I have tons of left over yarn but have no idea what to do with it. It's mostly varigated or I would make a blanket. And right now I am tired or making hats an scarfs. HELP!!!!!! I am not allowed to buy anymore yarn until this is gone.  Embarrassed

I am actually wanting to make a scarf from scraps but have been wondering about the ettiqutte of asking fellow craftsters to send thier yarn scraps.  I don't know enough knitters to make that happen locally.  So you could make my dream mish-mash scarf or send your scraps to me!!  Wink 

Maybe we should organize a mish-mash scrap scarf knit along..............

If the mish-mash scarf thing doesn't pan out, you could try your hand at rug making. I've been making little latch-hook rug projects lately with my scrap yarn. It's so easy and fun. You have to cut your yarn into tiny pieces (2-3 inches long), so it can be a pain. But, if you're like me and hate throwing things away (but also hate clutter), it's a good way to ease my guilty feelings for hanging onto all of my scrap yarn.

Oh, and you could make pompoms with your yarn scraps, too. We all need more pompoms, don't we?

booglass- It is too bad you didn't join the "knit a few rows of my scarf swap."  We are all starting a scarf by knitting (crocheting/whatever) ~6 inches or so then sending it on to someone else to work on it and so on and so on.  In the end we should all end up with really cool and unique scarves!

I think that varigated yarn looks really good when it is knit together with a complementing solid color yarn.  It kinds tones down the color changes a bit.  You could try making a blanket that way.  Or make a bag from the left over yarn.  Or you could make pot-holders/dish clothes for holiday presents for people.  They don't take much yarn to make......Or you can try making mittens or slippers to go along with the hats and scarves.

i've been trying to use up scraps and stash that will never be used for anything else by making a rug.  i started out just chaining 5 or 6 and joined to make a circle.  then i just started sc-ing around, increasing ea. round to make a "circle" (it's really more like a hexagon but shhh...).  I have been using 3 strands of whatever yarn comes to my hand when i reach into the bag (3 different yarns that is) and it looks pretty interesting.  the colors don't necessarily "go" together but it looks really cool as it gets worked up.  it's about 3' across right now.  i'm not sure how big it will get.

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

a mish mash scarf crochet along would be cool.
 My balls of scrap yarn are pretty big but not big enough to do any big projects with maybe I should just make a blanket with all of it an donate to charity or something. I have a big problem with just throwing yarn together everything I do that is supposed to be scrap yarn has to have a color skeem or I am not happy. Maybe I should just put it all in a bag and what I grap goes next or something.

On the mish mash scarf did you have a stitch picked out or were you going to do something random?Huh?

I tried to teach myself to knit but didn't get very far. I am  left handed so it was very hard for me.
