Ah! An idea!!

If you have enough odd ball yarn, make a pair of socks!!

They may look rediculous, but hey, no one needs to know :rofling:

I read a GREAT idea someplace
but I have NOidea where it was right now

put smaller balls in a basket in your living/sitting/visiting room with a coujple extra psirs of needles, start a few rows of 48 stitches
and let visitors have SOMETHING to knit while they visit and you do not have to feel bad when you pull out YOUR knitting during the visit

I am SHAMELESS, can you tell?

Ya! Good suggestion!!

How about a wonky scarf? Knit a few rows in one yarn, switch needles and yarns for another few. How about rolling some of that yarn onto bobbins and knitting a couple of vertical stripes that help tie the other colors together? Use every stitch you know. Make up some new ones!

EXACTLY
:D
Each person does their own thing
with which ever yearn they like best
some can do fancy cabels
some can do Stockinette
some can do Mistaken Ribbing
you end up with a Neat Scarf, that never ends, it just goes on and on (My Friends)

:D LOL
