Kelly’s Projects

I got a whole basket full of yarn scraps for my Dozens of Little Squares. Shout out and huge thank you to Alene, who tracked me down at school to deliver the gift. She had placed the scraps in a basket that she made from quilting fabric. I’ve already made and washed over 30 squares. 

Yarn construction discussion..plied, cabled, singles, how many plies, how tightly twisted. All of these yarn structures in the sock yarn scraps. It is interesting to see them all and to see how they weave up. I think these little squares could be a great beginner project to learn about yarn, but then again, maybe the differences wouldn't be obvious or interesting to a yarn novice. 

Continuing on the Sockhead Hat with Punk Rock Unicorn Dirty Neon.
