of what you have in your stash – much more fun.  So, dive under the bed, scrabble down the back of the sofa and take a trip up to the loft.  We think you’ll be surprised at the gems that you will uncover and the joy of squidging balls is not to be underestimated.

We have put together some of our favourite stash busting projects to inspire you.

If you find yourself with some odd or part balls of DK why not try the zig zag hat and mitts using Highland Heathers free on our website?

Or these gorgeous accessories also in Highland Heathers.

If you find you have the motherload of yarn, Blogstar Jane Crowfoot has some wonderful blankets like Persian Tiles or Mystical Lanterns for you to try.  

Fancy making some toys or fun amigurumi’s?  Then Blogstar Emma Varnam has plenty of inspiration.

Or how about our Granny Hexagon cardi from last winter?  You can make it in as many colours as you like.  It uses DK with a 5mm hook.

Do you have a ball or two of sock yarn?  It’s not just for the feet, you know.  How about some mitts, a hat or a baby cardi all free on our website.

If you discover some Super Chunky looking, how about these accessories? A lovely cosy scarf and fake roll neck.  Ours are made in Merry Go Round XL

Right, we’re off to go and marvel at all the yarn we have in our stash.
