Stash down challenge 2012: Day 7

After some unanticipated errands this morning, the focus of my stash down efforts today were twofold.

First, I wanted to finish the six, six-inch granny squares I will be contributing to a community crochet project “Granny Squares for Sandy.”

I had already made three squares:

crochetbug, crochet square, granny square, multicolor crochet, crochet swap, scrap yarn
Three six inch granny squares for a community granny square project

and wanted to bring the total to an even half-dozen. Unconvinced that the “scrap” granny in the center of the above photo worked (from a visual standpoint), I made four more of the solid center, variegated border granny squares:

crochetbug, crochet square, granny square, multicolor crochet, crochet swap, scrap yarn
Four more six-inch granny squares for a community crochet project

with the hope that they would better coordinate with the two I had already made, and bring the total number of squares I had ready to send to Rhode Island to six:

crochetbug, crochet square, granny square, multicolor crochet, crochet swap, scrap yarn
Half a dozen six inch granny squares ready for Rhode Island

With those squares done, I was able to turn my attention to my second goal of the day: making the pieces necessary to decorate my mother’s kitchen window with Sarah London’s Hawaiian flowers.

I am not yet certain how I will arrange these motifs or how many I will need to complete this project, but today I finished two nearly completed flowers:

crochetbug, crochet flowers, sarah london, free crochet flower pattern, free pattern, free crochet pattern
Two new Hawaiian flowers to be

which, when added to the three that I had already made, gave me five:

crochetbug, crochet flowers, sarah london, free crochet flower pattern, free pattern, free crochet pattern
Five Hawaiian flowers to be

I enjoy about the stash down challenge, and one aspect of the challenge that I enjoy most is that the focus is solely on using what is in my stash, and that forces me to think about the materials I have in a new light.

Tomorrow I will continue with my quest to use what I have to bring order to my crochet life, and with any luck (and a lot of effort), I might just make some measurable progress.
