If you've read my blog for a while, then you know how much I like to make string quilts from scraps, and that I've even been known to take a piece of fabric from the wastebasket to use in a block. I've discovered, while going through boxes of works in progress, that scraps can be more than fabric.
From past crocheting projects I've accumulated several balls of soft yarn. They are much too pretty to throw away! So they're going to be made into scrappy granny squares, put together as a baby afghan, much the same way I would use strings in a quilt.
However, there are two things I don't like about granny squares: 1)Setting them together, and 2)in this scrappy form there are LOTS of yarn tails on the back of the square to work in which will take a while. But with the help of a needle threader and a crewel embroidery needle with a large eye, it can be done ~ with patience. Or, maybe you can tell me an easier way to work them in.
Now, back to my question, am I being frugal, or just cheap?
Think about it,
