Join us this week as we discuss the merits of stash busting! Inside every knitter is a ceaseless passion for yarn that covets every bright, soft and lovely hank and ball and cake. Our actual productivity can never hope to pace this crafty cupidity, and the distance between these two becomes the stash. To help you harvest your handy horde, first I sit down with Knit Picks' new graphic designer Lee Meredith, to get her expert insight into getting the most out of your stash. After that, Stacey and Hannah discuss our newest collection Cute & Cozy Stashbusters, with plenty of patterns to tame your twisted trove of worsted wonders.

I have no less than 5 friends having babies by the end of 2014: my pediatrician, my daughter's best friend's mom, my sister...one friend is even having twins! I have to knit every new baby I know something, too. I consider it a good luck charm. With two babes of my own, time is short so I'm always in need of a go-to baby knit.

I decided this is year to get my yarn stash under control. I have been pretty good the last year or so with using my stash for projects but then suddenly, several new skeins of yarn will find their way into my yarn closet and my bins will be overflowing again. A lot of my stash ends up being single skeins - yarn leftover from projects or a skein I just really needed to buy because it was so pretty. So when we came up with the idea of our Under 100 Collections, I was so excited - 40 patterns that all use under 100 grams of yarn!

So, as I've mentioned before that I have an incredible amount of lace weight yarn just lurking around in the shadows of my yarn stash. Everyone else in the office seems to have learned their lesson (aka that they just won't ever get around to knitting with lace weight yarn) so they steer well clear of it whenever a stray skein winds up in the office. I, on the other hand am more than happy to snap each and every one of them up and take them home with me. Well... almost anything, and by anything I mean just the blues! This means that I'm always prowling Ravelry, our own pattern section and all the available books in the office for lace weight patterns. ANYTHING to put this lovely, light yarn to good use. Eventually I found A. Westbrook's free crochet Lacy Feather and Fan pattern on Ravelry. I loved how open the pattern was, the simple two-row repeat and that I could really easily turn this into a cowl. SOLD!

All it took was one skein of Wool of the Andes Bulky in Stormy and a free afternoon and SCHIZZAM! I have a brand new pair of women's small/medium sized slippers! I used a size H crochet hook and Pierrot's Warm Slipper free pattern scrounged from my Ravelry queue to make these cozy little gems. This pattern wound up being about a women's 8.5 shoe size which is far and away too tiny for my big flippers, but they fit my mother perfectly.
