The Perfectly “Usable” Yarn

So I may have misspoke when I said that the Panguipulli was unusable. I wasn’t content to just let it sit unused in my knitting trunk, cast aside and ignored. So after trying many different patterns I thought, let’s go for something simple.

It doesn’t get much more simple than garter stitch. I figured at least this would let the vibrancy of the wool come through. The colours themselves would be the detail. I knit up the whole skein and then sewed the ends together to make a cowl/scarf item.

It’s not the most exciting piece, but it’s functional, warm and I no longer feel bad about leaving the yarn. Okay there’s still one skein in there, but that’s beside the point.

The Unusable yarn in all its glory

Turns out it's just as functional as all my other yarn
