Yarny Jars for Pammy Sue :)

I still can't find them all. But here are the ones I have on my desk. Pammy Sue posted yesterday about collecting yarn scraps in a jar. I have saved them for many years in mason jars just because they are so colorful. The first one is just Christmas colored scraps.And buttons go in jars too:)
This one I'm still working on.
If you stuff them until a big blob of scraps pops out when you open the lid and not one more could possible fit, then it looks really neat! The yarn gets all smooshed against the glass. :)

You can also tell what scraps go with projects you did. The one below on the right was scraps from my babette, and the big afghan I did that went to Colorado.

I once read where a person saved their yarnscraps for stuffing little amigurumi, etc. Mine are in an old plastic container that used to hold a chocolate drink mix~ I love repurposing. Anyway, putting them in a clear jar looks really pretty. I might have to give that a try.
