Overview

There’s no such thing as too much yarn.
 
As renowned knitwear designer Melissa Leapman knows all too well, every knitter has a stash of yarn that they just can’t bear to part with: the one or two extra balls of yarn bought “just in case,” or the bits and pieces leftover from completed projects.

Stashbuster Knits gives you the absolute best way to use—and enjoy—your treasured yarn collection guilt free. Leapman offers valuable step-by-step guidance on organizing and shopping your stash to inspire creative new knitting ideas and color combinations. Then she gives you 21 ingenious projects for men, women, children, and home that are designed so no one will ever guess they were made from odds and ends.

Included are projects both large and small, from a glorious Fair Isle sweater for your favorite guy to a chic little scarf made with a Magic Ball. Each yarn weight has its own chapter, from super fine to super bulky, ensuring that knitters will find a way to use every piece of stored-up yarn. Filled with tips and hints on customizing projects and ideas to use even the tiniest bits of yarn, Leapman’s Stashbuster Knits will help transform your beloved stash into projects you’ll love even more.
 
So dive into your closets, dig into your bins, rifle through your drawers, and bring your precious yarn out of hiding. Let’s begin putting that stash to good use!

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"With 11 published books, Melissa is a very well-known and respected designer in the knitting world." --Love of Knitting Magazine
Library Journal
If you knit, you likely have a stash that includes small amounts of leftover yarn along with yarn purchased without a specific project in mind. In her latest book, popular knitwear designer Leapman (Mastering Color Knitting) combines an interesting selection of projects with tips for organizing, storing, and cataloging yarn; advice on color selection; and brief descriptions of common knitting techniques. The projects—for accessories, garments, and home decor—are organized by yarn weight, and most are accessible to knitters of all skill levels. Leapman's books never disappoint, and this one is no exception—the information is excellent and the projects are attractive.

    There is hope for us !

    Loved reading the first couple of chapters to the book. Ms. Leapman can really sympathize with yarn hoarders like me. The ones that cant help purchasing that 1 ball of really beautiful yarn. This book addresses all my questions. What to do with my beloved stash of odd amounts of yarn, in different textures and colors. She explains how to bring together different colors in the same garment, and she does it in a friendly and comfortable manner.
