Here is some wise use of those odd bits of yarn that you just cannot bring yourself to throw away! Just the thought of throwing away little scraps of leftover yarn makes me cringe! I wind up those little bits into balls and store them in a basket.
Just look at what you can get with those scraps! Yes, I know, another scarf. Can't help it...what can I say...I LOVE scarves. They are like little works of art!! The fun thing is that I can look at each yarn and remember what it is leftover from!! Kind of like scrap quilts our grandmothers used to make with leftover fabric and recycled clothing.
Is anyone up for a scrappy challenge?? If you're game, here's what you do.
Use your scraps in a scarf. It can be knit or crochet. The catch, you cannot use the same yarn in the scarf twice. When you finish, send me a picture with a little description of your scarf. Email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will feature each scarf on my blog with a link to your blog!
Now we need to set a time it's due by. How about November 15th?
I thought this would be a great way to get some inspiration for all of use up those scraps!
Now, I am out of here for the weekend. I am going to Asheville with some knitting buddies to go to SAFF! The Southern Animal Fiber Fair. I cannot wait to check out all that handspun, hand dyed yarn! And add some of your girlfriends in the mix, it's even better!!!
