At last! The crocheted afghan of massive avoirdupois is finished. I’ve got to block it and mail it. I hope it fits into a large flat rate box, or I’ll be spending a fortune to ship it.
I was accumulating a large pile of bits and pieces of yarn as I wove in ends and snipped them off.
This got me thinking about possible uses for them besides the trash, or maybe stuffing a knitted toy. I certainly wasn’t movtivated to do anything creative with them. Then we had dinner at a friends, and that all changed in one magic moment.
Our friend took out a dust mitt his grandmother made him. He said he doesn’t use it, but he keeps it for a memento, because he really loved her.
I begged for an action photo:
I did a quick search on knitted dust mitt, and it didn’t take long. If anyone seriously is interested, here you are, a free pattern. Personally, my ends and pieces are in the trash.
