Stash-Down Update

So, I've finished yet another project.

I made toeless socks. I'd been intrigued by the idea, and I have found them to be pretty much the best thing ever. I love knitting worsted weight socks because they go so quickly. I love toeless socks because I love flip flops. All of these things are wonderful. I love the color green I used. Check out some pictures, and then the details:

Pattern: Pedicure Socks from Knitty
Yarn: Cascade 220 in a gorgeous apple sort of green that's been in my stash since who knows when
Needles: US7 dpns

Took about two days to complete both of them. I tested them out by going to the mailbox a little while ago. They're totally great, especially on summer days like today, when it rained for eight hours and is about 20 degrees cooler than it has been the past few weeks.

Also, wanted to show my stashbusting progress:
The Baby blanket used 1 whole skein of cream colored baby soft and about half a skein each of blue and green. That's a total of 2 skeins.
The homespun hat used almost every bit of the skein of homespun. That makes three so far.
The quant used almost a whole skein of SWS. We're up to 4.
This beautiful specimen of footwear used about 75% of a skein, and I like to round up. 5 skeins!!

5 skeins is small when looking at it as a percentage of my stash, but still, it's a start. I'm in the mood to make a bag. I'm scouring the rav right now to find something inspiring.
