So--I went to get a skein of yarn the other day, to start knitting a pair of socks, and I noticed that the basket I keep my leftover yarn balls in was overflowing. I mean, seriously overflowing! So I sorted through it and picked out several small balls of yarn to try and use up some of the leftovers. I was quite pleased to find I used three of the four little balls making the socks (yes, I did have to do a Russian Join). Then I was discouraged to realize it didn't make a dent in the basket!
Right then and there, I realized I needed to create a challenge for myself. Hence: The Crow's Great Balls 'O Yarn Challenge. Anyone can do it--you just need to make some small projects to use up those leftover balls of yarn from other projects. Join me! Reduce the stash!
Here's my stash of left-over yarn.
And here's the first item created--a pair of socks!
These three little balls are my next project. I plan to create a doll hat and mittens. I'll let you know when they are done!
It's a hard life, trying to knit...oh, wait, no it isn't! I think this is going to be a lot of fun, and I am very competitive, even when it's just with myself. I have the brim of the hat almost done--!
