Boho Bangles Project from Stashbuster Knits by Melissa Leapman
There’s no such thing as “too much yarn.” In fact, if you just mention the word stash to any knitter or crocheter, you’ll likely get a slightly mischievous grin in response. “Oh you mean my ‘yarn reserves.’” One might quip. “I could never accumulate enough!” Some even joke that whoever dies with the biggest hoard wins [. . .]
But our beloved stash somehow stirs a sense of guilt. It’s a love/hate relationship. As much as we secretly enjoy that occasional midnight “Dive Into the Reservoir of Treasure” (DIRT), we also struggle to “Whittle All Stash on Hand” (WASH). We gaze upon the piles and bags and bins and sometimes think it’s a waste, that there’s so much potential in there, if only we could figure out what to do with it.
Sometimes all you need to jazz up a plain outfit is a wrist full of bracelets. In her new book, Stashbuster Knits, popular knitting teacher, designer, and author Melissa Leapman offers a new spin on this popular trend that also makes use of your yarn odds and ends. Whether worn individually or stacked, these bangles are a great use of your scrap yarn (if you are willing to spare it!).
