About: Yarn Scraps Tips & Ideas (Includes links to Unique Scrappy Projects!)
I used that same technique you used for your 'cat mat' to use up scraps of wool and crocheted a large felted potholder that, after I machine felted it, was still just a tad bigger than a 9×13 baking pan. I gave it as a gift to my mom and she loves it. I used black wool on the whole thing and then two different colors of wool and, just like you did, would use a color til I ran out and then add another color. It turned out really thick, but it definitely protects a tabletop from a hot baking pan or even a cast iron skillet.
Oh, my goodness! What a delight to hear your southern accent! I am a southern lady living in New England, and you made me feel like I was home. I enjoyed your video for the content as well. I am a beginner knitter and crocheter so I’ve subscribed to your channel and can’t wait to see more! God bless!
use the knitting machines.are the measurements the same when you work with needles?
I use a lot of mine to make hats to donate to the local shelter
What about mixing different types of yarn? For instance, say super saver, maybe roving-type yarns, DK, & sport wts, etc. I have lots of leftover sock yarns. I'm making a sock on one of my knitting machines (Passap), with some leftovers, to practice techniques. I have several looms, and I'm teaching my Granddaughter to crochet & knit & loom, but she 300 miles away and just turned 8. Started the crochet when she was almost 6. By herself, she's not doing well, but the looms are easy.
Such a great video very informative ! And lots of beautiful hats (and Pom Pom’s ) so cute! to donate wonderful! I will do that with my scrape 🧶
Dear Lord, your trick of counting the rows to find if you have enough yarn has just saved me from endless headaches! Thank you so much for the tip!

I've been watching crochet videos all week and looking forward to actually trying to make something. I really enjoyed yours and wanted to say how nice it was to listen to your speaking voice. Finally someone who doesn't end every sentence as if it is a question! Drives me nutty.

Can someone help me. Corner to corner. When you stop change your 6 crochet. What do you do next
I gave you a like just because you donate your projects ❤❤❤
I interned at an animal shelter when I as in college. There were a lot of knitted "cat mats" that were donated. The staff didn't like to use them because cat claws easily got stuck in them and caused the cats stress. They would use them once, wash them, and donate them to the thrift store. Maybe you should make mats for setting hot pans on the counter instead.
