See that really thin yarn in the third photo? At Knit Michigan I bought a box of yarn for $10; in it were about a half dozen cones of the stuff, including two cones larger than a 48 ounce can of coffee. I've been combining it with my scraps and then using multiple balls to crochet the beds. Even so, the large cones are still nearly full. It's cheap acrylic so I don't feel bad using it up on the beds but I'm a little frustrated at just how much of the stuff is left.

I am always in awe of how swiftly you create things - 3 in a week!?

Well, keep in mind that my house is a complete mess and I don't really have a life outside of LJ/DW, watching TV and working. And that I combine watching far too much television with working on my various craft projects. Also, as the animal beds go, I make them with multiple yarns held together; each round of single crochet measures close to a centimeter in height. They work up fast. Unlike, say, the shawl I've been working on since June 29th of last year. It's going to be gorgeous but I'm barely past the half-way point.

That is a really cool way to upcycle and purpose yarn that otherwise might go to waste! I know the animals appreciate it. If I can think of another project for the thin yarn, I'll shout out. *g*
