Here is my blanket, almost ready to go! The short edges (not in photo) are a "party mix" of stash, but the main part is this fun superwash chunky I got in 2008 at Stitches. More importantly, I have completely knitted through my stash, which has been my goal since Stitches.

Whoo hoo! Time to replenish . . . Where do I even begin?

Wow! Like the colors. What a fun yarn to work with.

You are so good to actually knit through your stash. I seem to be on the I'm-knitting-something-so-I-have-to-replenish-now-on-sale program of stash usage and management. You must be the epitome of self-control.

Have fun replenishing! There are still good buys online if your LYS is short on them.

Thanks for showing us.

This is gorgeous, and congratulations on creating a stash vaccum - like Becky I'd be quick to try to fill it!

Thanks for showing us the blanket! Fun colors! I received a HUGE bag of yarn from a LYS...the owner said someone gave it to her, and she doesn't knit with wool, so she gave it to me. I swear, this bag is like loaves & fishes! I've knit 2 blankets from it and it's still full! LOL. And the color combinations aren't exactly thrilling. But, never look a gift stash in the mouth, right?

The colors in this are so nice...reminds me of Indian Paintbrush flowers.

I'm in awe that you've knitted your stash, Tory. I tell myself that's what I'm going to do, but have yet to do that. And when a campaign starts, I do look through my stash, but if I have multiple skeins of 1 color, I want to keep them for a campaign that needs that many skeins (understand?) So...I'm usually buying new. I tell myself (& hubby) it's my way of helping the economy!
