Awhile ago, a friend asked if he could have some of my yarn and embroidery floss. He doesn't crochet, knit, sew or cross stitch, so I was puzzled by the request. "What are you going to do with the yarn?" I asked him.
He said, "I'm going to use it to tie flies for fly fishing."
Turns out that he didn't need big pieces; he was happy to have a bunch of little pieces of my scrap yarn.
I was more than happy to give the scraps to him. I rarely throw any pieces of yarn away, not even the pieces that are too small to do anything with...so they tend to accumulate in my stash. Yay! I made a fisherman happy, and decluttered a bit at the same time.
