Stash Busting

Since I started reading about crochet on-line I've found a whole new vocabulary!
Stash is all the yarn I have.  And I have LOTS!
Lots of half balls, not quite enough to make anything and yet a bit too much to be added to my messy afghan project, (which is coming along slowly).

I've made myself a pact (mainly becasue I'm running out of storage room) that I won't buy any new yarn until I've used up some of the stuff I've got.  Hence there was the fancy yarns made into coffee plunger cosy's, and also in to scarves like this one:


And.... I've started to make a full sized granny square blanket! 
You'd have thought with my love of the granny square that I'd have made one ages ago, it's just that they are so BIG they need so much time, and yet if I ever want to buy yarn again I'm going to have to finish the squares.  I'm going for 6 x 7 to start with.   That's 42 squares, I've done 20 so far, almost half way there, and then it's the border and joining bit (phew!)
