I have no idea why, but I seem to inherit large amounts of leftover yarn from friends and relatives. Last time it was Lopi wool, which I took because I thought it would be great to make large felted projects out of. This time it was bags and bags of Melrose rayon. I have no idea what I could possibly use this stuff for! Of course the original pattern that it was bought for was not included so i couldnt even just finish the project she was planning on making.
Of course I also have to buy my own favorites. I just started a tofutee, a t-shirt made out of 2 strands of tofutsies knit together. I also have two balls of sock wool and 2 of cascade fixation waiting to be made into socks for my family.
