#knitchat 12/9 Topic: Busting that Stash

Now I’m going to take that old piece of advice that you stick to in polite convesations… whatever the subject… do not mention “Size.” Thus we will not be talking about the “size”…of our stashes ;).  Instead, the aim of this discussion is to help us all come up with ideas for using excess yarn. It’s always fun to gab about yarn isn’t it?

Questions for 12/9’s #knitchat:

Q1) Introductions: Who are you? Where do you hail from? Ravelry ID?

Q2) Tell us your favorite stashbusting story? Did you get rid of excess yarn or repurpose yarn for another project? Did you donate it?

Q3) Do you have an suggestions for what to do with tiny bits? >25 yards? Excess sock yarn?

Q4) What is your favorite regular stashbusting project?  Is there a pattern?

Q5) Any non-knitting or crochet related things we can do with yarn? Both real and imaginative/fanciful answers are okay?

Q6) Ideas for upcoming #knitchat topics?

#knitchat logistics:

Where: Twitter (follow the #knitchat hashtag)

When: December 9nd. 5 PM PST/8 PM EST (1 hour)

Who: Me you and other Twitter Knitters/Crocheters & Fibercrafters

How: Need a primer on Twitter Chat… check this out: What does this Twitter chat thing look like?

Notice I added an extra question and that’s what are some topics you’d be interested in learning more about (or maybe venting like say about complicated lace or just lace in general)?  Its nice to have the discussion partially generated by the community and I’m sure you all have a lot to talk about… when it comes to fiber.

Some ideas for topics I’ve come up with are:

  • All about gauge and weight
  • Needles (what works for you & what doesn’t, etc., kinds of needles)
  • What’s the strangest thing you’ve done while knitting?
  • More Ravelry use tips and discussion
