Frugal Friday …

I’m always looking for new ways to use yarn in my stash up especially the small leftovers of beautiful handspun or hand dyed loveliness. I personally knit, crochet and weave but have you ever considered wrapping yarn? Breathe new life into a lampshade by simply wrapping yarn around it (the further away from the bulb the better, acrylic yarn isn’t really recommended for this). Have a standard lamp or a chair that could be brightened by wrapping all those little leftovers around them? If you can’t bear to do anything other than knit or crochet with your yarn then consider a simple tube to go over your existing lightshade (consider colour blocking, or if you handspin yarn you can blend the colour in like in the 3rd photo). Whatever you choose have fun stash busting!! πŸŒˆπŸ¦„
