This could turn out either really awesome or really bad.

scrappy

I spent over an hour the other night organizing all of my knit-wares and filled a bag with all sorts of scrap yarn that I have no idea what I'll ever do with but I keep them anyway. I had actually been planning to finally knit myself some fingerless gloves (you know I've made so many for everyone else but myself?) and I was going to just use random mis-matched fibers but then I found myself shopping online for new clothes for Ivy and not finding any dresses I really liked so maybe I'll just have to make my own. I'm only using scrap yarns, pulling from the bag by chance, with some of the strands not even long enough for one row. But I think it will give it a cool effect. Or it could turn out looking like throw up.

You'll know how it turns out if I end up posting a photo or not.

  8. Exciting!! My Oma used to knit socks out of her scrap yarns, and those were always my favourites. Can't wait to see the final product. It makes me wish I could knit!!

  14. I love the analogy of making something beautiful out of the leftovers...weaving together a new creation out of yarn originally intended for a different purpose. I'm sure the end product is going to be gorgeous, especially on your little lady.
