Bits of leftover yarn are always rolling around in my house, some of it sits for months, years all lonely in the “leftover” corner of the stash room. I loved this yarn and I wanted it to be used rather than it sitting all lonely with the rest of the stash. I had just enough leftover yarn to knit a small cowl/scarf.
