Scraps of Love

So, I am not sure about anyone else(this is a lie as I know so many crocheters who find it unbearable to part with even the tiniest scraps of yarn) but I don't like throwing away any amount of yarn at the end of a project that can be used in something else, even if it is a tiny ball. 
When I get these ends of balls or oddments I make small, sometimes tiny balls and I put them all safely in a basket. 

Then what to do with them???
Sometimes they come in handy for small granny squares or body parts of toys, but I am in the process of creating a colourful, warm, cheery scrapghan and I LOVE it.
All these small bits of yarn crocheted randomly together to create a mish mash blanket to snuggle under.
I adore perfection, especially gazing at others work, lovingly and perfectly put together, but deep down I am a Mrs Weasley kind of person. If it's made with Love and it does the job then that in itself is perfect(I have actually crocheted some Mrs Weasley to love all the crochet in the HP films)

I love it. No planning, no co-ordination just grab a ball of yarn and join it on, perfect for days when I am too poorly to concentrate or when there is no other project that needs my attention.
 I use the invisible join method with this blanket so no endless amount of ends to sew in which with this kind of blanket is important.
So! On this miserable, rainy day I am snuggled underneath it, adding to it and with a silly grin on my face, adoring it.
Happy Sunday x
