It is hard to believe that one quarter of 2017 is already behind us! For readers in the northern hemisphere, it’s time to gear up for warmer weather and sunshine, and shed all of the extraneous yarn and supplies that kept you warm all winter long. But regardless of your location, now is a great time to make a commitment to destash! Read this post and make a plan to get rid of the supplies that have long plagued you and get your space ready for creativity.

Before we begin, let’s take a moment to reflect on why we need to destash this spring in the first place. Years ago, I asked What’s in Your Stash? and you answered. Ask yourself that question now. For some of us, it could mean a lot. And, yes. A crochet stash could be too large: case in point. Yet, we can stash down! And here’s a foolproof plan to do so.

Sometimes it can be hard to part with the luscious yarn, so luckily I’ve rounded up a bunch of patterns designed to eat up yarn. You can always use up yarn more quickly by doubling it all up! Don’t forget you can share with friends and arrange a crochet giving circle.

When you’ve finally gotten all of the extraneous supplies taken care of, you can give your space a good scrub down with these spring cleaning crochet tips. And then, to maintain your new, clearer space, use these tips to organize your crochet stash.

So what about you, my friends? What are you looking to destash this spring? How are you planning to do it? Please leave your thoughts, ideas and questions in the comment section below.
