Fiber Arts Friday

Well, I’ve got quite a lot done this week. I decided to join a stash-busting group on Ravelry to encourage me to get rid of some (most) (all) my stashed yarn that was sitting about doing nothing. I know I don’t have a huge stash compared to some (*cough* Becky! *cough*) but it’s a space issue – smaller space, bigger problem!

And in order to get rid of some of the stuff that I’ve crocheted up already, I decided that whatever I make that isn’t for Christmas presents must go to charity. Combined with discovering a great pattern for a triangular scarf that can be as big as however much yarn you have, I got going. These two:

have gone to Seasalt for their Knit to Save the Bees charity drive. As my grandfather kept bees on our farm when I was growing up and the honey was AMAZING, I’m a big fan o’ the bee. Besides the whole if-they-die-out-so-will-we thing…

Another charity our church supports at Christmas is Operation Christmas Child. While I probably won’t be able to do full shoeboxes this year, some woolie additions might be welcome in others. This is the first of a few that will be going there:

Add to the fact that suddenly it’s a lot cooler outside, and I’ll probably be able to do more stash-busting by making a few things for myself. But so far, quite a productive few weeks!

Check out lots more fiber-y goodness on Alpaca Farm Girl’s blog – including a spider-silk tapestry! No, really!
