Operation stash-bust!

So I am currently working on busting my stash of yarn so that I can clear some space (ahem......who am I kidding, it is so I can buy more obvs!) Currently my yarn is stuffed into a cupboard and to give you an idea of how much there is, you have to properly lean against the door and slam it shut. My husband made the comparison to a scene from The Shining, the one where the lift doors open and blood spills out, except in my case it is yarn. I can kinda reluctantly see his point.

The key to stash busting, when you have a lot of yarn like I do to get through, is quick and easy wins so my current idea was this gorgeous technicolour dream blanket of many colours:-

So this is 2 pieces of double knit yarn crocheted together to make a giant granny square with a lovely chunky 7mm hook, changing the yarn as you go. I decided my colour changes would be completely random and so far I am absolutely loving the colour
journey. It is keeping my interest as I look forward to the next colour combination. I am already planning my next one!

I hope you like it, I will post a completed picture when I am done!

Happy hooking
