Stash Use Up Challenge for 2021

I am combining my stash challenges into one. Still lots to use up in both yarn, and fabric. I plan on continuing this challenge until have gotten both stashes under control.

I am actually looking at knitting some pet coats/sweaters this year and perhaps trying to sell them next fall. We shall see. I may even add a few human articles that no one else who sells their knitting has thought of.

So, late yesterday I pulled the fabric (using those 4" squares I seem to collect) to make the cover for Hubby's table and for his phone case. I will hopefully be working on at least one of those today.

I also pulled yarn to make another small poncho for myself, and will be looking at patterns for pet coats and sweaters today.

The leftover yarn from the temperature blanket for this year is in the corner and will be used to start another. This one from the year we were married. Should be interesting and completed much faster as I don't have to wait to see what the high temperature is for the day. I do have a feeling that another one will need to be fashioned as well. You actually use very little in the way of yarn up when making these.

I believe in trying - nobody ever accomplished anything without trying. :-)

So far I have used up a ball of yarn making the poncho (they call it an evening poncho) and am working on another.

I also used up squares making the table covering for Hubby and will be using up another remnant of flannelette for backing of the covering. I am thinking of making him matching coasters to use up even more of those squares.
