Christmas in July Ornaments

You’d be hard pressed to get us to admit it’s too hot to knit or crochet, but sometimes you want a change of pace.

Sometimes you start eying yarn scraps and thinking there must be something you can do with them aside from throwing them away.

IMG_20140705_083611One of our employees decided to have fun with Christmas in July over the long holiday.

She stuffed color coordinated yarn scraps into glass balls that she purchased at a craft store.

Now, she had the advantage of being able to use the tufts of yarn from color cards for discontinued yarn. You can involve children by having them cut the yarn up for you!

Don’t they look fun?

You can decorate your tree, or give them as gifts to your other yarn loving friends.

What do you do with your yarn scraps?

Our friends at Juniper Moon Farm put out scraps for birds to use in their nests.

    Good thing to tuck into the package with a knitted gift….containing extra yarns for repairs.
