Yarn Scraps Hat and Socks

I couldn't resist trying this when I read about it. The idea is to make a magic ball of yarn scraps. Cut pieces of yarn from 1 - 3 feet long and tie them together. Be sure to mix up the lengths when tying them. Knit a hat and pull all of the knots to the outside. Trim the ends so they are relatively even.

Finally had a chance to finish the socks that were put aside while bazaar items were in the works. Unfortunately, by the time the socks were finished I'd forgotten what the yarn was.

These are from my Sockotta stash and have a fleegle heel. This is a new technique for me and I really like it.

Same with these. My Sockotta stash has been around for awhile. When I got my yarnwinder, I pulled out the skeins of Sockotta and divided them into 2 balls each so they were ready to be knit up two at a time. It didn't occur to me to keep the labels. So now I can show them off but can't identify them.
