Sunday Stash Update #2

Hello again everyone!

Sadly, I did not get much crocheting done this week at all, so I don't really have anything to show you. I can say that:

1. my blanket is a couple inches bigger
2. one of my washcloths is completely weaved in and ready to be tested
3. my yellow washcloth with the baubles has all its stitches and is half weaved in (I had a lot of ends there)
4. I'm starting on a crochet hook holder.

I'm really excited for the hook holder. I have taken inspiration from two different sources, and I'll be combining them to make something that I think will work well for me. I'll be using my stashed Sugar 'n Cream yarn for this one, but in the future I'm going to make it out of a more... elegant yarn.

Here are the two holders that I really like:

The one from OMG! Heart is just beautiful in my opinion. It's also felted crochet, and I have no idea how I feel about that because I don't know anything about it - yet.

The one from klubka is brilliant with all its different little holders and pouches. I'm definitely going to incorporate the swatch for holding needles, as I can't seem to keep track of my loose containers of needles.

So that's it for my update this week. Not terribly exciting just yet, but if you need more, go check out the other bloggers participating in the Stash-Busting Challenge by just following that link on my sidebar! Here are just three blogs that I have been enjoying so far:

Random Wooliness - Ali's got some pretty scarves going on there!
Apple Blossom Dreams - Dishcloths!
Petals to Picots - There are some cute Valentine's projects to look at!


  1. I think we all have slender weeks Ashley! Your washcloths looked great - shame about all those pesky ends that take up valuable hooking time!
    The hook holders look cool - its something always in the back of my mind to do. Hopefully you can customise yours so you have what works for you to hand!
    Although I make felt, I have yet to felt my crochet but I plan to soon....I have felted knitting in the washing machine and smaller knitted projects by hand..there's lots of advice out there in cyberspace!
    Have fun this week!

    1. Yeah we do all have our slow weeks, that's true. Mine is partly just procrastination as I really, really hate weaving in ends. But they are almost done, so that's good.

      Oh if you felt your crochet I hope you blog about it! As I said, I don't know anything that's involved, so it would be interesting to read about.

      And good luck to you on the second month of Stash Busting!

  2. Welcome to the Challenge, Ashley! Those hook holders look amazing. Can´t wait to see your version...

    1. Thanks for the welcome! You seem to be cutting through your stash pretty quickly. ;)
