For some time now Kate and Gun have been hosting ScrapHappy each month – an opportunity to show off creations made using scraps. Most of those involved sew, and there’s a predominance of quilting, but when I mentioned my knitting and crochet using yarn oddments, Kate asked whether I’d like to join in.
