I have a bunch of extra yarn left over from previous projects, including many different colors of Cascade 220. (You can see all the beautiful colors of Cascade 220 here, available at Jimmy Beans Wool.) I decided to knit a striped scarf with my extra yarn, and it has been fun so far. I haven't knit a scarf in years, and I am finding it relaxing to knit something with no pattern whatsoever.
I decided to go with garter stitch because I wanted a homey look, which I think goes along with the random striping. This is a great project to use up your extra bits and pieces of yarn.
How do you use up extra yarn?
