They are so much fun to knit, because I am using all sorts of scrap yarn in my stash. Lots of little bits — that are too small to make anything with — are combined in this clever pattern. (On Ravelry, it’s the free Scrap-happy Celebration Hat pattern by Cosette Cornelius-Bates.) I am really enjoying looking at my bag of scrap yarn and figuring out color combinations that work. It’s a challenge! It’s making lemonade out of lemons in the best way. My husband, who is quite visual, helps me pick out some of the combinations.
I’m also enjoying knitting these adorable little puffy hearts — also for Knitwell Knits Back — and entirely knit from scrap yarn. (On Ravelry, it’s the free Full Hearts pattern by Tatyana Grigoryan.)
Take a look at your stash (and your lemons) and see what you can make! If you are interested in participating in Knitwell Knits Back, send an email to email@example.com. Stay safe and wash your hands!
