Yarn, Yorkshire and All Manner of Wonderful Things!

Scrap Happy- October

Time again to share the lovely things that can be made from scraps. I am using leftover balls of yarn to make a little book for Baby J. Can’t start too early with books to my mind.

I just had to add a chimney!

Not a cockerel Claire, but the sun!

Three more motifs to go, should be done by Knit and Natter Friday.

Meantime do check out Kate’s post for lots more scrappy projects. I particularly like Kate’s green block this time round.

  1. What a great idea! They’d also make a lovely babies blanket.

  2. Love your little knitted book, such a great way to use up those little yarn scraps.

  3. That is a lovely way to introduce books – I’ve always thought homemade picture books are the way to go and you have taken it a step further. Fab!

  4. Baby J will love books because his introduction was such a great one!

    So cute!

  6. Oh my goodness you make the cutest things! These are adorable!

  7. The book looks great and no you can never start too young:)
    You have perfect timing with the scrap projects as I was just asking last night for some ideas:)

  8. Adorable! Baby J will love squishing it.

  9. I adore these little book pages!
    My daughters were introduced very early to books and it worked because both of them are avid readers – although some of the stuff they read now is not necessarily what I would choose :/

    • My sons are all readers too. The first books I bought the eldest were three nursery ryhme books from Ladybird because I had forgotten them.

  10. What a clever idea! I agree about books.

  11. I absolutely love this idea! How are you intending to bind it?

  12. Gorgeous scrappiness, Cathy. Lucky Baby J, to have such a talented Nana 🙂

    • Thanks Kate. Apparently big brother Master H now 9 has refused to be parted from all the “teddies” I made him over the years. This is all very fitting as his Dad had so many soft toys they took up all of his bed.
