left over yarn????
I have just completed my 4th project and I find that I have small amounts of yarn left over. (1/2 ball or less) Does anyone know of a project that uses all different kinds of yarn? Thanks

hi tim, where in alabama are you? I'm in odenville.
for you leftover yarn, you could use it to make granny squares with a main color later to go around the blocks.

did anybody else notice that it appears we have another guy amongst us? i think the guys should all get together for a Knit in somewhere and freak out the locals!


You could take all your balls of yarn and make a funky odds n ends scarf or afghan or hat or rug. swatch them up with various stitches and then connect them together and make a knitting bag.

I've been using my leftover yarn to make cat-nip filled toys for my kitty. She them!

Birmingham, AL here.

Yes....another guy....closeted guy that is. I recently flew to Boston and took my knitting but couldn't work up enough nerve to knit on the plane. I did, however, enjoy finding and browsing in a great yarn shop in Cambridge. Actually, while I was in the shop there were two other men that came in and shopped. That was encouraging. Not too many of us that we know of yet.

Tim --

There's a book called Oddball Knitting that has some good ideas -- hats, scarves, shawls, rugs, etc. I got a copy of it at the library. It's a pretty nice little book!

I've not yet done it, but I intend to make funky, cool socks with my leftover sock yarn & then perhaps do modular knitting with my worsted wt :D

Welcome Tim!

Cambridge is my home town! Glad you felt at home in the yarn shop.

I love to see guys knitting in public. That's how the stereotypes are being reformed.

Want to see more guys knitting!! <----platonically enamoured with guy knitters.
