Stashbusting Sunday: Granny Baskets and Candle Jars

On Thursday, I came across a guest post on This Little Street for mini-granny square crochet baskets and knew I wanted to make one right away.  I usually stick with 30 minute projects and this is definitely not that, but it still works up fairly quickly.  
 Basket number one filled with cotton yarn was made on Friday.
And basket number two was finished yesterday.

 For a change of pace, I then used some of the thin cotton yarn to crochet covers for Yankee Candle jars.  
 A great little recycling projects.
Next up, a gift bag.  Always something on the hook.
.
Visit Linda for more stashbusting projects.
Best wishes,
