This was a bit of a problem as I didn't actually having anything to knit with other than stash.
So.....I started a stash-busting scarf.
It is nearly double the length now, Youngest has already wrapped it around his neck and made smiley mmmm mmmm noises - ah ha! A chrimbly pressie me thinks :)
Excuse me, off to knit a little more before going off to bed - going to try to pre-empt any work angst!!
