Granny Stripe Afghan - Stash Buster Project

I finished the Granny Stripe Afghan this morning.
 Big C is holding it up for a complete photo of it.
He's 6 foot 2 inches tall, so it's a good sized afghan.
 It looks lovely on the back the sectional sofa.
 This is the bin of yarn that I started out with.
And this is what I have leftover.
Not bad.
I ended up using:
1 skein of Cafe Latte
1 skein of Ranch Red
2 skeins of Coffee
almost a whole skein of Warm Brown
1 skein of Medium Thyme
half a skein of Dark Sage
almost all of the Carrot (I had about 1/3 of a skein)
1 skein plus 3/4 of a huge skein of Soft White
and about 1/4 or more of the Mystery Green skein of yarn
All of this yarn is Red Heart Super Saver and it was in my yarn stash.
This is a total Stash Buster Project!  :)


  1. Congratulations, Shelly! It looks perfect on the sofa, next to the 2 cushions.
    Are you already considering what you will do with the stash form the stash? It is endless...but fun ;-)

    1. Thanks! Yes, I've been considering my options for using up more of the stash....and I just added another project to my blog that I whipped up today with some of the leftover yarn. I've got another project in my head as well. I just need to whip it up as well. :) I totally love this Stash Buster Challenge!

  2. Your stripe afghan is very pretty. Hugs Judy
