with a ton of acrlic yarn??? Before I started knitting I crocheted. I have a ton of red hart yarn that I hate now, (thanks to you guys opening my eyes to the real world of yarn!!) and I have no idea to do with. I thought about selling it on e-bay, but then thought that maybe you guys would have some ideas on how to use it.

I donated a lot of mine. You could just offer it up for charity projects, either here or locally.

I gave mine to a friend.

The rest I'm going to use here: www.snugglesproject.org

You might try selling it on ebay. You know, the Greater Fool theory: If you were fool enough to buy it, there's a greater fool out there who will buy it from you! :lol:

Warm-up America Squares: that's what I'm doing with some of mine...

If you wanna just get rid of some of it, I'll pay for shipping to me. I'd love to make some homeless pet blankets, but I don't have anything I can make it with. So far the only "stash" I have is the few left over balls from my projects (which are all the size of a tennis ball or less. Mostly less.)

Yep! I was at Micheals and saw the display and a basket for squares. I thought what an easy way to help someone and clear out the stash drawer. I'm not making a whole afghan, just making the rectangles to drop off at Micheals.

I'm hoping I come across a cheap stash of acrylic yarn to make afgan squares out of. Some I might donate to warm up america, some I might just hang on to and make myself an afgan, eventually. And there's nothing like afgan squares for practicing stitch patterns.
