Most knitters have a fair amount of stash around the house. Even I, who claims not to be a stasher, has a few choice souvenir skeins that deserve to be shown off. Knitless: 50 No-Knit, Stash-Busting Yarn Projects by Laura McFadden has really opened my eyes to yarn possibilities beyond knitting or crocheting.
The book is broken up into four sections, For The Home, Wearable Accessories, Yarn Art, and Stationery And Gift Ideas.
The first chapter, For The Home, is my favorite. I am tempted to show you all the projects, but instead have chosen my favorite three.
The book shows this as a rug, but I think that with just a few tweaks it would make a fabulous table runner. It is all I can do to keep typing and not start measuring my kitchen island.
How cool is this idea? A way to completely personalize that flea market find or piece from the bargain store. Switching up the colors can change the look from calm and sophisticated, to whimsical and bold.
