Using up bits and pieces of yarn …

I always seem to end up with little balls of mix-and-match yarn left over from scarves, hats, etc. For the longest time I never knew what to do with them, but now I sort them out into pleasing color combinations and then crochet them into little multi-colored lap blankets (my kids and cats love curling up with the blankets). I decided to make a slightly bigger one this time … but now I feel like I’m crocheting a full-size sleeping bag. ;-)

  1. Love this! I made something similar from a pile of leftover yarn, and it’s the kids’ favorite throw. Mine, too. I bet you’ll love it when it’s done! Mine is here:

  2. I also make blankets with the leftover yarn. My kids call them the ‘mish-mosh’ blankets!!
