Ideas For Using My Stash Of Weaving And Knitting Yarns

Here I am weaving a rug. I have a lot of rug yarn in my stash. It is a bit rough but I no longer have a loom nor do I want to weave any more rugs.
A neat little sleeveless for a toddler – knit by Jean Miles, Edinburgh knitter A relatively small project if I have the right yarns in my stash – and a toddler recipient.
