Summer Stitching Stash Blast #16 {link-up}

This is week sixteen, the final week, of the Summer Stitching Stash Blast.

In my usual fashion, last week I overestimated how much time I would have to devote to my knitting. I was unable to complete two scarves, but I did finish one. I took two scarves that I never wore and made them into a circle scarf that I think I will wear this winter with my winter coat. Both scarves were knit with Knit Picks Stroll Hand Painted Sock Yarn. I had a bit of both skeins left, so I knit borders on the original scarves and then stitched both ends together. All the yarn that I had left is in the above picture. I think that is a stash win! The two original scarves can be viewed on my Ravelry project page

I think this summer's stash blast was a success. I completed many projects (pictured below) and made progress on four additional projects not shown. Currently, I have two knitting projects on needles, and four cross-stitch projects in progress. 

Now my stash is much smaller, but soon if will be even smaller. I have gathered a large cardboard box full of yarn from my stash to donate to the daughter of a good friend. That will leave me with enough yarn for seven planned projects. I feel like a weight has been lifted from me, and I am excited to start and finish those projects. Maybe I will even start updating my Ravelry page again! 

What are you working on currently? Have you finished any projects recently? Tell me about them in the comments or link-up a blog post below!
