Oh lonely balls of yarn…August 21, 2007
Whatever will I do with you?
So, what do you do with leftovers from past projects? As I am cleaning up my yarn area I am finding misc very small balls of yarn.
The artsy side of me says I should keep them forever, because you never know when I would need a small bit of yarn for something like for an accent or…???
The more practical part of me says that I should throw it out as it is just the clutter bug in me and that I need to free myself of really small balls of yarn or they will just take up space and look cluttery. Also, they will make it look like I have more yarn then I really do.
I could try to donate it on freecycle. I don’t know who would want some really small balls of yarn, but you never know…
Okay…so, what do you do? Do you just keep a basket of odd and ends? Do you find odd and end projects to use them up?
Please don’t tell me you never have leftover yarn. Some of this wouldn’t even make a good scrap blanket. For example, I have some leftover cotton/rayon yarn. Not a good blanket yarn.
