April Challenge - 100g Stash Challenge
Our Wednesday and Friday Virtual Craft and Chatter sessions have been a great way to keep in touch and preserve our sanity during this lockdown period. During April we challenged ourselves to do something with our stash. The idea was to take 100g of any kind of yarn we happened to already have in our homes and make something with it - whether knitted, crocheted, woven, pompomed - anything at all!
Deb started off with a pile of 4ply leftovers and turned them into a cowl.

She then took another bunch of smaller scraps and started making granny squares. This turned out to create quite an obsession since these quick little squares made the leftover sock yarn really sing. 200g later she ran out of scraps and has a stack of over 40 squares. These are now waiting for some more socks to be finished. One day they might make a blanket or maybe even a funky garment.
Trish made a pair of socks (below), as did Irena, who also made a beautiful shawl. Sandy worked on a headband and Claire made two cowls:
As an impromptu challenge this was a fun way to show our ingenuity and creativity. Why not share yours with us on social media? Use hashtags #100gstashchallenge and #crateslockdown
