Stash Busting workshop

On the 16th Janaury we start our new programme of workshops, we will kick start these with a Stash Busting workshop. The aim of this workshop is to get you familiar with yarn weights, how to make the most of your stash, matching different yarns to patterns and design work, learning how to adapt patterns to suit your own ideas.

Whilst browsing the internet the other day, in a bid to banish a dose of post holiday boredom, I stumbled on a strange fact...There is actually an official date that is recognised as the most depressing day of the year! This year the momentous day is on the 24th of January, not long after our workshop, so we had a hunt round and picked out a couple of stash busting projects that are all super colourful and hopefully will ease the winter blues.

One blog that I have just started following is The laughingpurplegoldfish, and yes it was the name that caught my attention! Once I delved into the blog, I found some inspiring stash busting ideas, in particular check out the accidental hat -

or the scrap happy scarf -

 I hope they inspire you to try them out using your own stash. Follow the link below -

Happy stash busting to you all
