          • Rules:
        1. Must use “scraps” - what would qualify as “scraps”?
          1. Leftover Yarn
          2. Leftover Fabric (yes, you can sew a FO)
          3. Yarn that you are repurposing from its originally intended project (must also list in the Frog it Thread)
        2. FO can be knit, crocheted, sewed, etc.
        3. WIPS ALLOWED
        4. Needs some pattern suggestions?
