"Pincushions are great stashbusters because they are small projects. This works up really quickly and easily in bulky yarn and is a great way to use up yarn scraps! And, you can also use Pablo to keep track of your yarn needles, or pretty much any pointy thing you have lots of. It's also a very cute amigurumi stuffed plushie which can be gifted to a child in your life as a sweet companion or toy to play with."
