Dedicating my Stash, Part 3

afghan yarns picThe variegated yarns in this picture will be used to make throws. They were given to me by a friend who wanted them put to good use. The yarns on the right are being used to make a ribbons and bows bathroom set for my mom. I’ve got a ways to go on that one.

I don’t think I will need all the off-white yarn, so it will probably be used to make stripes for one of the variegated yarn throws.

For the darker navy blue/burgundy one, I intend to make sort of a “rainbow stripe” throw based on the colors used in it, ranging from light to dark, with rows of the variegated in between. That will be after I get a bunch of knitting and the bathroom crochet project done.

For the other more floral-type color, I intend to use a sort of patchwork blocks style to make a throw from it, a la Mason-Dixon Knitting. They have a gorgeous throw in there that’s almost log cabin quilt style. This isn’t my favorite color, but I could live with it. Maybe I’ll embroider some flowers on the throw when I make it, and do some z-style embroidery along the edges to resemble a quilt that much more.

miscellaneous yarnsThese yarns (from left to right, back row) are being used for the following: zig zag purse or confectionary tank; baby georgia knitted dress; the blue mixed cotton yarn is probably going to be a dish rag or neck wrap; the little burgundy thing is a mother earth shawl that I am still considering frogging and dropping out of my queue. I just don’t have the enthusiasm for it that I had when it was still a mystery.

In the front are two white yarns that are crochet threads. One is a skinny one used for doilies, and the bigger one on the left is more like rope, that I plan to make a round wheat-like doily out of eventually. I need to go dig up my pattern book for it.
