Use Up That Yarn!

Hope everyone is having a glorious Monday! I am! Leisure Arts is closed today for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, so I’m at home, playing with my yarn. (The yarn that the Love-Of-My-Life is beginning to be a little bit concerned about!) How many of you out there will admit to having a stash? Do you have yarn tucked away in the closet, under the bed, stacked on the dining table…

You’re not alone! I’m right there with you…recklessly buying a skein or two here, another there, and it’s completely impossible for me to actually throw away even the smallest partial skein or ball…

But never fear…The Crochet Dude himself, Drew Emborsky has come to our rescue with his newest crochet pattern book—Use Up That Yarn! This book is filled with 13 of the most wonderfully practical designs to crochet from the yarn you’ve got pack ratted away in your stash!

The designs are a cute, fresh, and fun mix of home décor and fashion accessories, and being small, they’d be great take-along projects that you could work on anywhere! Check them out!
