So, I have this project that I have posted about before. I am making a project, either knit or crochet, that will include yarn from all over the world as I hit various ports on my eventually Navy deployment.

I want to make one thing to include all of the yarns, but I don't know where to start with a pattern! I am thinking that a scarf or a blanket would be best

I figure this is super similar to a stash busting project, since it will include lots of colors and weights and generally not quite matching yarn.

Does anyone have a favorite multi-yarn project they would like to share?

I've been doing the sock yarn blanket by Shelly Kang. Loads of people have done different things with the squares- making a blanket, pillows, table covers, etc...I've used a few different weights ranging from lace weight to a medium weight but that's about it. It takes a lot of time but I love using my leftovers for something rather than throwing them away, storing them for "just in cases."

No recent pictures of mine- This is from when I just began the blanket.

Thank you very much for posting the picture! It gives me a wonderful idea of what such an array of colors can add to a project! So far, I have been trying to get yarns in coordinating colors, but I fear down the road, that may be extremely difficult/ Glad to know it will look beautiful!
