Knitting Down The Stash Big Time

For the past few weeks I have been knitting down my fairly large stash of Caron Simply Soft.  Using US8 needles CO 41 sts knitting 80 rows 3x per panel then sewing 3 panels together before picking up sts knitting until six rows before BO. Doing this all around to make boarder. These nine patch blankets work up pretty quickly. Looks like I have four or five more to do before this stash will be knit down enough. The remnant yarn will be knitted into strips to make woven balls to donate to Relief Share so that as much yarn as possible is utilized.
