So, I really wanted to make this,
but first I had to use up all of this.
I have a self-imposed rule that I'm not allowed to buy any more yarn unless I can use up what I already own.
So I made a roller coaster runner, a functional trivet/coaster collection that doubles as a lovely runner for my dining table.
It was really easy to make too! I just cut out a bunch of felt circles in assorted sizes and glued yarn in a spiral. I finished some of the rounds with criss-crossed yarn and gold thread.
The only problem was that it hardly dented my huge pile of yarn. I still have tons of it left.
I must confess, I still went to the store and bought the yarn for the cowl anyway...and it was totally worth it!
