I was digging in my yarn bin of acrylic yarns yesterday.  I like to use these yarns for afghans, for some hats that I make to donate and other little things like …….cat toys.  Yes, my cats are spoiled.

Lately I feel that I want to clear out some of my supplies.  I have so much.  I have decided to purge most of these acrylic yarns, but just donating them isn’t as likely to help someone as the item made from them.  

I found a handful of granny squares that were from another abandoned project.  I pulled them out, and came up with a new plan.  I want to turn them into an Afghan to keep someone warm, but I don’t have enough yarn to complete one in different colors.  Then I found a large ball of yarn from a other discarded project, nice plain white yarn.  I added a fourth row of color and made a few more squares so I have twenty.    I will add enough rows of the white to have a big block.  I think these mismatched scrappy squares will end up looking pretty surrounded by white, and maybe I can empty one of my many, many bins!

Tonight I sat on the sofa and reached over to pick up my block, and saw this:

What a goofy little dog she is!

I am loving this block already!

Use it up!
