There are many ways to use up scrap yarn. I am going to share a few ways with you. I invite everyone to share your ideas in the comment section.

Maybe you have made an afghan and you end up with 2-3 extra skeins of yarn. That would be enough yarn to make a hat, slippers, scarf, potholder or granny squares. I usually wind up with a ball of yarn the size or an orange or smaller. Those sizes are ideal for making flowers or multi-color granny squares. I do have a crochet Flower Blog dedicated specifically to flowers and leaves and a Granny Square, Motif and Applique blog specifically for crochet granny squares, motifs and applique. The patterns on both blogs are ideal for scrap yarn.

    Teresa, I saw this in email this morning and was bowled over. Isn't it amazing? The thing I love most about crochet (right now!) is the wonderful way it forms curls, waves, branches and petals.

  3. Teresa,

    Out again walking my dog this morning I thought how I would love to make something like the above cabinet to display a series of the types of cactus that I see everyday.
    organ pipe cactus
    barrell cactus
    prickly pear
    sahuaro
    ocatillo
    agave

    etc etc.
    It can be done! However I will have to first figure out how to do it, and then find the time, and I wonder if my motivation will make it through these obstacles! Still if I can't really do it, at least I can dream and share the dream so here it is!!

    PS I am currently finishing my curly crochet scarf and then next I need to make a quick wrap for my holiday dressing. Then everything else.....

  4. Cynthia,
    The cactus are some great ideas. I have had the suggestion to create cactus before. Maybe it did come from you. I will keep it in mind and see if I can come up with something. I can imagine how they would look with some flowers.
