January WIPs

This year I have joined to Ana’s and Linda’s  „Stashbuster Challange 2013”.
So time to show you my stash. Well I don’t have an impressively great stash, because mostly I buy yarn for a running project and in december I ate lot of yarn. Now I am having approx. 1 kg yarn in various type, color, thickness. 

I am storing the most of my stash in this big box organized into bags, but I am planning to reorganize it in a bigger space.

Balance of my finished projects in January: 

- knitting: 3 earwarmers (post comes on Friday, the pattern is already available in my shop)

- crochet: 4 more purses (the whole collection is available in my shop):  

Running projects:

I am working on a new handbag from months! It might seem, that I already dislike it. But no, I don't! I am just bad at making things for myself. I hibernated  this project after I completed the front piece, but last week started to knit the other. Keep fingers acrossed for me :)
Once the bag will be finished, it will look like something like this: 

I will definitely share the pattern! It is not a quick knit, but this basketwave pattern is so pretty, I couldn’t miss!

I am working on more headband design. This time with cables! I LOVE cables!

And I have these two softies in progress. Remember this pictures of super adorable baby Lili? You might seen the owl she received from me for Christmas. Now I am making a few more to my shop. Here is another confession: I am bad at making things for my shop too, because I have a mum and mum-in-law, sister-in-lawa and lot of nieces, cousins... Compliments just melt my heart.. I must give them away...
This month I used up 248 meter yarns. 
(I installed the knit-meter and crochet-meter widgets on my sidebar.)

Wish you happy crafting!
