Another yarn hack – “crazy yarn”

Laughing Purple Goldfish Designs‘ definition of crazy yarn: bits and bobs of leftover yarns which have been accumulating, then cut into assorted lengths (no greater than six metres), then mixed all up and knotted together randomly. No fancy knotting technique, just leaving a tail of about an inch or so. Regardless of fibre type and thickness. There’s cottons, acrylics, wools, novelty yarn, and every possible blend in between. All mixed in together.

The evolution of…. crazy yarn:

How fantastic is that?
