Yes plenty of scraps but I hate doing Fairisle.

Perhaps this would be good practice. I'll see.

I'm aiming for fun ornaments and skip the Fairisle. Then after the holidays, just might put them in a basket or bowl, on display.

These could be made into cat toys, too. Or toys for children with the right yarns.

Love it Nonny !
I have reached the part of the pattern that tells you to stuff your polystyrene ball into the knitting !
No matter how hard I try the ball is refusing to be stuffed Confused
Now going to fill it with pet friendly stuffing and give it to Norman Laughing
.

I used scraps of christmas sock yarn I purchased in Harrogate last year .
