We Love Crochet
I went to my dad's house and I came back with a big huge box & some Wal*Mart sacks full of yarn and material!!|
Then when Ross came over, he left a bag o' yarn, also!! OMG I AM SWIMMING IN YARN!! Any ideas of what to do with it?
hehehe, you could send some to those who might need some *wink* hehehe
or make stuff?
cut random lengths of different colors and make a scarf or afgan. kind of like creating your own scraps and leftovers. or make one of something in every color!!
When I had tons of different yarns, I made giant granny blankies in a lapghan size to donate to charity. I still have a box of them because I can't think of where to send them but I think they'd be great for seniors or anyone hospitalized because they are so cheery.http://www.knitting-crochet.com/crochet/giagraafg.html
Any fun afghan pattern with a lot of color changes would be great for busting through yarn, although the weather is going to get hot (so holding an afghan on your lap while you work it will be a pain). You could make granny squares or other small motifs to stitch together later. That way you stay cool but also can bust through a lot of yarn.
Starting on Christmas presents now is a good idea. (Note to self)
I know what I would do; I would make a Doctor Who scarf and maybe anything else that strikes my fancy.
However, you could think about Christmas presents.
dont know where you live, still new to this live journal stuff, but when i get alot of scraps i have this neat pattern that makes a great big square with the v-stitch, when im done i take them to the community nursing home, they love them even inthe summer, (some complain about the air being to cold) or i make shawls the ladies really like those.
i have been doing this about 2 years, i but alot of cheap scrap yarn on ebay.
if you like i can get a picture of the v-stitch afghan and post it and the instructions to it.
im currently working on an elmo afghan for my niece( she twentysomething and loves elmo)
i'm making it for a queen size bed.
