Scrap squares

Saturday, August 29, 2009

Because I tend to skip from project to project, I've found that I do create a lot of little scraps of different coloured yarns.

I used to throw them out, but recently I've started tying them together and have been formulating some ideas about what to do with them.

I've never really made any granny squares, because I don't have much patience for sticking to patterns, but I was thinking it would be pretty cool to make some free form squares from all my project scraps, and one day to end up with a group of squares that would represent all the things I have created in the last few years. It's going pretty slowly at the moment, because I am trying to match up colours that don't look terrible together.

But anyway, I think it would be a lovely thing to have in the end if I can sew them into a blanket or a bag shape and have a memory of all the different things I have created. It might be a very long project!
