I have done a few simple crochet projects since I last posted, despite all my studying. A few beanies, a headband, a scarf... The most recent project is a snowflake garland that still isn't finished. I crochet one snowflake every time I take a break from reading.
Now, what I really wanted to talk about today is leftover yarn. When I got home this afternoon, I started cleaning up and sorting out all the yarn I had scattered around our apartment, and putting it all in one place. My stash is pretty small compared to some, but turns out I've got more than I thought! I immediately got annoyed by all the little bits and ends, half-skeins and general leftovers from previous projects. I have no idea what to do with those! I threw in some old, but whole skeins of baby merino in hideous colours (leftovers from a baby blanket my mom made some years ago), the pile of "unwanted" or "useless" yarn was this big:
By the way, the rest of my stash, the yarn I don't consider to be leftovers, all fit in this one box. (running shoes european size 42, US size 7 for size comparison)
I don't know if that's good, or kind of sad. Haha. I see so many people posting pictures of shelves and rooms filled with yarn. How much space does your yarn take up?
How do you make use of your scraps and leftovers? I'd love to hear some ideas :)
