where to find yarn for scrappies

Ok this may be a stupid (obvious) question but...

Is there anywhere to buy small skeins of yarn for scrappies... I know I could look on FSOT, but I'm wondering if anyone sells like a scrappie kit???

I have lots of yarn for solid longies, but I'm really wanting to make some scrappies without having to buy full skeins of yarn...

What are you looking for?

There are some dyers who do scrappy lots like lollytree lolly scraps. I've seen Dear Husband sets too.

People also sometimes sell lots of leftover yarn.

If I was looking for scraps I would probably stalk spots, here and post maybe on the Ravelry groups of dyers that I wanted.

Re: where to find yarn for scrappies

I have done several custom scrappy sets.

I'm sure any dyer who does customs would be willing to do a scrappy set. The Lolly Tree ones I've seen are darling!

You could also buy full skeins and wind off 1 oz for scrappies, then trade/sell or reuse the remainder.

Re: where to find yarn for scrappies

Thanks everyone... I think I need to do some more research about the different yarns and dyers... I've been knitting for a long time but this custom yarn is a whole new world to me. I get confused by which name is the dyer and which is the base yarn...

I think finding someone who is selling a lot of leftover yarn sound the easiest. How much yarn would I need for med/large size longies (I know that is somewhat subjective...) I think I'm going to try the Evie Pants pattern... would 9 or 10oz be plenty?

Re: where to find yarn for scrappies

It was the last one... after I bought it I found a picture on the Dear Husband facebook page of longies worked up with the same set using the Evie Pants pattern... I'm even more excited now. I actually think I saw these on Ravelry last year!

I'm going to work up a couple pairs of shorties with some Patons yarn I have ... just to get warmed up and get used to the evie pants pattern. Then I'm going to make these in a large for next winter!!

Re: where to find yarn for scrappies

Nevermind... they just refunded my order, apparently someone else bought it from another site before me (double listed, ugh!). So frustrating, not a happy mama!
