- single skeins of yarn (what was I thinking?)
- souvenir yarn ("grab and go")
- small balls of leftover yarn - too little to make anything, too much to throw away.
I thought I would take some of those odds and ends and knit up charity scarves. I cast on 250 stitches on size US 10 needles that took forever. It just about put me to sleep. Then I started knitting long rows of garter stitch. Again, it just about put me to sleep. I was shooting for 4" wide by 60" long and ended with 3.75" by 72". Good enough, I had to stop.

There had to be another way to use up the scraps. A quicker less boring way.
I dusted off my 10" Cricket Loom -it's been awhile- and gathered all the bits and bobs of yarn: acrylic, alpaca, cotton, lambs wool, merino wool, mohair (looking at you Souvenir yarn), silk blends, and various other yarn blends.

I love how the woven scarf turned out and I'm making a wee bit of progress using up the stash, inch by inch. Good thing too since I just received another box of yarn and I'm embarrassed that it was so heavy and huge. I mean humongous! SABLE here I come.
