So I guess that I can chuck that half finished scarf I have in the closet. It's so yesterday, right?

Sorry, I posted this in the wrong spot. Can't figure how to delete or move this!

Hi Cindy! If nobody has replied to your post yet, you can simply click on the little folder icon with the pencil over it - if you hover your mouse, you'll see the words "edit topic." That'll let you move the post. (And only chuck the half-finished scarf if you don't like it!)

However, now that I've replied, it won't let you move the thread. Also, I can't merge this thread into the TNNA thread. So it shall reside, oh so proudly, right here instead.

Thanks so much! I am sooooo chucking that scarf...1) because it sounds like it's "out of style" (although in 10-15 years it will probably be in again)and 2) because the yarn is a tangled mess that I keep telling myself I will untangle at some point in the future. I'm pretty sure it's been 5 or 6 years since I tried last. It's like psychic baggage sitting there in my closet mocking me...

Can you use it for stuffing a toy in similar colors? If it's got the same washing requirements as the toy yarn does, it might work nicely as stuffing and be better than white toy stuffing that shows through if you're not careful. If there's a good bit of it, it might be nice to use for a larger toy.

My mom used up my eyelash stash making stuffed toys - beards for gnomes and spikes for hedgehogs.

Aw..what a pity, because you can use "normal" yarn as the 'body' and continue with the eyelash and give it to a kid/tween.. I think they would love it.
