Episode 2: Leftover Skeins

Knitting Gifts
The story of a gifted pair of mittens and a hat  that were not very well received!

On the Needles 
We’re both making socks in different styles and sizes, but from the same basic design.  Molly has put a pretty cable down the side of hers and is in love with the Lynai yarn she recently purchased for her socks.   Clare is a sleeve short of finishing her personal cardigan design for a new baby boy.  Molly’s Woodstove Season cardigan is coming along nicely on ggh Solitaire yarn.  She has also cast on and is two rows short of finishing a pretty flower wash cloth from weekend knitting out of Sugar and Cream cotton yarn.

Stash Management
What can one do with leftover skeins? We both hate to throw away or waste yarn! Inspired by an episode of Never not Knitting, Clare started using her leftover skeins to make hexipuffs. Molly decided to knit the hexipuffs after she saw tiny owl knit's video about hexipuffs.  Molly likes to use hers to wrap parcels, especially when there’s a knitted gift inside!
