I've been organising my yarn so that if there's anything I'd like to get used up, it's at the front of the shelf, for obvious reasons. At the front I had a bag of little balls of yarn that came as a wee collection ready to be used up. And while I've been thinking of a suitable project for it, the cat has been wandering into the cupboard (as cats do) and raking about, to the point where this bag keeps falling on her head. It's only a little bag and she's used to rummaging through the organised chaos in my cupboard, so it's not doing her any harm and it reminds her that she doesn't belong in there. So it's been a nice deterrent!
Anyway, I thought I'd better get the yarn used up to save the cat's head (hence the blog title) and also after confessing to an office colleague that I have at least 72 litres of yarn in the cupboard (that's just the yarn that's in the measurable boxes). I've been making flower bunting for a year or so now, but I noticed that the colours of this collection co-ordinate, so decided to try crocheting some standard bunting, the kind with the pointy flags.
There wasn't a huge amount of this yarn, but enough to make a reasonable selection of small flags. And once I'd attached them all together they make a fairly decent length of bunting!
