When you think all you have are scraps, think again, this is what I made from my 'scraps' of yarn last night. Not that anything I have I consider to be 'scraps' as such, because everything has a use, it's just a matter of time before you discover when and where.
When I finish a project, any yarn left over gets wound up and put into a container together with previous left-overs. Including all those little wound in ends that you snip off, yes, they also have a use, well at my house they do. I will share this with you hopefully in the next week or two.
My crochet squares above are going to be posted off to Mrs Twins to be sewn up and distributed to nursing homes and those that are in desperate need of warm blankets in the UK. It snows over there you know, and although it's warm there right now, it won't be in a few months time, so if you have any 'scraps' in your collection, pull out your hook and make up a few little squares of 'sunshine' for those less fortunate. It takes next to no time to hook up, and you are having a little tidy up at the same time as bringing a little love to cold knees. On the other hand, if you can't hook or knit, but you know someone that does, tell them about this wonderful site and maybe by you spreading the word, we can get more people warm. I am sure offers of yarn would not be turned away at all either for the making up of the rugs, but check with Mrs Twins first. I am sure she is happy to answer any questions you may have.
While I am here, I would like to say thank you to Mrs Twins for putting in the huge effort in memory of her Grandma. She must have been one very special lady to have a wonderful granddaughter like Mrs Twins.
