Post by Wren on 15th November 2009, 4:16 pm

HI,

thought you might like to know what I do with all those pesky left over bits of yarn

Well, I save them up, and then when I get bored, I gather them all together, and knit them into squares. I do this using UK size 3 1/4mm needles, and cast on 3 stitches, then, every row, K1 inc 1 at the start of the row. When you have a triangle on the needles 1/2 the size of the square you want, K1 k2 tog at the start of every row, until you have 3 sts left, cast off.

THEN when I have a load of multi coloured squares, I sew them together et Voila, one doggie blankie!

They can be for my dog, OR a lot of the animal shelters like to have them for their residents. Useful, VERY useful.

Make dolls clothes with them, a nice stripey scarf or wrist warmers cut them up & put them out for the nesting birds.

Knit small squares to add patches to worn jumpers.

Make patch pockets for jumpers.

Depending on how long the bits are, try some french knitting

Save them up then present your nearest primary school with a bag full.
