ways to use up yarn

This is one pretty charming way. Especially if you are on the receiving end.  I like how she braided strands together instead of just wrapping it round and round.
From my friend Julie. She said she thought of consulting  Shear Spirit and making a Navajo Braid with the yarn. navajobraidHer saying that, and actually referencing the book? A gift, too.
Navajo braid from churro sheep roving  on Jay Begay's ranch, on the rez in Arizona 
Here's a link from our photo shoot there.

Very clever use of yarn!!! HBO has "Swamplandia" in development right now! It's supposed to be very entertaining. Enjoy and happy b-day...again!

Yes, this is a wonderful way to use up leftover bits of yarn. Especially for wrapping birthday gifts! Happy Birthday, by the way...
