Joy of Stash

The advantage to having a stash is that I can whip up little projects on a whim. :) For example, I couldn't justify buying Darth Tater, so I made my own little crochet version to hang on my tree next year:
crochet darth tater
The bonus is that Christmas ornaments never count as "clutter" for me. ;) Of course, the helmet comes off to reveal Anakin Skytater:
crochet anakin skytater
(Hmmm... I'm considering getting some of those Burger King plush toys to keep Darth Tater company... a little ewok and a jawa... maybe that ice monster and Chewy too.)

I also have another FO to report:
blue cotton socks
What can I say... they followed me to school, and there was a lunch time lecture. However, I'll get cracking on socka cream this weekend... just as soon as I finish the paper review. :P

Even though stash has its advantages, I do want to reduce my stash as much as possible... when my dad comes to pick me up next year, I *really* don't want to explain why I have so many boxes of yarn. ;)

Darth Tater rocks. Or taters. Whichever is more appropriate.

Love the lightsaber

I love the ornaments, that is so cool! That just cracked me up. You should crochet the whole posse, complete with R2D2, LOL.

And the socks are amazing.
