Waste knit, want knit.
I am always promising myself I’ll use up the odds and ends of leftover yarn in my stash before I start any new projects or buy any more yarn, but I have such a hard time stopping myself from buying once I get into a yarn store or see a new pattern I like.
For the last week though I’ve been hard at work actually making something from the stash and I just finished knitting this socktopus. A s a bonus I used really scrappy yarn I’ll never knit with to stuff the body of the beast. Melissa is going to give it to her nephew when she goes home for christmas next week…. if Georgie doesn’t tear off a tentacle first!
Next I’m going to unravel a scarf that I rescued from the pile of clothes destined for salvation army and reknit it. It was too short as a scarf but I think its going to be a good cowl! Will keep you posted.
