Many moons ago I wove an eggy tapestry and ended up with a bunch of leftover navy and white cotton yarn. I’ve done a couple small projects with the leftovers and now I have…much smaller balls of leftover yarn.
First up, I wove a set of nautical-esque coasters:
Like all the objects I weave, this design followed my own pattern. The intent was to make 2 coasters for each WFH desk in this household: dark coasters to go under coffee mugs, and light ones for water glasses.
This one is kind of funny because if you squint, you might be able to see a color gradation in the navy yarn. The reason for that is that I hit pause for awhile on this first coaster, and just kind of left it out in my apartment in the sun. Apparently these yarns are not very color-fast!
I still had plenty of yarn left to burn when I finally finished these, so I knitted up a fast washcloth (good application for this, given that it’s cotton yarn):
This one is fairly free-styled, too. There’s a 5-stitch-wide seed stitch pattern around the edges, and the center of the washcloth is your basic stockinette stitch.
Need to work on my tension when switching colors, happily taking any advice there.
Now what to do with those tiny leftover balls of yarn…?
