We've all been there: an awesome yarn sale with miscellaneous skeins of beautiful yarn in a variety of colors. It may sound like a yarn lover's dream come true. The only problem? There's only one skein available of many (if not all) of the colors. You load up your cart anyway because the colors are just too pretty to pass up.

My grandmother was born in Scotland and reared her family in New England, so waste not was thoroughly ingrained in my mom. I save all my shortest trimmings for bird nests, and the rest is sorted by length because I always need a little for embroidery. This easily downloadable eBook was so much fun to browse through. I even found a few projects to start on right away.
