I cant bear to throw away good yarn. I even save my project trimmings to put out for the birds. Its made for some colorful nests around here. This collection has some great ideas for using up your skein ends, but be advised, some of the links arent valid any more. I can highly recommend the Stashbuster Spring Flowers. Ive made so many of them, Ive run out of scraps and had to dip into full skeins.

I simply love books such as these. They help me clean out my stash of left over yarn and put it to good use. I will have a bunch of gifts ready for the holidays by the end of July. I can also make up a few things for myself which will be a novelty. That big box in the back of my closet is starting to look good with all the presents you have helped me make ahead. Thanks

I, also, am unable to find Anastasia's Scrapghan pattern...does anyone know where it is?

I am unable to find the pattern for "Anastasia's Scrap Afghan." Your website just keeps going back to the original page for "15 Free Crochet Patterns to use up leftover yarn"

Colorful and pretty looking projects.
