Have you discovered the cool site called TipNut ? I subscribe to their newsletter , and guess what I’ve found there? A listing of 42 knitting and 12 crochet patterns for using up all those left-overs from kitchen cotton balls. Cozies, mats, scrubbies, dishcloths, etc, all practical and useful, whether made for gifts or for yourself. A little treasure trove of kitchen stuff! They have other needlework and crafts projects too. A fun place to explore for all kinds of good stuff.
