i have this problem, see...

i have a problem.

i have a lot of yarn.


don't get me wrong - i love yarn. the texture, color, possibilities in one skein...it's amazing.


however, when you have at least two shoeboxes full of little odds and ends and no little projects, well...that's more my problem.


i have run out of little projects to make with all of my odds and ends.

does anyone have any suggestions? links to patterns? if so, please let me know!

  1. You could make granny squares and then piece them together into a blanket. :) Or you could make little butterflies, hearts, starts, etc to place on bags or blankets or hats. Or you could start a scrap afgan, and then add all your scraps you aquire until it's big enough. :) There are lots of little things you can make! Here is a link to my all time favorite crochet youtube channel. It reeeally helps!! There are lots of step by step crochet tutorials!

    1. Yes, I have! I love Pinterest. *smiles*. I'll have to keep hunting up little projects on there.
      As for snow, we only have a few little spots left where our snowbanks were. It's really sad how small our amount of snow has been.

      Emily.

  3. Oh gracious yes! I have much too much yarn with no plan or future. Sad, yes, I know. But if you've got tiny little balls of yarn, I'd make a bunch of little flowers, hair pieces, multicolored scarves, tiny little purses, etcetera. If you don't need things like such- give em' away! People love tiny little odds and ends.

    Love,
    Gabby

  4. *hee-hee* This post made me smile, dear Emily. I too have the exact same problem. :) What are we to do??? Some of my favorite things to make are :: small crocheted flowers, or hearts; knitted scarves, purses, and (my favorite project) ear-warmers.

    Have a lovely day,
    In the precious name of Jesus,

  5. Hello Emily,

    I just wanted to send you a short note and let you know that we are missing you at the 52-verse challenge. Have you been able to continue memorizing God's Word throughout this year? If so, we would love to hear from you again!

    In Christ,

    1. Hello, Ana!
      I have been memorizing verses pretty much each week (some weeks more than one), I just have not been faithful in commenting on the blog and I have not posted about it here. I have been memorizing, though! I will try to comment on the blog, though.

      Thanks so much for stopping by!
      Emily.
