Wanted Yarn Scraps!

I am so excited!  I have all these little balls of yarn that I hate to toss, as they can be used for something, but i don't know what.  I have slowly been gathering patterns for fridge magnets and such, but tonight at craft group I found a much better thing to do with them!

A lady there collects them, and she and others make little dolls with them, about 6 inches tall.  They then use these for packing material when sending dental equipment to third world countries.  It serves 2 purposes - way better than those styrofoam packing peanuts, and they are something for the little kids who come to the dentist and are scared.  They get a present after!

I am just so thrilled to have a great place to donate these to!
