    I have a tub I throw all my scraps and non-luxury leftovers in. It's near overflowing. I'll make mats for the local cat shelter until I grow weary of working on them. I give it another 3 days or so.

      These are 16" x 10". They fit nicely in the carrier for vet visits. I double & sometime triple my yarns to get to an Aran weight. The Tunisian simple stitch gives it quite a bit of cushion. I use a K-6.5 mm hook.

      Great idea and thanks for the stats on what you did. This is a great idea to try out a new pattern too. How many new patterns have a I tried (full size) only to stop partway and add it to the WIP bin! I like this idea a lot. Thanks for sharing it.

      It’s hard to stash bust when you keep starting new WIPs before finishing old ones. 😂😂

    Hats are my favorite stashbusting projects. That and mittens. Actually I guess I mean left over stash!! Both from Add Budd's Handy Book of Patterns
