This past winter, I wore the bottoms out of a piar of knitted house slipper/socks. I had been given a good bit of miscellaneous yarn for which I hadn't been able to think of much use, so I took some of it and crocheted new bottoms for the house socks. Now they are set for this coming winter.

Does anyone have any ideas for what to use various small amounts of non-matching and not really pretty colored yarn? Making the bottoms to thes slippers successfully used up some of it, but not much. I hate waste things and toss the yarn out, but I'm at a loss of thinking of something useful to do with the rest of it. Any ideas would be welcome!


  1. A friend of mine crocheted covers over a few coat hangers for me with some blue and white yarn. I would think that would be a good way to use up some of it. My clothes hang much better and look better on the padded hangers so I wish I could make some more. I can't crochet - wish I could!

    P.S. What happened to your goat wagon sutlers blog? My link for it is not working.

  2. Thank you for the suggestion! My website host changed the web pages, so the link on the blog page is different now. Here is the new one:
