Stashes, collections, hoards, arsenals…
Let’s face it – as a crocheter or knitter, we could all use a good stash busting session once in a while.
After we finish our latest projects, we tend to have a lot of small, little balls of leftover yarn that, for the life of us, we can’t find anything to use them for.
While I do like the charm of a stash buster afghan, I already have one! A few years ago I made a large granny square blanket which is now taking up space in our storage room (since we have no space in the hall closet). So, I don’t really want to make another one unless I plan on giving it to someone else. Although, a stash busting baby blanket could be useful… but I’ve already made two baby blankets recently!
Today’s mission was to find some stash busting patterns to use up all (or most) of those pesky little yarn balls taking up space in our…um… stashes. What better way to do some spring cleaning than to clean out that extra yarn? You know… to make space for your new yarn.
I kid. I kid.
Or do I?
I did a little search on Bing to find some stash busting inspiration and then moved onto Pinterest. I hope these give you some good ideas to use up all of those precious materials!

And don’t forget – you can always make an amigurumi with random colors. It makes them colorful and fun!
